The Hive Café and Bakery
Located just a stone’s throw from the Rewired offices, The Hive Café and Bakery is a favourite amongst our team, especially for those after a tasty vegetarian lunch. With an ever-changing menu, you’re likely to find a healthy, organic and well-sourced dish that all goes towards a good cause, as the training café and bakery provides work experience to students at Ruskin Mill Trust’s Argent College.
A modern fine dining restaurant that prides itself on using sustainably-sourced ingredients to create simple but innovative dishes, Folium is open for lunch from Wednesday – Sunday from 12pm – 4pm. Expect small tasting dishes that pack a punch, and although you can check out the sample menus online prior to your booking, the menus change depending on the season so no two visits will ever be the same.
Tucked away off the beaten track on Pitsford Street, this contemporary pop-up tapas restaurant is not to be missed. Inspired by traditional Spanish and Portuguese cooking, choose from a variety of tasty Mediterranean dishes including Beer-braised Pork Cheek, Grilled Lemon Sardines and Stuffed Butternut Squash, all of which are made with 100% free-range and grass-fed meat, whilst other ingredients are locally sourced.
If you’re after a quick bite to eat in laidback surroundings, look no further than Saint Kitchen, the comfortable and quirky café in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. The perfect spot for remote working or grabbing a coffee with a friend, you can expect a delicious selection of sandwiches, salads and freshly-baked treats for a midday pick-me-up.
