Café Rouge will be unveiling a beautifully redesigned bistro in Solihull High Street on May 29th … and a brand new menu as well. 


Café Rouges signature brand of relaxed, authentic French dining coupled with down-to- earth, friendly service make Solihull’s local bistro the perfect place for business breakfasts, impromptu lunches, special occasion dinners and everything in between.


The restaurant, housed in a charming, listed building, has been given a very special make over, one which marries the restaurant’s French, cosmopolitan spirit with one of Solihull’s best loved attractions – the National Motorcycle Museum – putting a whole new spin on Va Va Voom! 

A feature wall will be filled with glamourous, vintage motorbike imagery – a romantic take on one Solihull’s most famous connections. Plus motorcycle helmet wall lights will provide another playful nod to the town’s heritage. 


However, the restaurant’s famous warm and welcoming atmosphere - complete with stonefireplaces and quirky original features - will all remain. 

All shall be revealed on May 29th!


As well as the new look, the bistro is pleased to present a brand new menu, featuring the most authentic and classic dishes yet. Executive Chef Duncan McEwan has explored 25 years of Café Rouge menus and French cuisine – from their debut offering in 1989 right through to current French food trends. The selection even includes a rather special appearance from one of France’s most famous culinary exports – the snail - with Ragoût DEscargots a new, must-try dish!  

The sensational new-look restaurant will be open from breakfast (think Eggs Benedict, Warm Baked Chouquettes and Truffled mushrooms on toast!) through lunches (including Menu Rapide – perfect for business meets) to dinner or just after work drinks (perhaps over a ‘Plateau a Parteger’).


To complement their new menu, Café Rouge has also collaborated closely with Bibendum, who are dedicated to supplying the finest wines from across the world. Together they have introduced an outstanding wine list featuring a selection of terrific wines that offer great quality and value, including De Castellane Champagne, Alsace Pinot Gris from Jean Biecher and Crozes Hermitage from Paul Jaboulet.


The Solihull General Manager, Mark Chapman said, “Customers can expect a unique new look and feel at the restaurant. It’s a really refreshing, attractive new design, but one which complements the building’s heritage perfectly. We’re really excited to unveil the new menu too – this is authentic French food at it’s best, now to be enjoyed in the perfect stylish setting. We look forward to saying Bienvenue to Solihull!”
