A new steakhouse is poised to open on Colmore Row, a 7,000 sq ft space with room for 180 diners. Pasture, which has restaurants in Bristol and Cardiff, will open to the public on Monday, May 27 at the former Barclays Bank at Fifteen Colmore Row.

The restaurant will have the biggest glass-fronted dry-aging fridge in any UK restaurant as well as a 45-seater bar and an open kitchen for diners to see the 'theatrical' open-fire cooking. Chef owner Sam Elliott, 36, said he 'couldn't be prouder' of the restaurant.

The Birmingham branch is Pasture's largest to date. It will serve house cuts like chateaubriand, tomahawk and porterhouse priced from £9 per 100g as well as rump steak for £22.95, sirloin for £26.95, ribeye for £29.95 and fillet for £31.95. On-the-bone cote de boeuf will be priced at £42.

The restaurant's motto is 'Fire, Meat, Music' and resident DJs will be playing house music each weekend. The group has its own farm, Buttercliffe, near to its Bristol branch where fruit, vegetables and herbs are produced for use in its restaurants, which has contributed to its shortlisting in the National Restaurant Awards.

Chef owner Sam has plans to open a butchery, deli, cookery school and burger restaurant in Bristol later this year. For now, his focus is on the Birmingham restaurant, his largest yet.

He said: “We're absolutely thrilled to be opening the doors to Pasture Birmingham - our biggest restaurant to date. The team has put in an immense effort to get us here and I couldn't be prouder.

"Bookings have been brilliant, we're looking forward to a packed opening week, and we can't wait to welcome the people of Birmingham to experience what Pasture is all about."
