The Railway

Looking for a good old fashioned pub in Birmingham city centre? The Railway is but a stone's throw away from Birmingham New Street station and brimming with good old fashioned service.

A Cask Marque accredited pub in the heart of the city, The Railway ignores most flecks of modernity (other than necessary amenities of course) and sticks with traditional pub faring charm as mis-matched textures, classic chesterfield booths and neutral tones make up the body of this hearty pub. But something a little less usual in a traditional pub? The Railway serve a petite but classic menu of cocktails and shots for the more contemporary tipple taster. 

While some pubs in Birmingham may settle for a chilly ale here and a dash of ready salted crisps there, The Railway thought better of themselves by introducing a fresh bout of live music into their midst. Host to regular rock nights, metal gigs and acoustic soiree's, the sound of strings strumming is regularly heard through the doors of The Railway where a laid-back and mildly mature crowd come to settle down for the night be it for sound or sport.

This venue serves British food.

A word from the chef:
While The Railway may boast a selection of British classics, they dip their toes into international waters with dishes such as chicken katsu curry and BBQ ribs available on the menu. Grab one of their Mexican burgers or Swiss burgers from as little as £6.50 or an 8oz rump steak starting at just £7.

I'm no metal head but if I were this place would be great, considering it's normally a pretty quiet boozer they do have some pretty mad gigs going on
