The city centre is no stranger to fine restaurants but it’s eateries like Sangria that are proving that some of the best places to eat in Birmingham can often be found further afield. The charming indie restaurant has become a firm favourite with locals, serving hearty helpings of tapas, paella and more in Sutton Coldfield.
Found on Birmingham Road, Sangria is more than ideal for a casual meal with friends after a trip to Empire Cinema, bargain hunting in Gracechurch shopping centre or feeing the swans at Wyndley Pool with the kids. It’s no wonder it’s one of the best places to dine out in Birmingham for diners that don’t mind going a bit further for a cracking meal.
Spread out over two storeys, Sangria is one of the more spacious restaurants in Birmingham with plenty of room for big family get-togethers and dinner parties. The traditional restaurant will make diners feel right at home with its warm yellow and red colour scheme, cosy dining room furniture and helpful staff. Their menu is also well labelled, with many options to suit those with special dietary requirements.
Tapas lovers are in good company at Sangria. Like the best Spanish restaurants, their menu revolves around traditional Spanish dining. But unlike the tapas that can be typically found in British Spanish eateries, they serve theirs in plentiful portions. Diners can tuck into dishes such as beer-braised chorizo, albondigas, croquettes and fried calamari with aioli, and if there’s room for pudding, their Crema Catalana will go down a treat.
Anyone looking for authentic Spanish cuisine in Birmingham will find no better destination than Sangria. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to a bottle of red wine, pudding or a starter.
