Who we work with, and who is on site

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 enterprise. 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.

Tenant Opportunities

We have one remaining space available to join us here at the Roundhouse. For more information, please see our ‘tenant opportunities’ page.

Canal & River Trust

We’re the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of waterways, because we believe that life is better by water. Our research shows that spending time by water, whether it be your lunch break, daily commute or just a weekend stroll, really does make us feel happier and healthier. We’re working with volunteers and communities across England and Wales to transform canals and rivers into spaces where local people want to spend time and feel better. We know this will bring wellbeing opportunities to millions.

Moving in September 2021.

National Trust

The National Trust office in the Roundhouse offers bookable hot desking space for NT colleagues across the region and the wider Trust to come and work from this unique location. With key transport links from New Street, the self-serve office will act as a regional hub.

Moving in July 2021.
