Food and Drink at the NEC

Delicious decisions

Whether it’s room sizes, space layout or parking, we’ve always been big on choice at the NEC. So when it comes to wining and dining, we naturally wanted to ensure a range of lip-smacking options was always on the menu. That’s why we have a team of chefs preparing delicious hot meals, tasty deli sandwiches, tempting salads and homemade cakes in our in-hall restaurants across the venue to make sure we have something for everyone. Whichever dish you choose; it’ll be served up by the talented team at our in-house catering division Amadeus. With over 40 years of experience under their aprons and 625+ awards in the trophy cabinet, no one brings more to the table.

In addition to our in hall restaurants, we’ve teamed up with a host of other culinary brands, including Starbucks, Subway, Wetherspoon's, The Cornish Bakery, FCB espresso bar to ensure you’ll never go hungry during your visit.

Please note that our restaurants and grab and go outlets open around the show timetable and may not be available at all times. Please check with the event you are attending or contact the Amadeus team on 0121 780 4141.

This year, we’ve introduced our brand new in-hall restaurant experience, The Edge, which you’ll find if you are attending a show in Halls 1, 3 and 4 at the side of the hall.

Our thinking was simple, one restaurant offering four deliciously different styles of food. So, what will you choose? A freshly prepared deli sandwich or unashamedly decadent homemade cake on the go from Made? A hearty and heartfelt homemade meal from the Oak Kitchen? If you’re up for a meaty challenge, few have tamed the ‘Beast’ burger at the Butcher and Grill. Or perhaps it’ll be the stone baked pizzas at our new Italian restaurant EvViva that will have you returning for seconds.

With new vibrant dining areas, refined choices and wholesome goodness you will be able to meet, eat and treat at the Edge.
