user reviews of the Bulls Head, Moseley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Still no real ale and medicore lager is massively overpriced. Also the place is filthy, I played a gig recently and stuck to the floor in the dressing room (which doubled up as a kitchen and I also stuck to the stage!!!

Really more of a music club than a pub, no real ale (uniquely around Moseley Village) and the Krusovice lager was GBP4.50 a pint (ouch).
Run by the same people as the excellent Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath but not at the same level in my view. No real ale situation is because they don't have room for barrels down below.

It's not the same since the Irish chap (Mick, is it?) has left... Nice fellow, and a good barman, always had time for a chat.. Good beer, but maybe they just want to attract people who come specifically for music events, rather than passing drinkers.. Never seen much trouble there though, would much rather pay the extra 20-30p and drink in comfort, away from The Junction and Wetherspoons......

Interesting building externally, right in the middle of Moseley.

Seems to only open in the evening: certainly looked closed at lunchtime on a sunday (though cleaning staff were visible through the windows). Posters advertising musical performances suggests this is more of a music club than a pub in the conventional sense, but, given proximity of decent pubs in the immediate vicinity (Elizabeth of York, Fighting Cocks, Prince of Wales), nobody need feel deprived.

Top Notch... Great Staff and little club bit upstairs at the weekend. New food is great. Week night or weekend this place has atmosphere and attracts the real people of Moseley not the pouting wannabee's and look at me I'm so boho chic toss pots of the fighting cocks ... The manager is a top chap.

s'alright. Hasn't really worked its balance between a 'traditional dim-lighted boozer' or an 'indie nightpub' - especially as both of those ideas seem a bit contrived. It's easy to get bored of Theakstons too. Very friendly staff mind, and being right opposite the Number 1 bus stop works in its favour too.

its like drinking in a sardine can. bouncers are needlessly confrontational. Downstairs music is very much navel-gazing self-indulgence tat trying to sell itself as 'cool'. Poorly trained staff means that at even medium-full, it will take you an age to get served. Seem to employed more for their look than for their competency to pull a pint, one staff member didn't know what a 'whiskey mac' was. Beer is good though.

Upstairs is very much a hit-and-miss affair but to be fair that is because they want to cater to as broad a musical spectrum as possible. Some of the indie nights are quality.

Ok bar...but they need to get the basics right.

Pub choice of the Chinless Wonder, the Empty Suit and the Weekend Warrior. Would rather give my money to Simon Cowell.

I saw a couple of bag ladies have a fight in here a few years back, pulling each others hair and scratching while everyone just sat there and watched.

Think they've done it up since then. Shame.

Always had a good guiness on my few visits. Will make the effort one day to see a band here

Can't take to this place, probably from an experience a couple of years ago when it was full of cocks. Nice enough refurb but maybe my face didn't fit

Recentley re-furbished, with a great proper PA upstairs capable of supporting full bands. There's many a great night to be had down here, with something on upstairs most nights. Jerry Loves Jazz, Bizzarre and Bohemian Jukebox amongst others. In the day it's a comfy place to get a drink or to meet up with friends. People who fit the description of 'Shoreditch wanabees', and 'Nathan Barleys' now go elsewhere. (See 'The Cross' and 'Drift'.)

Think of Shoreditch wannabees. Overpriced and full of Nathan Barleys

Although the music policy is usually loud and beaty, on Thursday nights there's an acoustic night upstairs called Bohemian Jukebox. It knocks the spots off any other night like it. Great songwriters and bands, and Sebor Absinth is only �1 for the first shot! There's a Birmingham signed songwriter called Ben Calvert who plays it alot. I think he's destined for the big time!

Revamped a couple of years ago from a smelly tramps den of urine and ash into a fine looking modern bar. Beer too expensive, not enough seating, everyone a little too cool for school, music has a tendency to venture into self indulgant nonsense, clicks & beeps industrial night... :/ still preferable to the cross bar.

Very busy of a week-end. Bar staff's arrogance and demeanour would indicate that this a recreational hobby for them. The above comments attest to the calibre of the clientele. Are you phresh or deadly? If not, avoid.

Trendy and modern with a cool menu. The people of moseley gather here before going out on the town or to just chill there cool place!

A part for the lame decoration, this is a wicked pub! Every monday there's a reggae and dub night run by the mighty Jam Jah crew, and its deadly!

Recently done out in operating-theatre-style white tiles, a very pleasant bar with nice staff and good prices. Quiet in the day, nice for a coffee/soda in the sun, and livelier at night with regular DJs and Electronica nights.
