Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I have been here many times over the last few years. Was the first place we visited when pubs reopened after that lockdown nonsense and the last when they locked it all down again. This place has a great atmosphere, and a massive selection of...beers and lagers but the one thing we always come here for is the pizza. Quite simply they do the best pizza anywhere in Birmingham city centre. Thin beer dough crust, just the right amount of cheese and not too fatty or heavy.More

Beers are great but the staff are awful. I'd go Pure Craft instead. We were told the doormen would escort us out for noise during pool. Pathetic

Went in for a couple of pints pre-show. Lovely pub, classy decor, extensive choice for draught beers/ciders, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for more.

The ambience and beer is always outstanding. The staff are always polite and helpful. What I wish to praise in addition to this is the cleanliness of the whole place and the toilets. Wow.. they were immaculate and actually smelled.. well... Not like toilets. When...I mentioned it to the bar staff, I'm sure they thought I was taking... the Mickey. Absolutely not, it is a credit to the staff, establishment and the brewery.More

Great selection of beers and all well kept. The barman was knowledgable and really friendly. Pizzas were awesome! We ordered three hoping to take some home but ate the lot! Top tip - order The Brummie.

A really beautiful setting,set in an old bank. It is immaculate and the surfaces gleam. The food is fantastic, especially the pizzas which are superb and there’s a great choice! We always receive a warm and friendly welcome, particularly from Ian, One of my favourite...pubs in the City centre!More

Great venue! Pizzas were tasty and fresh with quality ingredients (sorry forgot the pictures, was too busy eating lol). Great atmosphere and service from the whole team and very helpful - nothing was too much even after thousands of my questions 😄

Charming venue! Popped back into my favourite pub in Birmingham over the weekend. The staff are always so friendly and really know their stuff! You can say what you usually like to drink, and they have about 10 suggestions! Or something completely new, you're at...their mercy! :) They are also constantly rotating beers, so its good to check on the untapped app what they have on the lines. The pizzas are amazing and to die for, they have this tiny kitchen in the back which is never quiet! We will be visiting soon :)More

We were part of a large party and had made a booking for 8.30pm. We said that some of us may would be a bit later, and were told that was fine, but that food should be ordered by 9pm. Most arrived just after 8.30pm...and ordered. They warned staff that we were on our way (with our elderly VIP guest) and were told that was fine. We arrived queued at the bar and were told we were too late for food as it was after 9pm. It was 9.01pm. There was no apology. The manager remained stony faced when we pointed out we'd been given the impression all would be ok and was completely unconcerned about the situation that left us in, trying to find an alternative for someone with mobility issues. They have lost my custom forever and I shall be advising everyone I know of their inflexible, uncaring, unapologetic attitude.More

Oh dear! I was intending to book this place for various big conference social events next year. Tonight was a toe in the water.....Having booked and been assured twice, by different members of our party, that food orders would be taken up til 9pm, we...were refused at 9.01pm. Technically, the staff were correct. Maybe you might now consider the £ tens of thousands you have lost from me and my colleagues ahead of 2024. And I will spread the word far and wide. Well done.More
