A brilliant find in the heart of the jewellery quarter

We stumbled across this place whilst on the Birmingham Owl Trail. It is a beautifully designed place which manages to be light and open, but in other parts warm and cosy at the same time. Bar service was prompt and friendly. Because we were only passing through we just stopped for drinks on the... read more

Visted here on 27th August, nice looking place so all got off to a good start. Service was good, and attentive. Food ordered no delays, and not too quick either. Various meals were ordered but my steak was dry, colleagues had the chicken & mushroom pie and they said it was tasty but they had to ask for gravy as... More

I am astonished by the negative reports of a couple of recent reviewers. We had lunch there last Wednesday, and all the staff were charming and helpful – not a trace of "surliness". The food was excellent too, and the ambience very pleasant. The Jewellery Quarter does not seem to have many eating places beyond the café level, and the... More

Been before, love the building and the menu, service just shocking this time. No one took our food order until we asked, there was a huge wait although not busy, then for some unknown reason the starters and mains arrive together, staff all more interested in talking to one another than keeping an eye on the tables. Food, when it... More

We had introductory drinks in the upper floor of the restaurant which also has an outdoor patio area which as the day was very warm was ideal following drinks we went downstairs for the main meal. For starters we... More

I attended for the first time at a wedding. The venue is lovely. As the weather was good, we made full use of the cosy roof top garden. The staff were great: very smiley and professional. The foods both day and evening was good qualiity, well presented and plentiful. There was a good choice for vegetarians. A massive thank you... More

I had been walking the Pugin Trail with a group of friends, one of whom suggested this place for lunch. It was a superb choice. It was a lovely day so we sat on the sun terrace. The service was good, if a bit slow (although good food does not come quickly). The food and drinks could not be faulted... More

When I dine out, I want to smell the food and NOT overbearing lillies! Our drinks were left at the counter for 15 minutes. The drinks server (she is not a bar maid I heard her tell one customer!) just left them while the only waitress had to serve four tables. One table waited so long, they left to go... More

We popped in the Drop Forge while in the Jewellery Quarter for a coffee and sandwich. The venue is beautiful and very comfortable - but I did find the sandwiches costly and not very tasty.

Went for pre birthday dinner drinks here, and gave ended up here for drinks a couple of times in Friday nights. Always somewhere to sit, especially in all the little nooks and crannies filled with cosy benches and cushions. Service is prompt, the atmosphere perfect for talking with friends. One of the best places for a drink in the Jewellery... More
