Where can you go for really good Fish and Chips without having to drive at least 100 miles to the nearest seaside? Chamberlains opened its doors in March 2011 has the answer as they claim that their Fish and Chips are a “taste of the seaside” yet on the Birmingham/Sandwell border.

Without doubt Chamberlains is Birmingham’s premier Fish and Chip venue, it boasts a 76 seat licensed restaurant, disabled facilities, wifi and free car parking, there is also a takeaway too!

Even though this family owned restaurant has been opened less than a year it has soon built a great reputation and was rewarded in January 2012 when Chamberlains was recognised at the National Fish and Chip Awards as the “Best Newcomer to the Fish and Chip Industry ” this was followed in February during National Chip Week when Chamberlains were voted “Best Chippy Chips in the Midlands” Back in May 2011 the Birmingham Mail gave the restaurant 5 stars and the local council also awarded Chamberlains 5 stars for Hygiene and Food Safety!

So what makes this restaurant so special? It’s the perfect white fish cooked in a light and crispy batter, the homemade minted mushy peas and the attention to detail showed in serving up Britain’s favourite dish! Its not just fish and chips though, there is a range of starters, other fish, meat and vegetarian main courses but also tempting desserts.

Chamberlains which is highly rated on review sites is open every day from 12 noon through to 9.00pm for lunch, tea or dinner.

The Edgbaston is equipped with three cocktail bars.

Cocktails are our passion and those cocktails are prepared for you by internationally recognised award winning bartenders. Our bartenders live, sleep, and breathe cocktail culture; when they are not crafting beautiful cocktails behind our well stocked bar they are travelling the country sourcing new ingredients, visiting producers and competing in cocktail competitions. Edgbaston bartenders do not consider cocktails as a vocation, but a way of life. We strive for perfection in everything we do; whether that to be sourcing furniture from around Europe, to make our venue the most comfortable place for you to relax in, or scouring the music world for the latest and greatest in new wave jazz to sooth you as you drink.

It is this quest for perfection that drives us, that takes us all over the world. In the last few years, we have travelled all over the world to ensure that The Edgbaston is setting cocktail trends, not following them.

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.
