The Man and Myth pops up at Urban Coffee, Birmingham. 


After a few months of Nomad in Kings Heath there will now be a sister project and pop-up to tempt hungry punters. 

Nomad founder, Alex Claridge, alongside Chris Hughes (Kitchen School) and Thomas Harrison (previously head chef at The Drop Forge) are opening an honesty bar and experimental restaurant; The Man and the Myth will open Wednesday to Saturday (17:00 – late) at Urban Coffee Company on Church Street. RESERVATIONS HERE –

from September 2nd.

They will offer a pay what you feel option by the glass of wine or beer.

 All bottles will be priced – with all below £20. 

 To my knowledge this will be the first honesty bar for Birmingham if not the UK. Wines will be listed by flavour & taste – and no other details.

The food will be British-ish, using wild and allotment grown produce, but with eclectic influences from where ever they so fancy.

 It will be a stripped back, accessible and relaxed sort of place that would be good for hanging out in. 

 Bar Menu for veggies 

 BAR – 17 – Late 


British cheeses, buttermilk crackers, caramelised plums, pickles & smoked cheddar brûlée – £12


The best olives we could find – £3

 SUPPER – 18 – 21 hours 

for veggies. 

 Changing weekly, maybe more often. British-ish cooking with eclectic tendencies. Order what you like.

(v) – Yorkshire fettle, apple, hazelnut, spiced red cabbage 

Pumpkin, rose, blue cheese, enoki mushrooms (v) – £7 
Lavender & sake parfait, roast beetroot, honey, cinder toffee – £4 

There will be meat and fish on the menu too. 

There is a sort of taster menu with no frills- £30 per head. Inclusive of meat and fish. 

Unsure how veggies fit in here. 

*all subject to change and curve-balls from mother nature.

Nomad is due to re open in the City Centre in September/October. 

More Details to follow when I know them. 

Thanks for reading 

Andy 😊
