Summerrow is home to Après, Mechu and Fleet Street Kitchen. Après is chilled by day and buzzing at night, a relaxed ski-lodge style bar withwood burning fires, giant plasma screens showing the latest sporting fixtures and mellow music that blends into up-tempo grooves for the evening.
Mechu has the best of everything. Downstairs is the Bar and grill, offering laidback informality. Upstairs, though, is the ultimate in exclusivity: a VIP club lounge with a stylish nod to the sixties and luxurious champagne bar.
Fleet Street Kitchen offers unpretentious modern British flavours, cooked on fire. Steak is the star with rare-breed cuts sourced from British producers and given the ultimate grilling courtesy of the Kitchen’s exclusive Barbecoa grill.
Rotisserie chicken and poussin, whole fish and burger sliders are exposed to the same fiery treatment while abundant deli boards and a generous helping of naughty British puds round-off a deliciously comforting menu. With its countryluxe interior peppered with vintage tiles and ‘retrouve’ furniture, Fleet Street Kitchen can be enjoyed from lunchtime to late into the night. Discover the hideaway downstairs bar with its regular Friday Night Live sessions and laidback lounge vibe.

Bloc hotel is a stylish and contemporary hotel located in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter within the city centre. The village atmosphere created by its cafes-bars and restaurants is complemented by the business-shopping-arts and sports facilities that are also on its doorstep. We have taken loose inspiration from Japanese pod style hotels which means much larger rooms more akin to a cabin on a luxury yacht with finishes and fittings to match. The rooms are equipped with a King Size Double Bed, luxurious linen, climate control, wet room with monsoon drench shower, Samsung 32inch LED Flat Screen TV and high speed WIFI. Birmingham is of course a centrally located travel hub and for many of our visitors that will be the most important factor in just how quickly and conveniently they can access the motorway network, national rail and international flights.
