New Gas Street eaterie provides best-of-the-best


A new Birmingham eaterie and bar focusing on the UK's best food and drink has opened in Gas Street.

The Pickled Piglet at 35 Gas Street is the brainchild of local chef Mark Rafferty and his wife Chrissy, who have run a string of gastro pubs including their own, The Kings Arms at Cleeve.

The Pickled Piglet serves brunch, share plates and British tapas-style food made from only the finest of UK products. Mark comments: "Any chef can dress a plate but great taste is a different matter. We want to bring the best-of-the-best to our tables.  Our meat is welfare-assured with the majority being free-range. Fish and vegetables are purchased from the Birmingham market on a daily basis".

The Pickled Piglet is open from 10am until late from Monday to Saturday.

"You can come in for coffee throughout the day, have lunch or come by after work for a drink and food," explains Mark "We want to make it somewhere that you feel you can drop in any time of day".

The building that The Pickled Piglet will occupy is part of Cube Real Estate's development in the area which also comprises the neighbouring 30,000-sq ft 22 Gas Street office scheme. Alastair Robertson-Dunn of Robertson Brown - who advised on the letting of 35 Gas Street - comments: "This area is becoming a real hub for creative businesses and the canal network adds to Gas Street's attraction. The Pickled Piglet will be an excellent addition to the area as it will provide great coffee, fine food and  a perfect place for a drink".
