New Pizzeria Coming to Edgbaston This Autumn

Smoke + Ash Edgbaston

A brand new pizzeria and bar will open in the heart of Edgbaston this Autumn.

Smoke + Ash is due to launch in November. The owner’s Paul and Clare Collins are thrilled to join the ever-growing Edgbaston hospitality scene.

They are serving up Neapolitan-style pizzas, quality wines and seasonal twists on classic cocktails in a classy but comfortable setting. Smoke + Ash will provide a relaxed day-to-evening venue for you to meet your friends and family in one of Birmingham’s most popular suburbs.

Paul and Clare have moved away from corporate life to pursue their dreams of running a restaurant focused on top-quality ingredients and drinks range.

“After spending several years living in Bristol we knew what a great independent pizzeria could look like and this inspired us to add to the small but growing scene in Birmingham” says Paul.

Smoke + Ash will focus on great quality ingredients and equally good quality drinks offering including innovative cocktails.

The name stems from the couple’s interest in cooking and production styles and their influence on flavour, as well as the obvious hub of the business at the pizza oven.

Another important strand for Smoke + Ash is the community, explains Paul.

“We want to support local charities and particularly children in Birmingham living with the very real trauma of food poverty. We aim to help build upon the good work other independents have been doing in Stirchley and Digbeth – the recent Commonwealth Games showed just how good this city can be when we work together and utilise that unique ‘Brummie’ way of doing things,” he says.

Smoke + Ash is due to open at Greenfield Crescent in early November and joins popular venues including Loki and Chapter.
