As many of our regular diners may know, we’ve spent significant efforts in the past year on beginning to grow our own produce, as well as supporting local food and gardening campaigns. This year we have taken on additional growing space just two streets away from the restaurant with local community gardens — Edible Eastside — and I am currently working on a new community orchard and a landmark community allotment project in the city centre with both local and national public sector organisations. Good news for Birmingham but also good news for the restaurant and part of our three year goal of been able to supply the majority of fresh herbs, leaves and produce off the vine for the restaurant from within Birmingham.
To allow us more time to support the growth of our gardens, and involve all our staff in these projects, we will be amending our opening hours. As our gardens begin to come to life with Spring, we look forward to showing off some of our own produce across the menu and selected specials.
As of April 16th 2012 -- we will be revising our opening hours to:
Monday — 12pm – 22.00pm (last orders 8.45pm)
Tuesday & Wednesday — CLOSED
Thursday — 12pm – 22pm (last orders 8.45pm)
Friday & Saturday — 12pm – 22.30PM (last orders 9.00pm)
Sunday — 12pm – 4.30pm (last orders 3.30pm)
We will also use Tuesdays & Wednesdays to organise more events and dinner clubs — in addition to our book club, we will be launching an allotment & seed share club, meeting monthly and a programme of regular speakers on food and food related issues. Please e-mail us for more details.
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings will also be available to our customers for private dining should you wish to visit us as part of a larger group and enjoy exclusive use of the restaurant.
We are relaunching our Monday promotion — because sometimes who doesn’t need a perk to start the week? For advance bookings (24 hours minmimum please!) we will be offering buy one get one free on main courses. There will be a limited number of promotional dining places so please do book early to avoid disappointment.
I hope you will join with us in excitement for the next chapter at The Warehouse Cafe. I warmly welcome any feedback or input you might have on what we can do to be the best we can be. Thanks as ever for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
