Circle Restaurant

The perfect place to start your visit to the theatre. Our stylish Circle Restaurant, located just a short walk from your seats off the Middle Circle Foyer, offers a relaxing dining experience with tempting, modern menus and an extensive wine list.

Our menus are adapted for each show and take advantage of seasonal produce. Wherever possible, we source from local suppliers; this helps us to achieve our aims of supporting the regional economy and to protect the environment by reducing food miles.

We've just been reviewed in the Birmingham Mail by Paul Fulford - click here to read the whole article.

"With the annual Christmas ballet just finished and the pantomime beginning, this is an especially busy time for head chef Chris Bratt-Rose and his brigade. A visit on a hectic Friday evening proved that they were coping well with a full service in the 95-cover restaurant, a bright and airy first-floor space with a view over the twinkling lights of Hurst Street.

"It’s easy to get carried away when reviewing a place such as this – so impressed by its efficiency that unjustified praise is lavished on food and service. But with the most level of heads I say that service was slick and charming and that the food was good enough to have graced a standalone restaurant that aimed high."

And Richard McComb's leading food blog rates us pretty highly too:

"In short, the food has been transformed by head chef Chris Bratt-Rose. Rather than sitting in a theatre with an add-on, “second thought” restaurant, the standard of the food gives the impression that The Circle is a decent stand-alone dining room that just happens to have one of the UK’s largest touring venues attached."
