We would really recommend a visit to Craft. The food was exquisite, we had four courses (starter, main, dessert and cheese), and at £40 a head, the value was incredible. The lamb main course I had, was one of the best dishes I have eaten in a long time. The cocktails were also fab.

I’m these difficult times, I really felt at ease, with hand sanitiser being used by staff, and regular cleaning, as well as the discreet temperature check on arrival.

We will definitely be returning.

Despite having a short rainy spell for our outdoor dining, we had a fabulous lunch. We were invited to move inside, but we opted to move slightly more undercover. The food was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. Each course was explained, service was excellent. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great music too, courtesy of DJ Dom. Fabulous afternoon, with a canal side view. Highly recommended. :)

Amazing food! Amazing service, we were in a pod (amazing, i recommend) for a while then moved out to a fire pit table (which was also great). The drinks/cocktail selection was also great.

Food was lovely, setting so so beautiful and peaceful. At 40 you don’t want to be in rammed bars with lots of rowdy teeny boppers so this was right up my street. Nicely spaced out and amazing decor and setting with views of the water front.

Slightly expensive for the portion sizes but it’s fine dining and was gorgeous x

The concept seems to have changed since my last visit when it was more tapas style food.

Now they offer an a la carte menu with some shearing dishes available instead such as meat or cheese platters.

The food was tasty and beautifully presented. The service was good with friendly staff.

The COVID adaptations are sensitive and help make you feel safe, though we are outdoors.

They major on English wines but have a spattering of internationals offerings too. I wish venues would provide more information on the wine list when they offer wines that they know are not well known or commonly available. You’re left to guess or tap up a server.

Good night out.

My first meal out since lockdown, I was hesitant to go. I'm so glad I booked! The greeting on arrival was perfect. There was a customer temperature check on entry. I met my friend and we had already purchased a deal for a 3-course meal from the set menu. We added drinks and caught up over the most delicious and well-presented food I've eaten in a long time. I wish we could have shared each other's and tried everything on offer, but post-lockdown wasn't really the right time for plate swapping. The service was excellent and I would love to come back. My only gripe was that it hadn't been made clear that the ICC is currently closed and it added some extra minutes onto my arrival time, so I was slightly late and therefore a little stressed by the time I got there.

Lovely place with tasty food, attentive and friendly service however, portions are very small and they did not serve bread as a side with the starters which was disappointing. I left still a little bit hungry, even though I had three courses. It was overall a nice experience but I wouldn’t rush back.

Limited menu, and had an issue with dietary requirement however when we spoke to the manager this was quickly rectified and I think was maybe just a training issue. As the manager would accommodate the requirement. Having dietary requirements did limit our options significantly however the food we had was truly delicious and I would recommend a visit.

Thanks for you review, we have opened with a shorter menu then normally intended as monitoring demand during the current circumstances is challenging, we have balanced the menu with 15 options give us much options available whilst maintaining quality, to support social distancing in a kitchen is hugely challenging and a subsequent reduction in team member to ensure this is possible means a natural reduction in menu options. We are however delighted you enjoyed your meal,we hope to see again you

Pod booked and confirmed on the day for 19:30 arrived 19:38 due to not knowing where the venue was (it was raining and I was in heels) to be told “you are late and will dine in the main restaurant”. Manager swiftly came over tapped on a screen and stated we will dine in the pod. But this initially put a dampener on our evening. (First evening out since lockdown) however; after that minor issue. The evening was lovely, great service and pods lovely warm. Food was excellent I just wish we could order sides with the set menu. Excellent value for money. Will book again.”

What an experience 👏. We were so happy with every aspect of Craft. In these very different times, we did debate whether to still go to Birmingham for my other halfs birthday, but I am so glad we did just to visit Craft. The food, service, safety considerations and wine were out of this world. So much care and thought had gone into all of it.

We loved our little pod outside where we could choose our own music and obviously socially distance at the same time! The Alexa was a brilliant idea that kept us reminiscing favourite songs throughout thd meal. Was awesome.

Beautiful, beautiful food and no issues at all catering for gluten free. There is a lot of competition in Birmingham as so many great restaurants, but Craft has now taken a spot in my top 3! We will be back as soon as we can.

The atmosphere was lovely and the afternoon tea was very unique. We let the restaurant know of an intolerance but it seems they got the food confused and my friend had eaten food that she was intolerant too and suffered a discomfort for the rest of the day.

Craft
Responded on 9 April 2020

The intolerance highlighted by the guest was cows milk, we double checked this on arrival and they confirmed it was only cows milk, the food was adapted to not include cows milk and after eating the food the customer said the intolerance was actually all dairy. It is somewhat challenging for a restaurant to accommodate intolerances when they the information provided to them isn't 100% accurate.

I found craft by chance and am so glad I did. Food was great. Work of art at places. Good balance of acidity and flavours. Wine was even better. Good list. Not sure why it was not busier. Service was attentive. Explaination of food being served was great. Thank you. Choose English wines , they are really good.

I can’t wait to go back. Haven’t stopped thinking about the entire experience since Saturday eve. The wait staff were friendly, knowledgable and enjoyed telling you about each course and wine. The food was out of this world and it lives up to its name. This certainly is a ‘Craft!’ Every dish was so tasty and delicious with 4 or 5 different flavours and textures experienced at once but very well balanced . I’ve never had such a variety of food that delivered and exceeded itself course after course! This place is next level dining experience. I love the concept and the thought process. We had the taster menu with wine pairing which I highly recommend it was great value you will not be disappointed. We also tried the cocktails and they were delicious. Truly unforgettable thank you Craft.

The food was exceptional but the service let them down. If the service had been on point, this would have been a 5/5 experience.
Unfortunately, wasn't that good from the off - no-one to meet us when we arrived,wobbly table (which was fixed by the waitress, with some napkins shoved under it!) no re-fills of hot drinks, no eye contact from other waiters and lack of attention. It took ages to get a cocktail menu and then that person never came back to take our order. We then managed to get the attention of a 3rd waiter, who acknowledged we wanted to order a cocktail and said he'd be back to us, but served his table and then went on his break!! We wanted to sample the cocktails as we're sure they'd be delicious based on the food, but didn't get chance as no-one wanted to take our order.
Given uncertain times with the Coronavirus, there appeared to be a lack of hygiene - tables not wiped down properly, waiters touching rims of glasses when serving water etc.
We are keen to book again, as we'd like to try out the main menu, but would hesitate due to our experience with the service.

Myself and sister had afternoon tea and it was by far the nicest afternoon tea either have had, and we’ve had a few!
The food was outstanding, exceptional flavour and presentation. The customer service received was also outstanding, very friendly and accommodating.
We would not hesitate returning to Craft and already looking at when we can go again. Would highly recommend to anyone considering visiting Craft Dining Rooms!!!
