Please note our Afternoon Tea is served Wednesday - Sunday from 13:00 - 16:30 and we ask you to pre-book to avoid disappointment.

Madeleine follows the tradition of grand hotels with luxurious cocktail bars: its double-height windows, sparkling chandeliers, and rich soft furnishings make it at once super-glamorous and utterly enticing.

We think that once you are sat at your table, sipping a cocktail or a glass of Champagne, you won’t want to leave – and who can blame you? We welcome you to enjoy some light French inspired snacks whilst with us, or why not indulge fully in our impressive Afternoon Tea, handcrafted by Head Pastry Chef, Roger Lomas, and his innovative team.

Our hope is to establish Madeleine as somewhere that’s exclusively for everyone, a glamorous setting that’s perfect for special occasions, celebrations, and treats but equally somewhere you can drop by on the spur of the moment (subject to availability, of course).

    We were sat in the lounge area no atmosphere and really cold. Service very poor. Definitely not worth the money. Very disappointing. I have been to Madeleine a number of times for drinks and recommend the bar to lots of friends but unfortunately my opinion had now changed. Had to go and find staff to order drinks, table not cleared, was like sitting in a cafe... Very disappointing day out
    Madeleine BarResponded 4 days ago
    Dear Steve, Thank you for choosing Madeleine and taking the time to share your experience with us, your feedback is invaluable to us as it helps us improve.

We can only improve taking in account our shortcomings, and I would like to invite you back to our Bar so we can show you the Madeleine you got to love and recommend; should you wish to take up my offer, please feel free to reach out to dan.vignali@grandbirmingham.co.uk I sincerely hope we can reassure you of our high standards and we can welcome you many times in the future.

    Good service in a good bar...but nothing outstanding. Wine list is limited. Cocktails excellent, cost on high side but expected. Bar itself very quiet, with better ambience (music) in other bar and restaurant located on lower floor of the hotel, there is a piano there too, but was closed during Saturday daytime, even the hotel area had better music. Whilst not wanting loud music, some background sound can often enhance.
    Madeleine BarResponded 4 days ago
    Dear LORDH, thank you for taking the time to leave us a feedback: it is thanks to comments like yours that we can improve and understand what we are lacking. I am sorry you found our wine list limited: we work very hard to make it more unique while still approachable and viable for us, so your opinion has been passed on our drinks department. I would like to also apologise for the lack of atmosphere: we tend to be pretty quiet during the time of your visit, however we can (and we already have) improve our ambience with a better playlist at a more buzzing volume. I hope your last visit didn't change your opinion of Madeleine and we hope we can welcome you again in the future. Warm Regards, Dan Vignali Assistant Bar Manager

    Afternoon tea booked for my wife’s 40th. The restaurant was outstanding the food and drink was simply amazing and the service was fantastic apart from one guy. Didn’t get his name but he was American and claimed he was “floor manager” or something alike, walking round with an iPad. We sat down at 2pm, he came over 5 minutes into us sitting down (still no food or drink ordered at this point) and he introduced himself and he crouched in front of us to then preceded to tell us that we had the table for 2 hours and that at 4pm they had another booking, he then got up and left. Fully appreciate you have other bookings to cater for but I’ll be honest being told 5 minutes into our afternoon that we had to be gone by 4 but me on edge, not sure what he expected us to do with the info, we had no intention of staying longer than the 2 hours. As the afternoon went on I seen him flitting around with this ipad not doing a lot to be honest. At one point I seen him have an exchange of words with what I believe was a fellow member of staff and she turned on her heels and walked off abruptly from him, I hope it was a member of staff and not a customer anyway, didn’t look good put it that way. We enjoyed our afternoon tea and drinks, it was now 3.20pm and we were readying ourselves to leave, he came over again and knelt down in front of us and reminded us again that we had to leave at 4pm “it’s just a half hour reminder that’s all, it’s what I have to do….thank you” well it was in fact a 40 minutes until we had to leave but I’ll let him off. Just felt this guy really put us on edge, his approach, behaviour around the restaurant just put a slight tarnish on what was a great day. The other staff were excellent, very attentive and you could tell they were proud to work there. The food was excellent and we would highly recommend to family and friends but this guy needs to reevaluate his approach to customer service.

    Dear Michael, Thank you very much for choosing Madeleine and taking the time to share your experience with us. First of all I would like to apologise for failing to meet your expectations: our team works diligently to create a welcoming environment and I'm really sorry to hear that we failed to do so in this instance. I am sorry the host made you feel rushed and didn't explain why we have to inform every bookings of the time frame: this is just to ensure every other bookings on the same table can enjoy the experience to the fullest, and I am sorry our host failed to explain it to you but said it abruptly. We can only improve taking in account valuable feedback so I would like to have the pleasure to welcome you back to our Bar in the future. Warm Regards, Dan Assistant Bar Manager
