About
B:Eats, a daytime and evening eatery created by BMusic, the music charity responsible for Symphony Hall and Town Hall. Serving food and drink in the heart of Birmingham from inside the transformed spaces at Symphony Hall, B:Eats will be offering both a daytime and evening menu to run alongside music events. The daytime food features all day breakfast, brunch, lunch and sarnie offerings including the B:Eats Brummie Breakfast and the Just As Big Vegan Brekkie. Eggs Benedict. Our house special is the Brummie Bacon Cake - the exact history of this savoury cake is somewhat mysterious, mentioned as far back as 1920s in newspaper reports and known anecdotally since the 1860s. They have 2 special ingredients - Worcestershire Sauce and Tomato Ketchup. These unusual additions stray far from a traditional savoury scone but are known to enhance the flavours of the cheese and bacon remarkably well. Head Chef Lee's has adapted his Grandad's own recipe of this local delicacy.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The café made a great option for lunch out of office being well located for me. I opted for the meatball flatbread which turned out to be a good choice - a generous serving of tasty meatballs, a rich Ragu with red onion garnish all served on a fresh soft flatbread - delicious! My colleague's sandwich was equally large, they had the second half wrapped to take away. Both came with a side of fries. Good food, reasonably priced and friendly staff - will be back!

Working nearby I visited this restaurant for lunch what a great new discovery! The service was friendly and efficient, the portions were very generous and I enjoyed the views across Centenary Square. I can recommend the Vegan Gatsby and the lamb tagine- full of flavour and cooked perfectly. A gem of a place and not just for concert goers, I will definitely be going back to sample more of the menu.

We visited B:Eats at Symphony Hall, Birmingham for a light lunch. I had an absolutely superb lamb tagine with couscous. My daughter had "the codfather" - a superb sub with cod fillets, tartare sauce and salad and our 22 month old granddaughter had a kids' sausage, chips and beans. We had a couple of pints of Lawless lager with our lunch. Absolutely lovely and very friendly staff on hand to serve. What a lovely lunch experience! We will be back. Thank you to everyone at B:Eats.

My husband and I attended B:Eats on April 30th 2023 prior to an afternoon concert in Symphony Hall. We had an hour to eat a light lunch. The ordering process was very slow and complicated. We ordered two ham sandwiches, a cappuccino and a cup of tea. Our four sandwiches included two full very thick outside crusts of the loaf which had been buttered to conceal the hard outside. The salad leaves were very tired and limp and the tea had no milk. We would have sent the sandwiches back but by this time it was too late to wait for and then eat replacements before the concert was due to start. We combined the ham with the two inside slices of bread and made do with one sandwich each. We will eat elsewhere next time we come to Symphony Hall which is a pity because B:Eats is very convenient. Our experience, however, did not spoil a wonderful concert.

Thank you for your feedback - so sorry to hear that your experience failed to meet your expectations. For CBSO performances, because B:Eats is so busy, we ask guests to order at the bar and food is then delivered to your numbered table - there are signs advising this is the case and these instructions are also detailed on the menus. For our sandwiches we use freshly baked bloomer bread, there would have been mustard on the bread (but no butter) - we welcome feedback, whilst I understand you had only 1 hour to consume your lunch - please do raise any concerns with our team at the time so that they can be addressed immediately. Thank you

I ordered a risotto as a pre concert dinner. This was disappointing, it was too small (it would have been ok as a starter) and the presentation was poor. It was served in a tiny dish and had a bit of salad chucked on top. It's a nice place for a meal but the food is disappointing.

This is a great place. A chilled and relaxed atmosphere with great ambient music. The food is fantastic. I had the Hunters chicken, it comes with corn on the cob, brummie bacon cake and fries. Portion sizes are very good, if you are hungry you will leave full. The staff were tremendous, attentive without being overbearing. Have visited a number of times now and will definately be returning in the future.

Stopped in here for a quick meal before heading off for a walk along the canal. We had the shrimp tacos and eggs florentine . The food was delicious - three generous tacos with guacamole, salsa and sour cream and a generous portion of perfect fries. The Eggs Florentine was really good. One of the great culinary disappointments in life (for me at least) is to order Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine and find yourself presented with a plate containing the expected muffin, eggs and ham or smoked salmon and approximately three thimblefuls of Hollandaise sauce. Thankfully this Eggs Florentine had a generous covering of silky hollandaise enhanced by the addition of smoked paprika. Delicious. Prices were very reasonable and we will be back.

Fresh, local food ?! The ‘soup’ was made with frozen mixed vegetables and tough inedible chunks of beef. ‘Butter’ with the bread was some type of low fat spread. A poor show all round.

Food decent but variable quality eg fish and chips very good but peas totally tasteless. If you come in cold weather try to sit as far away from the door as it’s possible as it constantly opens with people coming into the hall and each time you get a blast of cold air. Terrible design.

I work in the building and B:Eats is always such a treat to visit on a lunch break! Portions sizes are extremely generous (feeds me for 2 lunches), amazing vegan options and super quick & friendly service. I recommend the new Vegan Meatball Sub - heavenly. Very central and easy to access, it's a must go!

A nice environment for a drink and a bite. The menu is limited but the food is good. Its a good spot to wait out for your performance at the Symphony Hall. More choice in Brindley place but on a cold wet April evening it was perfect

Visited for a lunch before a matinee concert. Absolutely rammed, horribly noisy and majority of tables suitable for eating at already reserved. No indication in the website that would be recommended to do! Very poor location signage in the main building and re ordering system within the restaurant. Many staff seemingly standing around chatting and very few taking orders while queue built up. Food was ok at best and certainly nothing special. I’d suggest arriving earlier for any event and using one of the many restaurants at adjacent Brindleyplace instead.
