Contemporary, stylish and distinctive, The Horseshoe Bar and Restaurant offers great drink, food and entertainment in a contemporary and comfortable setting.
I was lucky to win a recent Twitter competition & the prize included a meal for 4 at The Horseshoe Bar & Restaurant, Stratford Road, Birmingham.
The Horseshoe Bar and Restaurant offers Excellent North Indian & Modern British Cuisine. Its Contemporary, stylish and distinctive.
Last night we headed off for our meal, we have previously eaten there twice before & have never been disappointed. Last night they totally excelled themselves.
All the staff were great & full of recommendations & giving us plenty of insights to what each meal consisted of. They just couldn’t do enough for us. We even got to meet the chef. The food was totally outstanding & you can see exactly what we ate below.
We kicked it off with popadoms, which were unusually in cone shapes & a little more like tortillas, with a lovely salad in the centre of the plate & a spicy dip.
