I used to go there quite often, they play really cool music and the drinks are great. As I lived near by, but was still a tourist, I enjoyed the service and the staff is quite friendly. Really Happy I got to visit that place, and I miss it a lot.

With my trusty Rock/Metal music companion,we journeyed from Nottingham as Scruffys has always been a fave place to go for Rock/Metal music on a Saturday night..sadly the place has gone to pot,a useless/clueless dj,a pool table now taking up the space of the "dance" floor,zero atmosphere,full of non Rock herberts-Hipsters/students/oiks etc-a real shame....

Whether by yourself or with friends there is always a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Virtually every visit I have made new friends. Bar staff are sound. Music is great. If you like rock/metal music you must visit.

This is the only place we go to when we are in Birmingham. We've tried a couple of other bars/pubs but none come close to Scruffys! It can be an education in music as it's not always to our taste, but it doesn't matter...it's all rock music, all the time, and you can't beat that!

It's been a very very long time since I went here but I'll review it based on the last time some years ago. This used to be my local as a youngster, but back when it was the pen and wig, when it closed down it was a huge loss to the Birmingham rock scene, but scruffies was an ok... More

Only been once before a manowar gig years ago. Atmosphere was grand. Good to know that there are still a few good rock pubs out there.
