Probably the first "Original" dining experience I've had in the past 10 years! Menu is creative and different without being "Trendy". Staff were very attentive and looked like they wanted to be there. Even when drinks weren't available it wasn't an issue to us as we were really enjoying the vibe. Music is played at a decent volume, which totally adds to the experience. Open kitchen shows confidence and desire to be approachable.
Great drinks space upstairs; Massive bar downstairs; lovely dining area; and then there's the huge outside space by the canal.
If you're going to The Arena ... then this is an absolute must beforehand ... 3 minute walk

We ate here before heading to the nearby Birmingham Arena. The Distillery is a great place to drink and eat. The selection of drinks is excellent and the quality of the cocktails is superb. Food is very good and great value. There were 4 of us and everyone thought the food was excellent. Service was very good too. Overall a great experience. Looking forwards to coming back.

Was really nice. The place is really cool and trendy. The Service was attentive, but not overpowering. The ambience was casual but chic. The Food was different, well presented and a very pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed the experience, thanks to the Team

Really nice place to take a date. good atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, and the food was excellent. It's in a great location next to the canal, so well worth stopping in if you're passing by.

Great location on the canal, food was very good and the chef even made plain versions for my partner who doesn't really do Spicey food. The pitchers of gin cocktails are really good to share.
