The Junction

Brimming with character and a super friendly staff, The Junction is coming in hot with a killer food offering. Tuck into classic Sunday roasts, complete with slow-cooked pork belly or for something a little different such as Korean-style friend chicken.

One Trick Pony Club

10 user reviews 5

Located in Moseley Village is one of the cosiest pubs, One Trick Pony. Their grub features a variety of comfort eats and vegan alternatives such as their vegan fried chicken burger, messy nachos and delicious pizzas. In addition, you can nab two sides for £4.50 if you're still peckish.

The Old Joint Stock Theatre doesn't just offer the best pub food in Birmingham city centre, it also acts as your pre-meal to many of the amazing performances that take place within. Not only are there are plays and live music to get stuck into, the Victorian building plays host to dinner events as well.

The Bartons Arms

1 user review 5

Unlike any other pub lunch you've had before, The Barton Arms promise some of the most exotic grub in the city. A unique and unusual menu to be found in such a classic, Edwardian pub, their express Thai lunch boasts a starter and main for £10.95, oh and some of the best real ale.

The Plough

6 user reviews 4

Hands down one of the best gastro pubs in Birmingham, The Plough is a true purveyor of the fine art of lunching, thanks to their cracking selection of dishes. From traditional roast dinners to hearty beef burgers that any good American diner would be envious of, the venue is high up on our lists.

The Hare & Hounds

4 user reviews 5

Did you know that this pub-cum-music venue in Birmingham has a tasty surprise up its sleeve? While The Hare and Hounds does promise a great selection of fresh brewed beer, it also promises a cracking menu of triple-decker sandwiches and loaded jacket potatoes. All less than a tenner.
