With seats at the Birmingham Hippodrome to see the Birmingham Royal Ballet's production of Shakespeare Triple Bill
, Ad and I spent the afternoon moseying around Birmingham's Grand Central Station, High Street and Bullring shopping centre before retiring for an early dinner at The Cosy Club.
The Cosy Club is a stones throw away from Birmingham Cathedral, and a short walk from Birmingham Snow Hill station. The Cosy Club is great if you want a meal or drinks with loved ones or friends without being in the heart of clubland, Broadstreet or the price of the Mailbox's outlets.
|Time for a tipple...|
We arrived at The Cosy Club at around 4pm and it was pretty quiet in the restaurant area, but rather busy in the bar area. The restaurant is split over two floors, all decked out with shabby chic, quirky interiors and is for diners only. Cosy club is fun and quirky and provides a lovely atmosphere for cosy dining.
With a cider, an orange and lemonade ordered and a jug of water for the table, it was onto the food...
|My Thai quinoa burger with red peppers.|
As a vegetarian, I sometimes find myself limited in choice when dining out, but cosy club's menu caters for lots of different diets. I chose the Thai spiced quinoa burger with chips and house slaw.
Ad opted for a mean meat burger called the 'Hero' burger which also came with slaw and sweet potato chips. As we like to share, we split our chips 50/50 to get the best of both worlds with the delicious crispy fries.

Full of flavour and a hefty portion, the burgers were both under £10 which is reasonable for an inner city location, we had no qualms paying the bill at just over £30. We even added on a pudding to share after we'd finished our mains.
Location+Food+Venue+Good price= Happy.
|Finished every last bite!|
Opting for a sticky toffee pudding with a big scoop or ice cream on top for good measure and two spoons, pudding finished off our meal nicely.
|There was even room for a delicious sticky toffee pudding!|
Overall the food was fantastic and I loved the fact that you can see the kitchen and food being prepared, without the closed door. The staff were lovely and approachable and allowed us to relax and take our time. The restaurant, bar and toilets were all clean and decorated with the quirky aesthetic throughout.
It really is a cosy place, that I highly recommend and will be back again soon to eat my way through the menu, especially as I spied a nice and inviting coffee menu!
