Who we are, who we work with, and who you can find on site at the Roundhouse

The Roundhouse is a pioneering partnership between the Canal & River Trust and the National Trust to bring an important Birmingham landmark back to life through an innovative blend of heritage and lettings. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund we have been able to ensure its future and inspire people to care about and help us to protect the heritage of Birmingham.

Jonathans in the Roundhouse

The original and famous Jonathans Restaurant was established near Lightwoods House in October 1977 and was to many, celebrities and discerning diners alike, their favourite restaurant.

Jonathans in the Roundhouse has graciously received permission to prefix the name Jonathans from Mr. Jonathan Baker and we aim to continue in the tradition of Jonathans by delivering unique and masterfully created Great British dishes for our customers to savour. 

Opening August 2021.
