Being a fellow member of the service industry, it’s nice to have a bar open even later than us that we can pop into for a quick drink after work.

What’s puzzling however is when the bar doesn’t close until 2, but at 1.20am I’m told that the bar is no longer serving because ‘we’re closing soon’

Pictures of the bar at this point in the evening follow, clearly no reason why I couldn’t have my after work drink besides the fact that the bar staff couldn’t be bothered to serve me. No sooner than they finished telling me they weren’t serving any more they all hid back of house so they couldn’t be questioned further.

I met with some friends here on a weeknight for something to eat and drinks after work. Its quite lively and younger crowd (I'm in my 30's) the place was ok, not really my scene but it was busy and lots of atmosphere and people seemed to be having fun. Would not be my personal first choice but have no problem/complaints with the venue.

I seem to always visit here when I'm Birmingham, it's fun and reasonably priced.
Lots of hen and stag do's going on.
Good music and clean enough for a night time venue.

A first for me.

Walked in and asked the lady clearing the tables if I could have a table for 1. No problem, sit anywhere.....

I took a seat at a table in the middle of the place, opposite the bar. Good menu, and I was going to go for the surf and turf option. So I waited, and waited, and waited. This was a Monday night in February at 9:00pm. It wasn't busy. Staff walked past me.

I won't try again.

Good evening, thanks for your review of our bar. There seems to have been some misunderstanding here, all food and drink is ordered at the bar, unless stated otherwise, for instance during certain events. The member of staff may have been unaware you were waiting as they are not used to operating a table service system. Apologies for this and we hope you visit again soon, any problems when you do, please just ask at the bar and they'll be happy to help.
