“Fun place or drinks after work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Met up with work colleagues for some food and drinks after work. Ordered various plates some as spare ribs, chicken wings etc and a few plates of chips between us - wow their portions are very generous and we had more than enough food for us and some of our party that were joining us late. There is a very good and wide selection of drinks available, from draught beer, bottled beers and very good range of spirits

“and a good time was had by all!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

It was a meeting of colleagues who are also friends from around the West Midlands; this Bar is very handy for the travel network. A variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks were available at reasonable prices for the city centre, the ales were well kept and hit the spot - hic burp! Tasty bar snacks and meals served the taste buds well, while not mugging the pocket. Food was well approved by friends who are gluten intolerant and vegetarian. Live music on a Friday night adds to the atmosphere and for this hot weather there is a comfortable outside area. This was my first visit, but it was agreed that this will be the new venue for future after work drinkees.

“Home Cooked Perfectness on a Plate !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Myself & my partner had a groupon voucher for a Sunday lunch deal !!! Absolutely delicious beyond belief & friendly service, we both agreed that we would come back and gladly pay full price £7.95 for their Sunday lunch. We both had the roast lamb dinner, everything was Home Cooked, the mash & roast potatoes, the vegetables, the Yorkshire pudding & the gravy which was served in individual gravy pots and the beautiful carved lamb melted in your mouth !! Honestly folks you won't be dissapointed, well worth a visit, we shall definitely be going back !!!! Enjoy !!!
