The Oyster Club

April 2019 saw the opening of a new seafood focussed restaurant by Adam and Natasha Stokes, in the heart of Birmingham just a few hundred metres from Adam’s.

A casual and relaxed approach to dining. With an Oyster Bar, a menu focussing on Seafood and a stunning Wine List, pop in for a few Oysters after work, or celebrate a special occasion in the restaurant.

The Oyster Club is open Tuesday – Sunday from 12 noon for lunch, pre-theatre and dinner with some bookable tables.

Andy Hayler reviews Adam's

The décor is smart, the service was exceptional and the cooking was more two-star level than one as far as I am concerned, with some genuinely exciting dishes. I highly recommend it.
