Quirky And Unique Restaurants In The UK

If there's two things that Brits are pretty good at... it's wolfing down top-notch grub and being a bit weird. Then it's no surprise that we have put those two concepts together across the country, opening a whole host of eccentric eateries from Glasgow's West End to the Brighton beachfront. We've rounded up a selection of the most quirky and unique restaurants in the UK - just in case you're looking to try something a little different next time supper rolls around.

Sheffield: Public

170 user reviews 5

While settling down for your meal in a toilet wouldn't be our usual recommendation, Sheffield's subterranean drinking and dining den Public is quite the exception. Since being converted into a restaurant bar, its gained a reputation as one of the best places for date nights and gathering with mates alike.

From dancing to drinking and just about everything in between, The Herbalist & Junipers is a one-stop shop for your night out. One of the most unusual restaurants in Kent thanks to pretty panelled ceilings, quirky cocktails and late night openings, this one isn't to be missed.

London: Ballie Ballerson

4409 user reviews 4

It's a giant ballpit. Need I say more? Yes, Ballie Ballerson is the place giving big kids the night of their lives. If you dream of diving into a pool of plastic balls, then head over to one of the most quirky restaurants in London. They'll be serving up tasty pizzas and nostalgia-inspired cocktails to take you right back to those play days.

London: Arthur's Pizza

15 user reviews 4

Cute, cosy and pretty darn quirky, Arthur's Pizza is a brilliant place to rest your feet and have a bite to eat in London. Wolf down wood-fired pizzas (which you can also enjoy alfresco-style on the pretty terrace), as well as Italian small plates and delish desserts.

Located on the ground floor of Birmingham's Polish Centre, this quirky eatery takes the form of a rustic lodge, packed with thatched ceilings, fur throws and pastoral murals. Their menu too retains a homely quality with a selection of traditional dishes, including moreish pierogi and pickled herring.
