Having been to this restaurant many times and enjoyed both food and ambience we were somewhat shocked by our recent visit. We were prepared for change as the website and some of the recent emails had informed us of a change of chef. However, why change a formula that worked so well so dramatically? Change is only a good thing... More

I was in this restaurant the first time about six months ago, intrigued by the reviews that painted an atmosphere of other times with a retro twist, looking for something different and not too "starry" in which to dine during a business trip. That is, the reviews did not lie, when you gets inside this restaurant is like entering a... More

Have been here several times before. On this occasion we went to a theme night 'Midnight in Paris' which cost £20 per person in addition the cost of our meal and drinks. The £20 included a glass of sparking, a rice ball and chicken liver parfait on a small piece of toast. I was expecting more for £20. My starter... More

Have visited here twice before, both for birthday celebrations, and on this occasion for my sons 21st birthday. I was a little hesitate at first on making a 3rd booking as I noticed the menu had changed from our previous visits, and Annexe appeared to be going in a different direction with a new chef. However we were not disappointed... More

We have visited Annexe on several occasions and always enjoyed our experience. I noticed that it has recently dropped down the rankings on TripAdvisor so thought that I owed them a review from our visit in August. We went with friends as we had often told them how good it is and they agreed. We had a lovely night -... More

Oh dear, what's happened to one of my favourite restaurants in Birmingham? Something dramatic in my view, and it's not particularly positive. Ah yes...a change of chef...a new aspiration for a Michelin star or two seems to be the driving force behind this new venture. Really...why? Gone is the simplicity of good food, inspiring dishes and....diners! Having been told that... More

Dear Sir, I am very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy our new menu and I am surprised that you found the ambience and service changed, as we have maintained our family style warm and buzzy environment. We do take our bookings in time slots - 16 people each half an hour. What the person meant on the... More

The restaurant was like something out of the 1930's. Interesting decor and good ambience. The food was good value and tasted great!

What a place - takes you back to the 1930's!! Food was fantastic, as well as the service! I had a look on trip adviser prior to our visit to Birmingham, to see where would be good to eat. I am so glad I found this place! I would 100% recommend! The espresso martinis are spot on too!!!
