We are the West Midlands’ premier, award-winning steakhouse and we pride ourselves on offering rare breed beef. Situated in the picturesque Georgian Square of St Paul’s Church, we reside in the eighteenth-century cellars once known as The Bucklemaker.

With our expertise and passion, we endeavour to create a great atmosphere and a high quality of service and food. Along with fine British beef across our steak menu, our exclusive Market Menu makes a limited amount of near-forgotten rare, native and unique breeds of beef, reared locally in the UK, accessible to our diners.

Our aim is to give you a relaxed and informal approach to dining at the best possible value. So, whether it’s a business lunch, a romantic dinner for two or a party with friends, we hope to be wining and dining you very soon.

I love Anderson’s. Personally best place for steak! Sirloin - medium rare - perfect! Chips rather than potatos. The bread was a little hard.
The only downfall is that I felt like the waitresses were eyeballing us to leave when we’d finished our food, we should feel welcome but all in all I would go back!

My boyfriend and I were in Birmingham for a concert and I googled best steak. We were not disappointed. I’ve eaten plenty of steak in plenty of countries and cities and this was by far one of the best! We both have the fillet. It was cooked to perfection. We only tried to book a table the week before and as it was a Saturday, it was fully booked so we ended up eating at 5 but it was fine. The ambience was good and the service attentive. I imagine it can get quite busy and noisy as the tables are quite close together but it’s cosy.

Food was incredible, service was very good seeing as it was very busy. However they had a hen party in taking shots and shrieking for the whole duration of the meal. Really ruined what should have been a quiet romantic birthday meal. The restaurant was aware it was a birthday meal and it really wouldnt have taken much to ensure we werent directly next to this party. I really wanted to enjoy our evening but we spent the whole meal trying to talk over the screaming and not concentrating on each other and the amazing food. Overall pretty disappointing.

Homely atmosphere, greeted immediately, so not kept hovering in a new place.
Staff were polite and attentive. I was allowed to have a larger piece of monkfish for my main, instead of the surf/turf offered on the menu.
Food was presented quickly and all looked delicious and tasted good.
I recommend the oyster starter and any of the steak options.
Classy puds, modern take on a rhubarb crumble was lovely.
Good choice of wine.
We liked that there was no service charge.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, the food was good and the staff were very professional. However, it was a bit noisy when we were seated, we asked to be moved because of the loud noise. Your staff moved us to a much quieter seating area. We would recommend this restaurant to others and we would come back again. Thank you.

Amazing food and amazing ambiance however the service was a little slow. Our table was booked for 7.15 and the bread for the table only came at around 8.30. But on the contrary, it was nice to enjoy the meal without the feeling of being rushed. We will 100% be returning. Such a lovely restaurant!!

Greeted on arrival by staff and manager. Offered a drink before dining. Table ready 15 minutes after drink, so timing just right. Food order prompt and correct. Excellent 30oz Shorthorn speciality steak for 2 - cooked perfectly. Timings between courses about right - no excessive delays between courses. Overall experience excellent.

Having never visited the bar and grill before I didn’t know what to expect.
From the minute I arrived too when I left the staff were polite and extremely helpful , I couldn’t find any fault with the food both mine and my Fiancce steak were cooked to perfection which is hard to find.
I would highly recommend Anderson’s to anyway that likes a good steak.

Overall enjoyable evening. Slightly disappointing we booked a table for 5 only to be greeted with a table for 4 people and an extra chair squeezed onto the end, food was incredible all round! Only other down side was a table of 12 rather loud people were seated next to us and it did dampen the cosy atmosphere from beforehand. Overall good experience and we will be back
