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

Further to previous posts, I've been in here once since it reinvented itself. Sadly, no real ale and prices exorbitant! Food however reportedly excellent!

Has now opened as "Harborne Kitchen", a restaurant as mentioned in my previous post. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks exclusive and expensive. Don't know if they still serve real ale.

Currently undergoing a major rebuild, with a view to making it a fine dining venue. It was advertised originally as a "pop up" venue, but quickly became a more permanent feature of the High Street . The venture is run by a couple of enterprising young chefs with a commitment to real ale, so watch this space for developments.

I forgot to add - if you are planning a visit, bear in mind that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Visited a couple of weeks back. Quite a small front area but they have made the most of the space with plenty of seating. I noticed there is also a separate room to the rear. The thing I couldn't help noticing on entering was the smell - maybe it was a trick of the mind but it did have that hint of old butchers shop - a mix of meat and sawdust. There was chipboard all over, and I am not sure if this is meant to look rustic or whether it's work in progress. Tables are made out of old pallets.

At the bar there were three hand pumps, two of which were serving cider which only left one for real ale. This was Sadlers Citrus Ride at the time of my visit, not badly priced at £3.50. However I was a bit disappointed that it was served in a plastic glass! Nonetheless the Citrus Ride was delicious and served at perfect temperature. I was only stopping for one so the lack of choice was not an issue.

I did not sample the food but I observed a couple come in after me and they had their food served to their table in polystyrene trays.

A bit of a quirky place, an interesting experience, and can't fault the ale. Would recommend a visit, if only once to try it.
