Birmingham is famed for its diverse food scene, most famously perhaps for its Asian restaurants. In fact the city was recently named as one of the top foodie destinations in the country, based on reviews from Booking.com (2017). And no wonder – it has six Michelin starred restaurants, some amazing street food, a booming cafe culture and plenty of child friendly restaurants too. Read on to discover our top places to eat in Birmingham with kids, so you can plan your mealtimes around the city with ease.
1. Loco Lounge
This neighbourhood cafe tops the lists of many parents when recommending places to eat in Birmingham with children. They have a great kids corner with games like Connect 4, Jenga and Scrabble, and the cosy “home from home” decor and ambience will make you feel instantly relaxed.
