REVIEW: Sunday lunch at Edwardian Tearooms, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Being one of my favourite places in the city, I was over the moon to head along to the Edwardian Tearooms alongside my fellow Birmingham bloggers to review their Sunday lunch. 

Arguably the most important meal of the week, i'm always up for trying a new Sunday lunch. But when the venue is as beautiful as the Edwardian Tearooms, which is located within Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, it isn't hard to enjoy the meal even more. 

To start the meal, we were given the option of red or white wine. Of course, we chose both! The white wine was Chilean and one I've never tried before. Called 'Santiano' Sauvignon Blanc, it was beautiful and crisp, and went alongside the meal perfectly.

For main, we had a selection of three, pork, beef and wild mushroom wellington. I went for the Roast Pork Loin with sage and onion stuffing. The pork was absolutely delicious, incredibly succulent and the crackling was lovely and crispy. The main came with roasted carrots, seasonal greens, red wine gravy and the biggest Yorkshire pudding I have ever seen! The meal also came with cauliflower cheese, which was super creamy and a great added extra. The other bloggers had the beef, which looked fantastic, and the wild mushroom wellington also looked super tasty.

To say that the main was filling would be a total understatement - talk about food baby! But, you know me, there is always room for dessert. I opted for the sticky toffee pudding which was served with custard. Now, this may be slightly biased as that is already my favourite dessert ever. But it really was absolutely delicious.

What I really enjoyed about the meal was that it's not trying to be special, or remarkable, it's just trying to be good, tasty food, which is all we really want on a Sunday afternoon right? It is a fantastic lunch, full with flavour, and for the price, actually quite the bargain! Every Sunday, you can enjoy two roasts for £20! Considering how much food you get for that price, I think it is incredibly reasonable.

The meal was incredibly enjoyable, but the venue really is something else. Full of character, colour and fun, even if you're not up for a Sunday lunch, you have to head there just to experience an hour or two in a wonderful venue. It is also the perfect opportunity to check out the museum and see one of the many exhibitions taking place.

However, it really is the staff that make the Edwardians Tearooms what it is. We were fortunate enough to meet many members of staff during our Sunday lunch visit, including the incredibly friendly head chef, and they couldn't do enough for us.
I cannot recommend this Sunday lunch, and the venue, enough. If you're on the hunt for a cracking roast in Birmingham, say hello to the Edwardian Tearooms.
