  • Excellent shopping and entertainment centre. Plenty of designer and high end shops. Great variety. Lots of eateries to cater to all tastes. Cinema and easy access to canal leading to central city. Handy location.
  • Haven't visited for a few months, mainly because we tend to leave it too late to book a table. Important that you book early, even mid week. This time we managed to book a table in the bar which is more cosy than the restaurant upstairs. The food was amazing. Service was excellent. Still the best place to eat in Solihull. Excellent real ale and a good wine list
  • Excellent restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent surroundings. Excellent staff. Excellent idea for serving great food. Really what more can i say. We thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are thinking of going then just go. It's worth every minute of your time and so reasonably priced.
  • I've given the Mailbox 5 stars because of the variety it holds, there are many different types of eateries and places to drink. A lovely cinema is tucked away in the corner. You have the Cube at the far end. Excellent views of the Canal and the top class shops inside the building, (lots of browsing potential unless you have lots of money to spend). I would highly recommend this as a place to go with friends, family or just to show out of towners one of Birmingham City Centres excellent sites.
  • Looking for good food and luxury brand then this is perfect. BBC is here. With nandos you cannot miss. During summers you can chill here and soak in the sun.
