SquareMeal Review of Land

Bronze Award

Formerly known as 1847 Birmingham, this restaurant originally opened its doors back in 2013 and helped to bring vegetarian dining to the West Midlands. In 2019, the restaurant was bought by its head chef and sous chef – Tony Cridland and Adrian Luck respectively – who had been at the helm of the kitchen for four years.

Now that they have full ownership of the space and have renamed it Land, the pair continue to serve a plant-focused menu which showcases the versatility of vegetables. Diners can choose between a great value two- or three-course set menu (£22/28), or instead opt for the chef’s menu (£40), which comprises six courses along with the option of an additional wine pairing.

The menus at Land are constantly evolving, but dishes you might encounter on your visit include watermelon served with polenta, chilli and coriander, a ricotta dumpling with tomato basil and chard, or an Asian-influenced turnip cake with water spinach, sesame and XO sauce. 

To finish your meal on a sweet note, you can order the likes of a chocolate and orange torte or slow-roasted strawberries served with shortbread biscuits.

Although the restaurant describes itself as ‘plant-focused’, that doesn’t mean the menu is entirely vegan or vegetarian. Instead, the restaurant’s menu is mostly vegetarian, with a few dishes containing fish or meat (all of which are clearly labelled). However, both vegan and gluten-free dishes are available upon request.

Land’s dining room is an intimate, laid-back affair which features plain white walls and wooden accents, with a small coffee counter/bar found in the corner of the room. The restaurant also boasts a very handy location in the smart Great Western Arcade, which houses a range of independent retailers. It’s right behind House of Fraser, too, should you need refuelling after an afternoon browsing the shops.

My husband took me to Land on 2nd September as a treat and the whole experience was fantastic. The menu is so cleverly put together, we had 3 courses and all of the food was delicious. Service was 5*, I can't rate this place enough and look forward to our next visit. Land really deserves a Michelin Star!
