Review: The Fighting Cocks, Moseley

Since we live in the north of the city, we don’t often get to explore areas like Moseley as much as we should. We have visited the Fighting Cocks before a few years ago with friends, but I didn’t really remember much about it. So when we were kindly invited down to take a look at the new menu we were keen to see what this old pub had to offer.

The New Lichfield Brewhouse & Kitchen

A couple of weeks ago Brewhouse & Kitchen launched a new venue for their brand – near to us in Lichfield. We’d only recently visited their Sutton Coldfield branch for the first time and enjoyed our time there – Lee being particularly taken with the beer selection, so when we were invited to pop down to Lichfield for lunch, we were happy to.

The venue itself on the corner of bird street is large and spacious, with a variety of bench style seating, upturned barrels and your more standard tables too. I like the casual decor with lots of wood and metal features.  Continue reading

Review: Twisted Burger Company, Sheffield

Review: Brewhouse and Kitchen Sutton Coldfield

Brewhouse and Kitchen in Sutton Coldfield has been around for a little while now, but is somewhere we have never got round to trying. I first thought it was an independent pub & kitchen, but turns out there’s quite a few of them across the country, mostly in the south. They also all boast an in house microbrewery, which must be a good draw for the beer lovers amongst us.

As well as the pub and restaurant, they run beer masterclasses and brewery experience days too, the former of which we are going to try out at the newly opened Lichfield branch soon, so watch this space for that!

Review: The Red Lion, Alvechurch

A few weeks ago we took advantage of a lovely sunny Sunday to go on a little mini road trip. South Birmingham really isn’t somewhere we know much about or have explored, so when the opportunity to try out a pub in the village of Alvechurch came up we decided to go for it.

We made the most of the morning sunshine first by exploring Lickey Hills Country park, where Imogen even had her first go on a swing!
