Restaurant description

Mixing Victorian-vintage and quirky botanical style, The Lost & Found offers gourmet international cuisine with an eccentric twist. This stunning Grade II-listed, stone-carved setting is renowned for serving some of Birmingham’s best cocktails.

Alongside wholesome breakfasts, gourmet sharing platters and Hettie’s famous old-school puddings, The Lost & Found menu serves classic hearty flavours. Sample a succulent whole roast chicken with fat chips, warming fish pie filled with salmon, prawns and mussels, or meats served straight from the grill.

An extensive world wine list and smooth cask ales are served alongside a list of heady cocktail mixes at The Lost & Found in Birmingham. Enjoy clinking jam jars filled to the brim with unknown spirits and deliciously fresh ingredients, like the gin-based Victorian shrub, or a lip-smacking apple and pear cobbler.

An eclectic, fairy tale-style dining room is filled with chunky wooden furnishings, huge pin-striped armchairs and suspended terracotta plant pots filled with foliage. The Lost & Hound pub is a 5-minute walk from Birmingham New Street Rail Station.

    Saturday early evening meal for four. Great restaurant and bar. We arrived too early for food so went to the bar. Served very promptly by friendly barman. The receptionist found us to tell us the table was ready which was lovely as the place was already heaving. We were taken to our table and Charlie our waiter introduced himself and was very attentive, friendly and professional. Starters arrived very promptly ( still hot which was a bonus) and were delicious, as was the wine! Mains arrived promptly too. I'd ordered a medium sirloin which was tough. Five minute check back performed ( another plus point ) and I was offered another but would have to had to wait while others finished theirs so I politely declined the offer. Charlie returned a few minutes later to say it had been removed from the bill! Absolutely brilliant service! I'd asked for a quieter table as one of our party is quite hard of hearing but I think it's impossible here as the place is huge with high ceilings so accepted the several "pardon, what did you say? moments! Charlie was delightful and we all agreed that we'd definitely return and recommend to others. Thank you ??

    As soon as i informed the staff of our arrival he made aure we were well looked after. Our waiter made sure that we were informed of times that good would be served due to Christmas parties happening. We asked questions that were answered professionally and promptly. We ordered drinks and he gave us time to ponder over the menu, when we made our choice he came back our orders were taken, he constantly checked that we were fine and if we needed anything. Excellent choice of food to chose from on the menu, it will be fun to work out way through the menu on regular visits. The booking service was so simple even I managed it.

    Food was not good. Had duck scewers to start which we’re just ok. Followed by cod and triple cooked chips. The fish was nice, the triple cooked chips were awful, they were cold and fatty. Nice but pricey cocktails . Restaurant was very noisy, no good for conversation

    I booked a table for six people on Mothers Day and it was wonderful. I had with me my partner and his parents and my mom and brother. My mom was amazed at how lovely the place was. Our table reservation was tied around a sunflower which I thought that was a very cute touch. The service was amazing, we had a lovely server called Amy (with amazing purple hair) who took our drinks order as soon as we were settled. Drinks arrived promptly and we all ordered mains and no starters. We didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive and it all looked delicious and the portion sizes were quite generous apart from the burger my partner ordered that looked a bit flat, aside from its appearance he assured me it was very tasty and my mom was very happy with her fish and chips. We all skipped on desserts as we were so full and just had coffee instead. We had a fantastic Mothers day together, the food and service were both amazing and both mothers were very happy. We are looking at coming back again soon to have afternoon tea.
