Independent pub Company Peach are turning an Art Deco style townshouse in Edgbaston, Birmingham B15
into a 17 Century gastro pub. Which will be the first in Birmingham.
Due to open in late September the company run by Lee Cash and Hamish Stoddart will turn the former home of English architect Francis W B Yorke into a 100 cover pub. 🙂
The Highfield will be in leafy Edgbaston, opposite Michelin starred
Simpsons Restuarant and near
The Edgbaston cocktail bar and boutique hotel (see earlier review). Already a healthy foody location Edgbaston also houses The Blue Piano, and the
deli @ Edgbaston.
The Highfield will have a good mix of food for vegetarians from deli plates, to starters, to main courses and will also serve breakfasts from 8am.
From what I can see the menu will include a deli veggie board, Starters– soup, sauteed wild mushrooms, poached free range egg, toasted brioche, Mains– herb pancakes with squash and sage stuffing, and a Heritage tomato Tarte Tatin.
The food will be free range and sourced locally. See their website for details.
The Highfield is a boost to the local Edgbaston area, which is fast becoming a foodie destiantion and will soon have a new restaurant run by Pushkar on Broad Street too. See post to come shortly.
For vegetarians it looks a good place to go especially if you have a meat eating partner, friends or family. The drinks will include craft beers, real ale and a good strong wine and spirit list including local Langley’s Gin (not sure about cocktails).
It aims to be modern and quirky and have an art deco leaning with a British charm.
I will post more details of an opening date, bookings and menus when I have them and of course a review.
It sounds a charming opening.
For now, see their website http://www.highfieldedgbaston.co.uk for full details, and menus.
