Voted the ‘best place to live in England’ by The Sunday Times – beating the likes of Mayfair and Muswell Hill in London – this village and its restaurants certainly come with a reputation to live up to. In no particular order, we’ve whittled the vast array of restaurants in Moseley down to our favourite 10.

1. Tipu Sultan

Diner, Restaurant, Indian

Tipu Sultan, Birmingham
Tipu Sultan is more than just a restaurant. This special venue houses a beautifully arranged, open-kitchen dining hall on the ground floor, where they serve up their takes on authentic Indian dishes in a majestic setting, while upstairs, an entertainment space and banqueting suite for private events and meetings can be utilised.

2. Ponte Di Legno

Restaurant, Italian, Mediterranean, Seafood

Arguably one of Birmingham’s best Italian restaurants, Ponte Di Legno is a gem in Moseley’s dining scene. Just a short walk from Moseley high street, this family-run restaurant offers a varied menu of fresh, authentic Mediterranean food with seafood their speciality. It’s also bring your own booze, which is win-win!

3. Zindiya

Restaurant, Market, Indian

Indian street food is all the rage in Birmingham at the moment, but Zindiya can be proud to stake their claim as one of the city’s originators. This innovative restaurant combines an immersive Indian experience with a fun environment – think chai tea in vibrant teapots washing down the flavoursome food of Indian street markets, such as chaat and okra fries.

4. Carters of Moseley

Restaurant, British

Carters of Moseley, Birmingham
Carters of Moseley is an award-winning, Michelin-star restaurant in the heart of Moseley Village. Head chef Brad Carter and his team dish up their takes on the best British dishes, using local, seasonal ingredients. This may be fine dining but a local neighbourhood feel sets Carters head and shoulders above the rest.

5. Sabai Sabai

Restaurant, Thai

This intimate, homely restaurant is the best place for Thai cuisine in Birmingham – hands down. Sabai Sabai, who recently added a city centre branch to their Moseley and Harborne repertoire, have won award after award. And rightly so.

6. La Fibule

Cafe, Restaurant, Moroccan

Another of Moseley’s finest restaurants is the wonderful La Fibule, one of – admittedly – a small number of North African restaurants in Birmingham. Thankfully, this puts La Fibule in good stead for those looking to sample some Moroccan cuisine, and this eatery is reminiscent of authentic Moroccan cafes.

7. The Fighting Cocks

If a good old-fashioned neighbourhood pub is what you’re after, The Fighting Cocks should be right up your street. With classic British pub grub, great beer and live sport all on offer in this historic 1800s building, you’ll probably spend a lot more time here than you think.

8. Kababish

Restaurant, Indian

When a restaurant has hosted a number of famous names like Noel Gallagher and even Muhammad Ali, you know that it’s got to be good. Kababish is one of Moseley’s top curry houses and has been a mainstay in the city since 1983.

9. The Dark Horse

Bar, Pub, Restaurant, BBQ

Dark Horse Moseley

Renowned for their smokehouse BBQ, a visit to The Dark Horse should be on any meat-lover’s wishlist. Their briskets, ribs and chicken wings make this place worth visiting alone – but they also host live music and cater for parties and events.

10. The Village

Bar, Pub, Restaurant, Pub Grub

Dark Horse Moseley
The Village is a Victorian drinking and dining parlour with a menu that caters for all. This cosy pub features comfy sofas, a log burner, one of the best drinks selections in the village and hearty, traditional food. They also recently hosted a Harry-Potter-themed banquet, so keep an eye out for future themes of a similar nature.
