Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham – Recess at Brindleyplace

Recess at Brindleyplace at the Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham

Recess, Birmingham offers a cosy and informal dining experience, right on the doorstep of the Hilton Garden Inn city centre hotel, located in the prestigious Brindley Place. For our residents and non-residents alike, we provide a welcome retreat after a hard day’s work (or shopping!) with a relaxing atmosphere and great food. Snuggle down on our comfy velvet booths, or opt for al fresco dining on our spacious terrace, the choice is yours.

And that’s what we’re about at Recess: choice. There’s something for everyone on our diverse a la carte menu of refined yet simple dishes. From good, old fashioned Beer Battered Fish and Hand Cut Chips, to Slow Cooked Belly of Pork, it’s true to say we do the basics really well. But that’s not all: we also have signature dishes, which hail from the new Hilton Garden Inn hotel brand. Our Mobley Beef Burger is stacked to excess with all-American burger ingredients, and our Mojo Marinated Chicken Breast Burger boasts a unique combination of spices which give the burger a fiery edge – an edge that won an inter-hotel competition to become the brand’s signature burger.


Next door, the lively Brindley Lounge bar features an extensive range of drinks, including a comprehensive wine list to complement every dish, and a whiskey selection that’s renowned throughout Birmingham. Add to this our selection of classic cocktails, using only the freshest ingredients and real, whole fruit, it’s clear that the Recess ethos resonates here too (2 -4 -1 on cocktails that is!). Ask any of our cheery bartenders, and we can recommend the perfect tipple for any occasion – or even create a bespoke drink just for you!

Not looking for dinner? We’re still for you! The finger sandwiches, hand-picked cake selection and freshly baked scones which populate out afternoon tea stands continue to attract people from all over Birmingham. In tandem with our timeless selection of Twining’s teas our Modern Afternoon Tea is the perfect treat for a romantic afternoon or girl’s day out. Or reserve the Recess for a private function; tailor your menu, design your drinks, customise our dining space – the choice remains with you!
