About us

El Borracho de Oro is an independently owned Authentic Spanish Restaurant nestled in Edgbaston, a leafy city centre suburb of Birmingham.

"El B" as we fondly refer to it as, is owned by Emma Yufera-Ruiz, originally from Shropshire but with Spanish Family ties, Emma is passionate about Authentic, Fresh and delicious Spanish Food and can often be found at El B chatting to the customers and serving the tables.

Emma is supported by a fantastic team, dedicated to quality cooking and customer service. Head Chef is Pedro Bustillos from Madrid, he started with us in 2015 and has brought much of his style of cuisine to our menu, we adore his slow cooked meats, his delicate fish dishes and his clever use of Garlic and herbs.

The Front of House is Managed by Leo Mouzakitis who has worked with Emma since 2012 and is a passionate wine enthusiast - he loves to recommend different wines to our customers and has helped us create an extensive Wine menu with over 15 different wines available by the glass and Carafe.

The person who gets drunk on the fine wines and best liquors!


Our Restaurant can seat 2 -26 people on individual tables or private hire for up to 90 guests in a relaxed, but comfortable environment.

All of our menu is based upon the Tapas concept of sharing dishes with a regularly changing menu depending on the best ingredients we can buy from Birmingham Market or our Spanish suppliers. We can cater for all dietary requirements, however we do appreciate a little notice for those with serious allergies so that we can best accommodate their needs.

Tapas bar

This is a true Spanish Bar - that means no reservations! But we have built 14 meters of Bar space so there is plenty of room to find your space at the Bar and enjoy an ice-cold Mahou Beer from the tap or a glass of Cava whilst watching our chef prepare your tapas in our Bar kitchen in front of you. Our Tapas Bar opens all day through from Lunch time to late at night .

Authentic Ingredients

Much of our fresh fruit and Vegetables, as well as our fish and Meat are supplied by preferred suppliers at Birmingham Market and our valued butcher. However, we also import Cheeses, cured meats, Paprika, saffron and other ingredients directly from Spain.

Authenticity is very important to us and we hope that all our customers feel they are having a true Spanish experience when dining with us.
