A new restaurant has opened in Sutton Coldfield and it is hard to miss it at day or night.
With bright pink livery, Mutiny Loft, at the site of the former Bollywood Balti/Sangria Tapas eateries in Birmingham Road welcomed customers this week after its launch night last Thursday (August 12).
The new venue has a range of international ‘street food’, popular eat-out staples like burgers and pizzas, loaded fries and all day brunches, as well as the promise of a regularly rotating pop-up food offering in its outdoor space.
Mutiny Loft is the brainchild of Sutton Coldfield duo – Paul McMahon and Nathan Siekierski, from Four Oaks, both 45.
They are no strangers to the eating scene having a number of street food brands from Bad Dog – hot dogs and sides; Wanna Burger and El Chivato’s Mexican food. To Wild Ranch ribs and wings and Tabbou Lebanese food. And Hoko with ‘flavours of the north Pacific’, with a Wagamama-style Japanese offering from gyoza dumplings to katsu curries , rice bowls and hot broths.
So far the Sutton pair have been selling their food takeaway-only via Deliveroo in Birmingham, Redditch and Tooting in London.

But they have chosen their first bricks and mortar outlet in their home town, which will run by operations manager Bobby George who lives in nearby Tamworth.
The venue was officially opened by Sutton Coldfield’s MP, Andrew Mitchell who cut the ribbon on Thursday (August 12). Mr Mitchell said: “It is great to see another business open in the area and our local hospitality sector continue to grow.
“Mutiny offers a variety of international street food as well as a pop-up brand space which will change on a monthly basis.”
Co-owner Nathan Siekierski was pleased to get the Mutiny venue open and said: “The launch of Mutiny was an amazing success.
“The official opening was undertaken by Andrew Mitchell MP who himself appreciated the philosophical challenge of the venue, the atmosphere in the garden was phenomenal. The venue did exactly what it was meant to, which is stimulate minds as the food and drink stimulated the palate.
“A massive thanks to everyone who attended, the endless energy and enthusiasm of Paul McMahon and Bobby George along with Charlotte and Katie from easyMarketing without which this wouldn’t have been possible.”
He had previously said: “The whole emphasis is for people to feel like it is their space and a break from the sanitised, over-regulated world which has crept up on all of us. It’s a little chaos in the everyday order of things”
Mutiny joins fellow recent Sutton town centre arrivals Otto pizza restaurant – right next door in the former Bodega site and The Rhodehouse live entertainment venue in the former Turmeric Jones site accessed in Holland Street.
