Bay Leaf at Home

When: Sunday 13th January, from 18:00
Where: Bay Leaf, Custard Factory, Digbeth
Free – Please RSVP (details below)

Unfortunately, the 12th January will see the Bay Leaf restaurant in the Custard Factory close its doors. Digbeth Residents Association would like to thank Bay Leaf for all their help and support.

However, if you’re anything like us and will seriously miss their delicious food, all is not lost… Owner of the Bay Leaf, Aftab Rehman, will be launching a new venture, Bay Leaf at Home, next weekend:

We are leaving the Custard Factory, but we are not leaving you.

As a valued customer we would like to invite you to exclusive and exciting launch of Bay Leaf at Home on the 13th January at 6pm. We will be closer to you by focussing on cooking classes, supper club, external catering and event management.

The evening will include live music, canapés and a buffet meal – you are welcome to make a donation towards the food – as well as an introduction to Bay Leaf at Home. We will also be auctioning some of the Bay Leaf’s artwork.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and custom over the last 18 months. We are more grateful for your continuous support for Bay Leaf at Home and further adventures in the future.

We do hope to see you at the launch.


If you would like to attend the launch of Bay Leaf at Home, please RSVP by email ( or phone (0121 224 7700) by the 11th January.

One Response to Bay Leaf at Home

    Very sorry for Aftab and his crew. Think this says a lot about Brum and Digbeth in particular. The Cafes in the Custard Factory and Fazeley Studios are very good and thrive during the day through use tenants and conference goers, but in the evenings and weekends the places are dead. Again this points to the fact that apart from the pubs there is very little to attract people to Digbeth or even the City Centre after the shops close, I don’t think there is a coffee shop in the City Centre open after 7.00pm.
    Even worse I went to MaC on the Thursday after Christmas at 7.00pm for a coffee to find it closed!!!!
    Our hold on the title of second city is tenuous, it may be true in terms of size of population, but in terms of an active intellectual and social life we are way down the pecking order. I was not surprised that in a recent BBC discussion on English Cities, Brum didn’t even warrant a mention!!
