Loves (Birmingham)

Scores: GFG 4 / H1

Valentine’s Day must be a big event in Birmingham as even on the day after, a lot of restaurants were still serving special menus at both lunch and dinner. This was slightly annoying as I hate to eat out on V day anyway and during this trip to Brum it meant that for the our first choice for a quiet Saturday lunch was booked out and then the second choice required a £10 a head pre-payment, even though it ended up being half empty on the day.

Loves is a canal side place that is slightly hard to find and is a short walk from Broad Street. The special menu offered on the day had two choices for each of the three courses, there was also a punchy tasting menu available.

Loch Duart Salmon, charred cauliflower, apple and lemon

The food here was decent, especially the savory courses  and was good value at lunch; however, it was nothing too memorable.
