“F1-tastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Found out about the bar on "F1 In Pubs" and went to watch the Monaco GP. Was very impressed with the place generally, very clean, modern decor and the atmosphere was great. Plenty of seats and lots of screens meant no-one really struggled to watch.

Had some food too and whilst it wasn't outstanding I can't really fault it for pub food.

Would certainly watch a sporting event here again.

“Nice Hang Out Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

Been there quite a few times and always enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The service is fast and staff are nice and friendly. Nice place to hang out with friends on a weekend or with spouse or family on a weekday.

“Great bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times now, and always gravitate to the upstairs bar. Nice decor, and atmosphere and seems to be less crowded for some reason. But that had the advantage of getting served sooner! Good range of drinks, and always fun on the weekend nights either watching the football and rugby, or dancing the night away to the DJ. Definitely recommend it for drinks and dancing, but never tried the food so not rates that aspect.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

Visited with friends on a Saturday night for drinks and dancing.
We always prefer the bar upstairs as the booths are normally available and the DJ and dance floor is up there too.
Drinks are reasonable for central Birmingham and the music and atmosphere was very good.

Free to enter and we'll worth a stop on a night out

“Ok for what we needed...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

The food here is ok. It took a lot of messing about with staff though in order to get what we wanted. For example, mushrooms on the breakfast were £1.25 extra and I paid this. It came with one mushroom cut up. I complained and the staff were happy to bring me some more out. Toast was burnt and so again, they brought some more. We ate there for the evening meal too and this was again, ok. Tuna melt wasn't melted...Drinks are expensive and so is the food for what it is.
