The Moseley Igloos – A Unique Dining Experience at Glenelg

Leave the outside world behind as you step into your own private dining retreat near the sea at The Moseley Igloos. These cosy igloos are beautifully adorned with fairy lights and comfortable furniture and you’ll soon feel right at home as you relax on the couch, listening to your own playlist and watching the flickering of a faux fireplace and faux candles.

There are two glimmering Moseley Igloos just outside The Moseley Bar & Kitchen in Moseley Square and they can accommodate up to 8 people each. With each Igloo session lasting up to 2.5 hours, there’s no need to rush. Simply settle back into your temporary abode, peruse the menu and relax and enjoy quality time with family or friends while being looked after by your own personal waiter. 

For such a cosy space, the igloos feel quite roomy and teens will be keen to make a beeline for the comfy couch which would also be great for smaller kids – just bring a couple of books and some toys to keep them entertained.  And speaking of comfy, the dining chairs are draped in faux sheepskins, so comfy.


The drinks menu is quite impressive and we’d recommend you check out the Igloo Exclusive Cocktails. We opted for the intriguing Winterberry Martini. It looked and tasted divine with its smoky dome and delicate flavours!  For those wishing to enjoy a lovely drink without alcohol, you can head straight for a flavoured mocktail, or grab a juice or soft drink. All of the drinks were so delicious. The Hibiscus Punch was fantastic!

This year, we opted a selection from the a la carte menu and the food was absolutely fantastic, cooked to perfection and very flavoursome.  We chose the Korean Fried Chicken Wings and Prawn Skewers, the House Made Vegan Gnocchi, Garlic & Chilli Fried Squid, Crab Pappardelle and Beef Fillet Medallions and all the dishes were sensational. Chip connoisseurs will also be pleased to know that the chips were perfectly cooked and flavoured. 

The desserts on the menu also looked fabulous but we were so well fed, we couldn’t fit them in!


There are a variety of menu options to suit all tastes and dietary requirements and the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. 

In 2024, the menu offerings include a 3 course set menu, a Feed Me menu and Shared Mains.

 You can also choose to order à la carte from the  menu inside which features classic dishes like fish and chips, burgers, pizza, steak, chicken schnitty, and salads. There is also a kid’s menu with all the usual offerings like nuggets, fish, burgers, pizza and chicken schnitzel. There are also gluten-free and vegetarian options and you can also advise staff of any other dietary requirements.

What we love:

What we loved about dining in the Igloo was the ability to pop our own music on and chill out in our own space with our favourite people and some great food and drink.

We think The Moseley Igloos offer a great dining option for families with teens but also those with younger children as there’s a little bit of wiggle room for kids in the igloo with a couch (the igloo was set up for 4 people on this occasion). Bring a book and a couple of toys and they could easily play on the couch while you enjoy your first drink! If you’re booking for 8 people, please check with staff about the furniture configuration, particularly if you have young children. 

The other thing that’s great about the Igloos is that you can hear each other speak! No fighting over “too loud” music, clanking chairs and noisy conversation. For people who prefer a bit of quiet, this looks like a good option. 

An evening or lunch at The Moseley Igloos would be a perfect for a catch up with your girlfriends.
