Seems like a family friendly sort of place. Very popular with railway workers as it is opposite the station. Wide choice of meals from breakfast, sandwiches, other hot meals. Staff are friendly and accommodating and great service. Take away available if you’re in a hurry....Lovely atmosphere.More

Thank you for your comments and yes indeed we hope back to normal soon but alas as Birmingham is still in tier 3 we can only do take away. Let’s hope better news on 30 December when the government reviews the tiers again
