    Pity you are closing and hope to see you back!!! The night was amazing -thank you! The only thing that stood out was that the music was too loud and at times too warm! The wines were amazing and staff super attentive :)

    Had a lovely evening tasting primo and basic wines. Olives are to die for, so bought some tins and a couple of bottles of wine. Bohemian style venue- open and airy for Summer. Lots of greenery makes the place feel botanical

    Took a long time for our wine to actually be served to us. Really wanted to order more drinks but service was not easy to get so had to leave as didn’t have time before dinner reservation. Wine menu fairly overwhelming. Very basic ‘nibbles’.

    Had a great time at wine freedom on Saturday afternoon and tried the orange wine wine flight and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were very engaging and explained in detail about the background of the wine and the regions as well as the flavours of the wine. Would highly recommend and will be back again

    Fantastic and friendly service. Wine tastings are a fun and approachable way to learn about wines. Unfortunately it was a bit slow on our food and hard to find an available server to checkin on our order. Due to the lack of insulation it was absolutely freezing, hopefully adjustments can be made to improve heating but otherwise I’d come back when the weather warms up. Thanks for the lovely wine tasting!

    Very disappointed. I had heard really good things about Wine Freedom from friends and was so excited to go. However we found the waiting service to be exceptionally poor. We had one glass of wine each with the intention of having a think about what bottle we wanted to share. We had empty glasses for about 15 minutes and no one noticed. We then tried to flag down a waitress who told us she would come back in a minute. We then waited about 15-20 minutes whilst she spent at least 5-10 minutes with 2 other tables explaining different bottles. In this time we decided to just get the bill and go somewhere else. It is a lovely place and great interior. The wine was delicious too. Just a shame we were neglected as customers and therefore don't think I'll be returning.

    We came to Birmingham for an overnight stay. Wine freedom was recommended to us by a friend and we are so pleased we came and to digbeth too. The atmosphere was fantastic, wine and education on the type of wine we were drinking was so informative. The girl that served us knew so much about all the different wines. The food was delicious. Couldn’t recommend it more

    Really nice place, excellent wine and knowledgeable staff. It was really interesting to learn about the natural wines and the orange wine in particular was delicious! Food was very tasty if slightly limited, cheeseboard was excellent but only a small gripe but felt like there should be maybe slightly more chutneys. Overall one of my new favourite places and will definitely be back.

    I only put one star on the option for food as there was not really a place or option to have food, we were not offered it but at the same time didn't ask. A great red wine tasting experience, our 1st and definitely not out last by experienced wine staff.

    Love it here, the wine is lovely and the atmosphere is great. Staff are laid back approachable & friendly. However, the food is a bit of a joke 😂. Paid £12 for 4 small thin slices of cheese and 4 slices of bread thought there may be a hidden camera. But had a lovely time so let it slide but won’t be ordering that again. See you soon!

    Not particularly friendly and would have been helpful if the menu was explained as we didn't realise you could pay to drink a bottle in until after we'd ordered some very expensive glasses. But it was a cool place and the atmosphere was quite nice.
