Edwardian Tearooms - Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
The Edwardian Tearooms serve up a delicious menu in an incredible historic venue - plus all sales support good causes.
Did you know the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, have a fantastic restaurant selling breakfast, main meals, a delicious selection of fresh cakes, hot beverages, sandwiches and children's meals hidden away in the stunning Victorian listed building, that houses incredible pieces of history? Nope, I didn't know either, until they invited me to enjoy an evening of fizz, festive canapes and Christmas songs played by a talented guy on an acoustic guitar.
I have been to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery numerous times, I appreciate its historic pieces and gorgeous architecture, I especially love the Ancient Egypt collection, so I was really excited when I got the invite. Upon arrival I was greeted with a glass of Prosecco, and as it was my first time checking out the
Edwardian Tearoom I was amazed at how stunning it looked, with a high ceiling, pretty lighting, miss-matched furniture and the sheer size of the place, its certainly somewhere you could sit for hours with a coffee, a piece of red velvet cake and your laptop, as it was so peaceful and relaxing.
During the event I got chatting to some very friendly and fun PR ladies, so we sat back and relaxed with our glasses of Prosecco and enjoyed a delicious range of festive canapes, such as warm winter spiced parsnip soup shots; mini hot turkey, cranberry and sage buns; king prawns with redcurrant chilli dip; brie and cranberry tart; Christmas ice cream cornets and fruitcake bites. The canapes were beautiful and the whole evening had such a lovely atmosphere and got me in the festive spirit.
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much that I couldn't wait to try out their daytime menu, so this week I popped in for an hour or two, to do some studying and of course stuff my face with a British classic - Battered cod, chips & rustic leaves with a lime and caper mayonnaise, the meal was scrumptious and it was a nice change to have salad instead of peas which I usually have it with, the lime mayonnaise was a great zesty touch too.
The incredible dining space can also be hired for events, plus they have a three course Christmas menu for £14.50 per person so I am going to try and get my family down to the city so we can have a pre-Christmas celebration.
All income generated by the Edwardian Tearooms helps to support the Birmingham Museums Trust, so while your eating delicious food in an outstanding venue, your supporting a great cause :).
