Carnivores rejoice. A dedicated pasture of MEAT is primed for grazing in Birmingham's Arcadian Centre. 

With all rare breeds great and small, Meating is a meeting place for the best heritage slabs supplied from Yorkshire based Farmison Meats. Opened by two guys with a penchant for good quality foods and of the carnivorous nature, Meating uses hot charcoals as their primary cooking method so everything you eat in this place is cooked with tender, juicy goodness. Sauces, fries and all other manner of toppings and ingredients comes freshly prepared on the day from a kitchen led by Damien Woodcock. 

The menu shouts about steaks of the flat iron, t-bone, ribeye and rump variety as well as belly pork ribs, grilled swordfish, and a range of burgers so names 'Lovely Buns'. Try their Lazycow patty which is a powerful and heady stack of beef short rib meat, caramelised onion, bernaise and pan juices for extra dunking measure. 

After you've devoured your way through their meaty mains, there's a whole counter of gelato, gluttony goodness to get through. As the saying goes, 'a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the LIPS.'

Meating Birmingham - Restaurant Bar Review

If we’re honest, the Arcadian isn’t the first place that springs to mind when you’re planning somewhere to go specifically for dinner. Meating is a bit of a game changer in that respect; located on the top floor, it really stands...

Loved the food but it took ages to get served with only 2 groups of people in the restaurant and it was freezing cold. If they could improve service it'd be great. The BBQ meat was really taste :)

Loved this place! Loved the decor and how it's not quite your average hipster venue. Great food, great staff, really nice place for a casual, but good dinner. The burgers are ACE.
