“Small and perfectly formed, my favourite Birmingham pub”
Review of Post Office Vaults

Post Office Vaults
Ranked #6 of 134 Nightlife in Birmingham
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 July 2014

A small, cosy pub with all that you need in a proper pub, good beer, good service and the only background noise being that of conversation. By any standards the range of draught and bottled beers as well as ciders is impressive but even more so bearing in mind the size of the place, there is a very comprehensive bottled beer menu. The staff are knowlegable and helpful and sample glasses in front of the hand pumps give you an idea of the colour and style of the draught beers. The decor is as another reviewer has said basic but that for me adds to the atmosphere. Great place.

There are no windows. A single door is found as you walk along with shops o each hand from New Street station toward the town hall. The door is next to Greggs which is handy. This is a beer and bagged snacks place. There's a handy lower level door. This road funnels the drinker toward the main station doors. Tiny tumblers infront of each real ale pull display the colour and texture of the beer before you buy. Sit in a stone corner and imagine your foes failing to find you.

This was recommended to us but we didn't realise how good it would be. Decor is basic and a bit outdated but the selection of beers, ales etc is unbelievable. They have over 300 beers in their menu. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Well worth a visit.

Really like this placel Small, cellar-like bar, fantastic range of beers and ciders, most of which I had never heard of, and friendly knowledgeable staff.

Really nice atmosphere, and great mix of students/real ale types and couples/groups out for a night out
