Food and drink

No matter where you are on campus you’re never far away from a snack, bite to eat or a refreshing drink.

Staying at the Vale Village? For a full sit-down dinner service, visit JC’s restaurant in Chamberlain tower. For a more laid-back option, grab a sandwich at The Melt or a slice of pizza in the evening from the Pizza Shack. Please check opening hours at reception, especially during summer vacation time.

Staying at Edgbaston Park Hotel or Lucas House Hotel? 1900 Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Edgbaston Park Hotel offers a range of lunches, afternoon teas and evening dining. Be sure to book your table! Alternatively, unwind over a drink at the bar, serving tea, coffee and a huge range of drinks, including a wide selection of gins and the hotel’s signature Pilsner, Old Joe.

On campus? You’ll find over 30 food and drink outlets on campus, including Starbucks in Muirhead Tower, Costa Coffee at Staff House and the Bramall, and a great fresh menu at Brook’s Sports Bar & Kitchen at Bournbrook Pavilion. There are plenty of takeaway options, and if you’d like to stock up for later in a small supermarket, try the Spar in University Centre or Costcutter at the Vale Village.

Outlets accept bank cards, but if you prefer to use cash you’ll find cashpoints at University Centre and at the Vale.
