A New Sparkle for the High Field

A sparkle for the High Field

Bursting back onto the social scene with a stunning fresh look, and new food and drink menu full of the good stuff to match, is The High Field in Edgbaston. Eat, drink and relax this spring as we take care of you.

Recently voted among the best 100 gastropubs in the country by Estrella Damm Gastropubs, our new decor is warm and vibrate, accentuating our best features. For warmer days, enjoy our new patio on the side terrace with plenty of spots to soak up some sunshine, and our garden is in full bloom. Sit back with a glass of something chilled and make the most of the season.

We opened the pub nine years ago, turning a classic Art Deco villa into a gorgeous gastropub, and it was time to give the pub a refreshing new look. We’ve stayed true to the fabric of the building and picked out feature walls and alcoves in the bar and eatery with deep plums, ochres and purples and pared back the flooring to the natural wood. We have repurposed and renewed furniture, giving chairs, sofas and soft furnishings a fresh touch with rich teal and olive velvets alongside elegant country scene fabrics, nature-inspired accessories and lots of leafy green plants. All adding up to a lovely, English country garden feel.

The private dining room has a similar feel, with olive green and terracotta shades creating a stylish setting for dinner parties and celebrations, and our events space The High Field Studio has also been given a lift with fresh colours and styling.

The new sparkle has brought an exciting new spring menu, championing seasonal and British produce- from Cornish lamb, spring greens and Devonshire crab to daily market fish and the very best English asparagus. Alongside our chef’s daily specials board, we’ve got your next outing covered whatever the occasion.

There’s exciting new arrivals on our drinks list too. From classic favourites to something a bit different. Sip on a Praline Martini, a velvety combination of Cotswolds cream liqueur, chocolate hazelnut, Martel V.S. Cognac and Ketel One vodka or the Banana Colada with Discarded Banana Rum made by infusing Caribbean rum with banana peel for a rich banoffee pie character, combined with Havana Club 7 Year Old Rum, pineapple and coconut. 

Enjoy our new wines on their own or paired with your favourite dish. Try the Sentidiño Rías Baixas Albariño that’s lively and delicious and a great match for seafood, or the Orange Natural Wine from the Recas Estate, Romania, a rich characterful drop that’s full of apricots and orange zest and something a little bit out of the ordinary.  

And the new sparkle for the High Field doesn’t stop there. We’ve launched a new breakfast menu full of the good stuff so you can start your day as you mean to go on. Meet colleagues for a working breakfast, refuel after a morning walk or drop in after the school run, we’ve got your morning covered.

Our new favourites include the three cheese croque madame with free-range ham, fried egg and Parmesan; spiced Lebanese beans with pomegranate, Greek yoghurt and toasted sourdough plus hand-picked Devonshire crab with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on a toasted English muffin.

We serve only the best quality free-range bacon and sausages from Jimmy Butler’s Blythburgh Farm, Clonakilty Black Pudding and artisan sourdough from Royal Warrant Holders the bread Factory.

Sunday Best still reigns supreme for us and each week there are three top-notch roasts to choose from. Tuck in to beef from Aubrey Allen, Jimmy Butler’s free-range pork and deliciously different vegetarian Wellington with scrumptious sides to match. Be sure to keep an eye on our specials board for our chef’s roast of the day.

Come and see us soon and experience our stunning new pub soon, whether it’s a quiet drink, Sunday lunch with the family or a special occasion dinner. You can even stay over in one of our luxurious rooms next door in The High Field Town House and make a weekend of it. See you soon!
