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

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

Went here on a Saturday with some friends, it was relatively quiet so I'm not sure why the service was so poor, we got given menus for food, as soon as we ordered our drinks the waitress took the menus away, we had to wait 15 minutes for our drinks, only then could we ask for the menus to order...

We go here regularly and this is always a place where we know we'll get what we want. The staff and kitchen are very flexible and it's a very friendly place. Absolutely recommend it.

Dan and the team did a wonderful job for my daughters wedding reception. The food was amazing. the transformation of the place was incredible.The efficiency of the staff in converting the dining space to a dance floor was like a military operation and was done so that it did not intrude. The staff made sure the bride and groom were... More

This is a light and airy venue with young, welcoming staff. This was my second visit- the first had been at lunchtime in the middle of shopping in the Quarter, and the second at the end of the day. The conversion of a workshop means the thick walls keep the heat out, providing welcome shade. Seating is casual downstairs, with... More

We dropped in for lunch whilst visiting the jewellery quarter last week, The bar and restaurant is really smart with different areas for intimate drinks or some thing to eat with a crowd of people. The food was really good my fiancée had the fish whilst I had the burger ( probably the best I have had since returning to... More
