You enter through a door that leads you downstairs to this cosy city centre bar. It's Friday afternoon and the place is buzzing, with just about room to stand. The service is prompt and efficient and the atmosphere engaging. Close to New Street station, it's...More

Just what every beer drinker seeks: a hidden, speakeasy, basement pub, which you’d only know was there if you knew it was there … Look for the red door next to Greggs on New Street, it’s far from obvious, and pretends to be an actual...More

I came here with some friends and as a newcomer to the bar I was completely patronised by the staff just for asking some questions. The owner was similarly patronising, but ruder... I even observed him drunkenly shouting at customers... The IPA was alright but...More
