Just six miles from Birmingham city Centre, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield has experienced an exciting recent growth in new places to eat, drink and socialise.  Our friend Fiona Pendleton, a resident of the Royal Town, has kindly written an extensive guide to some of the great bars and restaurants in the area.
