Blending simplicity with big, bold flavours, Tom’s Kitchen Birmingham is open seven days a week, serving British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal brasserie setting. Location in The Mailbox, the city’s number one shopping destination, the restaurant is open for lunch, dinner and their famous weekend brunch.

Seasonality is key to the bespoke Tom Aikens menu, with blackboard specials and rich creations like slow-cooked pork belly with crushed root vegetables, honey parsnips and a pork and apple sauce, or poached monkfish with escabeche, saffron sauce and a herb crust. From the grill come juicy burgers and steaks served with triple-cooked chips, whilst Tom's Kitchen desserts include chocolate and peanut butter fondant with vanilla ice cream.

Brunch at Tom’s Kitchen features gourmet twists, with signature dishes including seasonal berry pancakes, truffle eggs Benedict or Tom’s full English. A varied kids’ menu is also on offer, served at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

In addition to the restaurant, the bar welcomes diners from the restaurant, as well as guests wanting to drop in for an after-work beer or pre-dinner cocktail, offering a selection of craft beers, cocktails, and wines from around the world.

    Overall pleased with the set menu, but to call a dish bruschetta that was devoid of tomato,garlic and olive oil is pushing the credibility stakes.
    Plus when we ordered a beer and a bottle of wine no account was taken that we did Have two glasses preseco.
    Surly some adjust could have been made.

    There were two of us and one of us ordered a starter - mackerel. It was nice. We ordered the pea and orzo pasta and pollock for the main. Both were very nice but because i did not order a starter, the portion size was small. I was still hungry after i had eaten it. The taste was lovely. The waiter forgot to put in my order for a side dish so we waited a few minutes for this to come through. I also had a caraffe of wine and, although the menu did say how much i would get I was still surprised that the caraffe appeared to be about the same as i would get in a large glass.
    I also had a gin and tonic. There were no prices on the menu and the waiter was not sure about the difference between the different types of gin you serve.
    We both had a dessert. The pecan tart was not very tasty. The chocolate and peanut butter fondant was nice - but i could not taste the peanut butter. We spent just over £100 and were disappointed overall with the service and value. Unless you have a starter, the main on it's own is not enough to fill you up.

    Interesting menu, as described mostly modern takes on classic British dishes. Good food and generous portions.

    Atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing , we enjoyed our chosen meal which was well presented and very filling and good friendly customer service. Thanks for the birthday card and the glass of projector.

    My main memory is of the piped music being to loud, it did not seem to bother other diners, so we suffered in silence. The food was 'alright ' and well presented, I found the pea and ham soup the most enjoyable. My wife found the Bruschetta tough going she had broken her wrist 2 months ago but even the waiter had difficulty in cutting it for her with a steak knife! It is best described as adequate for what we paid,there was a mistake on the bill, an item added we did not have it was corrected when pointed out but we have had better meals for less elsewhere and I don't think we will dine there again.

    We arrived 10 mins late, and were told that we only have our table for a specific time ( usually restaurants call me in advance to tell me this ).
    Normally this isn't a problem although we did order a dish which takes 20 mins to prepare, so we skipped deserts.
    It took the waitress 2 return journeys to the kitchen to simply warrant a swap of mash potatoes to something different... really?
    My husbands fish pie was returned to the kitchen because it was more like a dry potato pie. He didn't opt for another dish, as by the time somebody had asked him about his meal, we had all finished our dinner.
    The staff lacked any kind of enthusiasm and we walked out of the restaurant completely unnoticed by your staff.
    We eat out a lot in Birmingham and I have to say, sadly that the food was very average to poor and mainly you need to train your staff to be a little more 'into' their jobs.

    Food was amazing but portions were too small. You have to order a side to get a whole meal
