Midland Grill Room

Open from breakfast through to dinner, the Midland Grill Room Restaurant serves tasty contemporary British cuisine in elegant surroundings.

Our head chef's carefully thought-out menu offers an excellent selection of freshly-prepared dishes. Lunch and dinner menus change daily but expect the likes of pan-fried seabass with citrus mashed potatoes and pink roasted duck breast with chestnut potato cake. In the morning, a full English breakfast is available, along with a continental buffet.

If you have tickets for the theatre, you can take advantage of our Pre & Post Theatre Dining Package. Have your starter and main in the restaurant, go to watch the performance at the Alhambra or St George's and return for your dessert and coffee after the show.

Opening hours
Breakfast: 07:00 - 09:30
Dinner: 18:00 - 21:30

The Midland Foyer Bar is a warm and welcoming place to catch up with family, friends or business associates. In the colder months, it's wonderful to get cosy around the open fire.
