Victorian Hideaway To Undergo Charming Makeover

Victorian Hideaway To Undergo Charming Makeover

Birmingham’s home to mystical mixology and delectable dishes, The Lost & Found, will close its doors from 2nd January, relishing two months of pampering ordered by mythical ruler, Professor Hettie G. Watson.

Building on its former glory, housed in the Grade II listed building on Bennetts Hill, the decadent drinking den is set to be beautifully transformed, featuring a new mezzanine bar reached only via a spiral staircase to apothecary heaven, and a striking, raised feature pergola. The hidden bar will be getting a top-secret entrance makeover, whilst stunning design elements include antique mirrors, brass and steel detailing, and statement plant installations, staying true to Hettie G. Watson’s passion for all things botanical.

You can ensure you’re the one in the know by getting a head-start and enjoying desirable offers during the soft launch in February. Visit to reserve: 

  • 50% off bottomless brunch on Sunday 25th February
  • 50% off afternoon tea, lunch and dinner on Monday 26th February
  • 50% off lunch and dinner menu, as well as free cocktails in the bar on Tuesday 27th February   

Resident mixologists will be expertly shaking and stirring a selection of carefully crafted concoctions, mixed and muddled using only the freshest ingredients, homemade bitters and infused spirits. A two-part cocktail menu will remedy those feeling lost or found and for the less daring, an enticing list of premium spirits, craft beers and extensive wine range featuring new and old world favourites. Discerning drinkers will relish in Professor Hettie G. Watson’s signature serve, bursting with botanical notes: Martin Miller’s Gin, Briottet Liqueur de Pamplemousse Egg white, Rose water, Lavender syrup, lemon juice and sugar.

Food is taken just as seriously with a new menu full of flavour, made using seasonal produce, all cooked to perfection. Sensational starters will tease taste buds while mains take centre-stage with hero dishes such as chicken milanese and slow cooked beef ragu pappardelle. Those looking for a quick bite can opt for a hand-finished pizza made in the brand new pizza oven: keep it simple with marinated mozzarella or indulge in salami pepperoni with chorizo, ‘Nduja and mozzarella.  With weekends made for brunching, diners can enjoy the likes of Turkish eggs or brown butter pancakes, washed down with bottomless flutes of prosecco and Mimosas, or for a more leisurely afternoon, bite-size sandwiches and desserts with a selection of flowing tea.

Professor Hettie G. Watson will officially re-open the doors of The Lost & Found on Friday 2nd March, once again, welcoming Birmingham socialites to join her in unlocking the secrets of the city.
