There's something of a revolution going on at pubs in Birmingham, and it's not just craft beer making a new fangled appearance on their fridge shelves. Where pub grub used to be grease laden plates of pan stained chips, frozen burgers and re-heated roast dinners, Birmingham has adopted the UK's new take on an artisan come bistro approach to the grub of days gone by. Boasting some of the most unique pubs in the UK, Birmingham pub patrons have taken to upping the ante when it comes to the plates of food served alongside a hearty bevvie.
Pubs in Birmingham are no longer the venue to visit for a pint alone, oh no. Pub goers now revel in the fact that pubs have become a sit down and dine destination thanks to some name faces in the city ensuring that local produce and fanciful menu's take the main stage.
So, which of these pubs are leading that foodie revolution and leaving your mouths sweltering in enthusiastic food drool? Let's take The Church Inn for example. A cool and quirky pub in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, The Church Inn has a name face under their belts and filling their bellies. Cultivated by Soul Food Project's very own Carl Finn, The Church Inn boast a deep south dining experience with mini Creole beef pies, corn dogs, chicken manchago quesadilla's and blackened snapper baby just a petite selection of the meals that you'll find accompanying their international range of beer and wine.
But how about something a little more British? Found under the Bitters 'n' Twisted umbrella, The New Inn is a steak and ale house in Harborne that promise to stock meat purely from local award winning butchers and mould their dishes into carnivorous treats from their trio of Lashford sausages to cod lion wrapped in parma ham. Or perhaps The Plough is your destination thanks to their selection of decadent, classic dishes from their pastrami and swiss cheese bloomer to baked italian salsicce sausage that adds British flair on an Italian dish.
And whilst there are many more to add to that list, it's safe to say that we've been pretty successful in getting those taste buds on the go, right?
