Bacchus was the solitary remaining pub in Birmingham in the last 14 Good Beer Guides I'd yet to visit. So I put that right on Tuesday evening. It's an unusual Nicholsons pub situated in an arcade under a hotel. The décor is impressive. Sadly the beer range isn't - St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale & Tribute, Sharps Doom Bar, Hook Norton Lion, Brains Phonics, Purity Ubu & Kelburn Goldihops. Nothing we tried was any good. So we only stayed for a half. Worth trying once to see the interior though.

Just popped in for the decor, which is as stated by previous reviewers.
Service was painfully slow and when i asked about food, there was a 1hr wait.
The bar was nearly empty so i can't see where a 1hr wait came from.
Average beers on, Marston's Pedigree £3.20. Nicholsons pale and the dreaded Doomed bar. Worth a look.

In the Birmingham Mail top 10 bars in Birmingham to visit.

I simply cannot believe that I have not been here before.

Tucked down below a hotel/shopping arcade on New Street, its an oasis of fine decor - all in the roman style. Columns, water jugs, murals, paintings and so on.

An unexpected joy in the centre of BRM.

Beer was OK as well - say Korev Cornish Lager for the first time outside the South West.

Yup, worth going in just to admire the place. Personally didn`t have too much trouble getting served...helps if your a bit of a buildery type as the suits think they'll get mucky if they stand next to you! Prices not vastly expensive...better than the OJS looked ok and beers in good nick..must visit.

First time in here - you have to go just to look at the decor! It is grand; elegant; different; pastiche;genuine; arty-farty - whatever! It's a mix and is worth seeing. It is run by the Nicholson's chain so there was (or should have been) a good selection of ales. However some were not available and their serving policy is wierd to say the least. We stood at the bar waiting to get our drinks whilst staff watzed to and fro none of them serving! One girl appeared to be the only staff member "on duty". however a chap standing next to us got servied before us and when we complained to the young barman who had suddenly turned up he told us that where we were standing was not in his serving area so he served the next gut!! We waited and eventually got our beer. So it's a fascinating place which needs more staff (Saturday 6.30pm). Worth a look though.
