    The Restaurant

    Loco Lounge is neither near a railway station, nor is it particularly mad. It is however right on the High Street in the heart of Kings Heath, with a lovely terrace and lots of big windows that open right up at the front, just perfect for people watching. There’s even a little hidden heated terrace upstairs out the back. We serve a great range of food and drinks (including kids, gluten free and vegan menus) in this really relaxed, welcoming environment that really does feel a part of the local community. Crazy!
