Incredibly slow service. Waitress got the order wrong (and argued with us about it). Food didn't arrive at the same time - about 20 minutes between different dishes. Surly and unhelpful staff. Bland & disappointing food. Avoid.

Been here before so expected better. We ordered 6 meals...chips never came out with the burger. Pork loin was tough. That and the bar manager shouting at his staff in view of everyone....shame as usually had a good meal here.

I liked the look of the Sunday paella special. £6.95 for authentic paella and advertised as cooked in front of you. I was served cold paella rice, chicken that was cold red and bloody and sparse vegetables. The food took ages to arrive and when I complained I was given a refund but no offer of any other food from... More

We are currently here watching England and are thoroughly enjoying our evening. Drinks service very good and very friendly. When you are in Birmingham centre make sure you pay this venue a visit.

I often pop here for a bite to eat or a coffee to escape the madness of the bullring. I've only ever had food at lunch but it is served quickly and good quality for the price you pay. I enjoy their burgers! My only niggle is the toilets are reminiscent of a public toilet and need to be modernised... More

I went there with my friends last week to have a pre theatre dinner. The Hot Spicy Breast was great, the staff was very attentive and. Even though it was pretty busy and we've arrived 30 minutes before the show started the food arrived just in time. I will definitely go back there again!

I popped into The Green Room for a late afternoon bite to eat and a drink. Whilst the place was clearly packed and the staff were very busy, I found that the service was still excellent. The staff that attended to my table over-delivered in terms of attentiveness and making sure that I had a positive experience at their restaurant.... More

Very slow service, lots of items on menu not available. No steak on a Saturday night! Meals didn't all come at the same time. Had to wait ages for drinks and again didn't have half the beers advertised on the menu. Ladies toilet out of order. What else can I say except avoid like the plague
