They champion all forms of craft over three floors of its nineteenth-century building originally built as a jewellery workshop and lately playing host to a badge factory which they celebrate with its ever-growing wall of badges. As an independent free house, the focus is on local and regionally produced drinks, which you might not find elsewhere, and their kitchen changes regularly with diverse menus reflecting Birmingham’s culinary melting pot.
Drinks, Food, Events
“This is a cozy family-friendly pub that serves delicious food. I had the beef Sunday roast and it was beautiful. Its a relatively small place with a wood burner and there are board games that you can play (had a couple of rounds of scrabble). The staff is very friendly and attentive. It can get really busy in the evenings as they put on lots of little events and Sundays can get busy too cos the food is top-notch. Love coming to this place.” – Siobhan W.

“Reasonable prices and not too big a menu to choose from. As with anywhere that serves cocktails there can be a wait. Today we got free pizza bites. Seating is very flexible so you don’t feel guilty sitting on your own. Been a few times and not had a bad experience. Worth a visit if you have a few minutes of time to kill.” – Tanja H.
