Table Talk – Friday 13th April


Birmingham graffiti artist Andy Mills has created #DigbethDozen – a map of twelve independent bars and restaurants to visit in the area. So next time you are wondering where to go check out the artwork in Little Anne Street for inspiration, with venues ranging from a tapas bar to the region’s best street food event there should be something to whet your appetite.

The Old Post Office Warwick

Congratulations to The Old Post Office in Warwick, which has just been awarded Heart of Warwickshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018. This independent micropub in West Street, was created by Tom Douglas, a publican with over 40 years experience in the industry and it is managed by his daughter Gem Douglas. The Old Post Office serves cask ale, craft beer and real cider.

The Manor House of Whittington dessert platter

The Manor House of Whittington , has launched a new Spring menu. Nestled between Kidderminster and Stourbridge in the rolling Staffordshire countryside, this is a new all-day bar and restaurant offering steaks, wood-fired pizza, Sunday roasts and dessert platters.

What’s on in Warwick

It has been pretty quiet over in Warwick for a while and all of a sudden there are two new openings planned for local venues!

Smith Street Warwick

According to Big Hospitality, the Castle Keep Kitchen Bar has been bought by a group of local friends, who intend to open a new restaurant and cocktail bar. Number 6 Castle Street is scheduled to open in May, with Andrew Paul as general manager and Shahid Ahmed as chef.

I’m watching Twitter to see when the new bar The Old Post Office opens in West Street, with its real ale and pies.

High Pavement Warwick

Until then, on Tuesday 8 April, High Pavement  is hosting a French dine with style evening in association with Wine Poole. Chilled crab consommé, fillet of cod and navarin of lamb feature on the menu for £35 per person.
