An unexpected pleasure.

we arrived here unexpectedly having tried the pub over the road for a dog-friendly Sunday lunch, and they didn't serve food on a Sunday. The Drop Forge let us in with our dog, I don't think they do it as a matter of course. We had a lovely Sunday lunch, roasts and a beef burger, all presented well... read more

Went there last night for the first time. Excellent food in terms of presentation, preparation and portion size. Nice choice of beers. Smart restaurant but also pub atmosphere. 2 min walk from Jewellery Otr train station.

Visited early afternoon after it had been recommended by a friend who had been before. Choose the burger and must say it very nice. A very relaxing place to eat and drink. Very good selection of beers and a nice menu. Staff were very professional and friendly.

Today I visited for Sunday lunch with my wife. The layout of the restaurant is pleasant, an open central area covered by a skylight (great on a bright day). The only downside is that it can be a little bit cool in winter. My Sunday roast included a good sized portion of tender beef with crispy Yorkshire pud, accompanied by... More

First time visit for a Sunday roast here and was lovely. Good portion sizes, nicely presented and perfectly cooked meat. Lovely venue, often lacking atmosphere and a crowd but good for a quiet Sunday roast. Service wasn't the best despite it being quiet. I would definitely return as food was so good and reasonably priced at £13 a roast.

The Drop Forge is one of the nicest venues in the Jewellery Quarter perfect for any occasion! We had a great meal - we had steak and pork lion! The service was fantastic and overall a lovely evening with a great selection of wine too.

I hate to write this negative review because I like the look of this place and my first visit here during the Birmingham Jazz Week was quite pleasant. However, my visit on 22nd December was not at all pleasant. On entering the pub at 22:20 with my wife and son (we had taken him there specifically to show him what... More
