user reviews of the Drop Forge, Birmingham

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

Managed to get into the Drop Forge this time round. It's a rather unique pub interior. I wasn't overawed by the ale selection though. All were from the Marstons group - Oxford Gold, Hobgoblin & Help For Heroes. I plumped for a bottle of Finnbarra Irish cider. I savoured every £4.95 mouthful of it! The place seems focused on food. Not as good as I'd hoped.

A former manufacturing building which has been converted into a clean and tidy bar yet still retains a sense of its previous identity (especially the drop forge machinery behind a glass screen). I toyed with the idea of trying one of Marston's Revisionist beers from keg but in the end stuck with the real ale - handpulls on sale yesterday were Banks's Bitter, Wood's Shropshire Lass, Malvern Hills Brewery's Feel Good and Jennings Sneck Lifter. I tried the last two of these and both were very good so it made for a very pleasant hour's drinking whilst sitting on the leather Chesterfield. House white wine was the best we found in the JQ apparently.

Not a place for a beer in the evening I'm afraid. I've no idea of the opening hours of this pub. Google said it opened until 11pm on a Sunday, Whatpub said 7pm and their own Facebook site said 6pm. Their full website indicated that certain events take place until 4pm. But there were no specific times mentioned. We arrived shortly before 6pm and all was closed up. Particularly frustrating when you make a special journey here. 0/10 for now. Will try to visit again one day.
