    Restaurant Folium, Jewellery Quarter – Birmingham

    I haven’t heard a bad thing about this restaurant and since visiting, I can understand why. Folium is a beautiful, minimal and modern venue in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. There are plenty of places I could have chosen when looking for a gorgeous restaurant to take my boyfriend to on his 30th birthday. With so many new openings in Birmingham City Centre, it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming when looking for something simplistic with tasteful menus. Truth is, when arriving at midday on April 18th, I couldn’t have been happier with my choice. Restaurant Folium is one of the newest multi-course dining experiences with great wine, fantastic…

But every now and again, I like to escape from the city; from my normal routine and head out on a country drive somewhere in the UK. Over the last couple of years, I’ve made it my mission to visit at least two new places every 12 months. My most recent trip was a surprise weekend trip to Salisbury where we saw Stonehenge, the cathedral and stayed in a gorgeous shepherd’s…

    Jojolapa Nepalese Bar & Kitchen: Birmingham Review

    Famished Brummies looking for a sleek, cosy-chic space ideal for dinner dates and cocktail parties need look no further than Jojolapa on Frederick St, Jewellery Quarter. Since its recent shift to the Jewellery Quarter from Newhall Street, it’s a place I’ve walked past dozens of times. Ashamedly I’ve never actually visited Jojolapa, not even in its former destination.
