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.

Had waited a long time to get a table for this restaurant which had been recommended and was disappointed with quality and quantity of food. Had scallops for starter which were cut in half and cold followed by fillet steak which was very tough. There was 8 of us and half of the party were also disappointed . I personally would not return.

Much as it pains me to say, on this occasion I can only give This establishment a 4*.
Everything about the meal was excellent, service faultless, only thing is that the chips have been changed from our previous visits. While still good, not as good as the ones previously.
Personally I would also rather see a salt and pepper grinder set on the table, rather than the 70’s throwbacks cruet set that is provided.

The restaurant had been recommended to us by friends and, for sure, it did not disappoint. We celebrated a birthday and we had a fabulous evening. The staff went the extra mile to ensure that we really enjoyed our dining experience and they helped to make the occasion very special indeed. There was a relaxed atmosphere and our servers were very friendly, efficient and attentive. The food quality was excellent (the steaks were cooked to perfection!!). I am very happy to recommend this fantastic restaurant for a special occasion. Thanks to all for a truly memorable dining experience - we shall definitely return!!

8 of us went for a 30th birthday and included a nut allergy and GF in our party. We had a great time and everyone really enjoyed the food and drink. I was very impressed by how attentive they were to our allergy needs which is often difficult. Only slight negative was the quality of the acoustics. Overall it was a great dining experience.

Went on Saturday night food was great , surf and turf and partner had the cod. setting was nice....wasn’t as lively as expected but likely be due to us arriving quite late on. Staff really pleasant, not overly priced for good quality food and service.

We were very disappointed with the food this time. If you have to pay for every element to build a complete dish then this is not value for money. Too expensive for what it was. We were not the only couple asking why you are served a dish of chips each but you have to share a silly little bowl of green beans. Crazy.

I’ve been to Anderson’s several times and have always had a great experience and excellent steaks. I have always recommended Anderson’s to friends and family, however my last experience was one that I wouldn’t lite to repeat. The steak I had was the T bone steak, it was tough, chewy and sinewy. I did complain and they offered me a free dessert . I go to Anderson because I know I’m paying for a decent steak. I won’t be going back again and I definitely won’t be recommending them.
Poor experience and very disappointed.

Would highly recommend Anderson's, we have been going for many years for different special occasions and never fail to have a fabulous evening, the food, staff and venue is perfect. We have recently been for our anniversary and had the pleasure of meeting Dan who introduced me to oysters, my new found love on the menu so I thank you.

Loved the Anderson Grill for our 20year anniversary meal. We had the special starter of scallops and monkfish which was delicious. The ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. We were too full for desert but were served a small chocolate torte with happy anniversary piped on the plate in chocolate. The staff were excellent and loved the feel of the restaurant .

It was just a nice experience.
They forgot food and drinks and had to ask for them .
Felt like we was shoved up a corner.
Air con was on which made it cold.
Food was just warm. Food tasted lovely but could have done with being warmer
All in all it was just “nice”
