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.

Food was amazing everyone in the party loved their meal and would definitely be returning.
We celebrated a 60th birthday and had a private area which was lovely and staff helped surprise with a birthday cake. Overall a lovely evening and celebration.

It was a lovely atmosphere! No network in the restaurant though and music kept going very loud then quiet. Servers were attentive and useful!

Overall good experience but not value for money

After being a customer at Anderson's Bar and Grill on 5 previous occasions, I had high expectations on my 6th visit for me and my partners 1st anniversary and we were certainly not disappointed!

I had arranged for Prosecco to be on ice on our arrival and our waitress brought it over as soon as she had sat us down at our table. The attention to detail reading out the monthly specials/Steaks menus was second-to-none just like it had been on every other occasion.

The 30oz Portherhouse steak (which i order everytime) was cooked 'Rare' to absolute perfection as always and the side orders of Home-cooked chips, new potatoes and green beans with garlic were also cooked to perfection!

As a special surprise after the main course, we were given a 'Happy Anniversary' aperitif of pieces of Ginger cake with real vanilla cream and raspberry coulis which was a beautiful touch even by Anderson's standards.

Overall, Anderson's is one of the best restaurants not just in Birmingham but in the whole of the UK and i will be back to visit again in the not so distant future!

Having been a previous diner here on more than one occasion, this visit was poor. Steaks were poor quality, one of which had to be sent back twice being too tough and not cooked to order. Will have to consider if we were to visit again in the future

On arrival it is lovely to have a drink at the bar and then be shown to our table.
The tables are well spaced out to give dinners a more secluded feel.
The flavours of the starters are delicious and so well presented.
I love the rustic charm of the decour.
Specials of the day have often been chosen and we have loved the service from the staff.
We always feel so looked after.
Well done for getting it right.

First off it’s not a cheap meal but every penny was well worth it. The steak was cooked to perfection, the presentation of each plate was nice, tables spread out nice (not too far from another table and not too close- enough to feel you have privacy but still feel you’ve not been put somewhere out the way), pace of the food was perfect, really friendly and knowledgable waitresses and perfect portion sizes. I would definitely go again. Parking may be a problem as it’s street parking with pay and display but not an issue (I found parking readily available on a Friday evening around 7pm). The decor was nice too. Went for my wife’s 30th and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Would highly recommend. Best steak in Birmingham.

Food is good althought pricey. The medium steaks still come out quite pink in the middle so I ordered a med-well, however it was burnt on the outside and very tough.
Pork belly starter is very tasty.

Purchased bottles of wine for waiter to knock half the bottle over my friend. Same waiter just brought over a cloth for my Friend to clean up the mess. Still included full cost of bottle of wine on the bill, when explained to a different waitress that half of the bottle got knocked over by Anderson’s staff they returned with a revised bill only discounting half the bottle of wine. Very shocked by the service and won’t be visiting again. Gaucho far better service and value for money

Went on a Thursday evening and had excellent steaks. Enjoyed a pre-prandial stroll around St Pauls Square on an unseasonably mild February evening. Recommend the kofti starter but the belly draft rib was good too. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Visited here a number of time, although not so much in the last 2years. Steak, Porterhouse was lovely, even though I could have eaten it myself.

The only down side of the evening, which was disappointing was the starters. We had 1 portion of scallops - very very small scallops x 2, like little buttons. Pork Rib with a glaze, tasted lovely, but again, 1 small piece of meat. Not value for money when you see they cost £8.50 per starter - £17 spent on two starters that were very small, and for us, this was not value for money.

Otherwise, nice location, nice staff, just need to think of the cost Vs Value of the starters.

Great food and staff were attentive. I’m not sure if they have another entrance but I have a poorly knee so the flights of stairs down, we’re difficult for me. Obviously if you were fit and able it wouldn’t matter.
For a restaurant of this quality the food and wine is reasonably priced. We had a lovely evening.

Attentive friendly staff, service quick and efficient. Food amazing, which was excellent as my favourite meal is steak...cooked to perfection. Hand cooked chips equally as tasty as was the garlic beans. Garlic potato mash was also devoured with gusto! Will definitely come again.

First time out there for a Valentine’s Day romantic dinner. Booked in advance, but table was not ready, had to wait 15’
Ordered drinks, came quickly, nice wine recommendation. Had to wait ~20’ for food, place seemed to be busy
Food choice is basic, but good quality, tasty and portion size is more than adequate. Only my sirloin had some bits that was fatty/chewy
Athmosphere would have been perfect, except the music was loud where we sat, so was difficult to talk in a normal voice
Overall good place, I can recommend, but please turn down the music :)

Last time we visited this restaurant 8 years ago. It was good. This time we were surprised. Average food and average place which attracts people with not very sofisticated taste. The tables are sticky, we had to ask to replace the cutlery. Just disappointing. Would we go back? Not really.

Fabulous birthday lunch. The restaurant was mainly empty which allowed for a really nice private celebration and lots of attention from the waiting staff who were friendly and efficient. Many thanks for the surprise birthday cake. The food was delicious. Could not fault the experience.

This is the 3rd time I have visited Anderson's in the past year and each time you are made to feel like a welcome guest. The owner Nicholas is always on hand keeping his eye on those in his restaurant and helping out serving dishes to the tables.

The steaks are always very good matched by a reasonably priced wine list,

Will definitely visit again, when fancying a steak and a glass of wine or two.

Very pleasant evening. Lovely starter, wine and side dishes. Little unfortunate with the sharing steak which had a lot of fat. The other couples steak was fine. Andersons good to knock some off bill because of it. Ambiance pleasant but prefer restaurants not below ground as no windows.
