Thank you so much for your service last night in the private room upstairs. It was such a brilliant night! Thank you for letting us decorate the room and having our own music. The service was incredible, so attentive and accommodating to the late comers...too. Never had to ask for a drink, it all just flowed so well. We want to personally thank the main waiter for the room, having to run up and down the stairs and just brilliant confident service. The family all said how amazing he was, so thank you for making my 30th birthday so special! 16.10.2021More

Initially there seemed to be lots of staff attending our table, which was a little messy. However, all sorted and the food as usual was lovely and service great. Dogs allowed in certain areas of the restaurant, a real plus!! No hesitation in recommending this...restaurantMore

Such a great location,close to the city, yet nestled away form most of the traffic. The garden tables and tipi are lovely if your after a little alfresco dining. The food as ever is to die for with some of the best waiting staff I...have seen in years, a real treat to be served by them and a credit to the management team. There is a wonderful selection of ales and beers. I can’t recommend enough. Dog friendly if under control as it should be. The real treat for us is a quick chat with Lisa when she’s working. Love love love this place.More

Server was really pleasant and greeter organised glass of prosecco to celebrate my birthday. food choice good and servings plentiful even if I hadn't appreciated my main course of lamb came with buttered veg and ordered a side portion (unnecessary). This is third visit in...recent months and will certainly be back.More

Been here a few times. Always choose here when organising a meal as there is a private room to seat large groups of around 18-20 people. Food always good. Service is fine. Each time there is a little confusion when serving the courses. Amusing now....Atmosphere is great because it’s secluded away from the main dining areas. My two bits is on the parking. Street parking is free for 2hours but with a large group partying/celebrating, it is best to pay & display as time can often pass quickly. When you have a large party...offering to reimburse the parking would be a ‘nice’ gesture when seeing the total amount from drinks/food/gratuity at the end🤑More

Really nice gastro pub with excellent food. Nice decor. Extremely tentative staff. We were a group of 8 and everyone was very happy.

Didn’t book as it was Thursday evening, but was already busy at 7pm and we were lucky to get a table, which is always a good sign. Despite being busy the service was excellent, with staff asking if we needed anything at just the right...times. Food was all lovely (slightly disappointed they didn’t have the fish cake). The furnishings and ambience are lovely too. Even the toilets are nice! Will definitely return when I’m next in Birmingham. Will also probably have a family cell there after my daughter receives her doctorate from the university in December.More
