Cocktails @ Lost and Found, Bennetts Hill


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’m quite a fan of the cocktails at Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill, so much so a few weeks ago I spent an entire Sunday in there working my way through the new menu. The following Monday was brutal… The cocktail list has had a revamp as has the venue itself, which reopened during […]

Pub grub @ The Shakespeare Inn, Temple Street


Bars & Pubs, Review

The last time I visited The Shakespeare Inn I was 2am smashed at lunchtime. From what I remembered, most of the other people in there were too, so I didn’t roll up to my latest visit expecting an awful lot. That says much more about me than The Shakespeare Inn, I realise. My recent experience of […]

Hearty roast dinners @ The Red Lion, Hockley


Bars & Pubs, Review

I first visited The Red Lion one sunny Saturday last summer during a particularly awful bout of hangryitis. My husband (then fiancé) and I sat in the beer garden and tried some of the small plates, but vowed to return to try their famous roast dinners we kept hearing so much about. Fast forward (an […]

An eccentric hidden gem @ The Ruin, Digbeth


Bars & Pubs, Review

Everyone has their favourite Digbeth hangout. I’ve always been a total fangirl for Digbeth Dining Club myself, but I’ve found a new favourite in the shape of The Ruin. Found on Floodgate Street, The Ruin manages to combine an old school boozer with your mad aunt’s back room circa 1974. It’s loud, intentionally a bit […]

Bottomless Sunday lunch @ Tanner & Co, London


Bars & Pubs, BYB Travels

This weekend I headed to London for a fabulous birthday brunch at Tanner & Co in Bermondsey. Located in South London, a stone’s throw from everyone’s favourite phalic building, The Shard, and London Bridge, Tanner & Co is a gorgeous bar and restaurant. They offer breakfast and brunch, but this visit is all about the […]

Bars & Pubs, Pop ups, Ramblings

I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for the best chicken wings I can find, and I’ve eaten enough now to share some of my favourites. The seven places below are offering some of the best chicken wings in Birmingham city centre, in my opinion. From crispy fried wings dipped in blue cheese to grilled whole […]

Bottomless brunch @ Lost and Found


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lost and Found and this new-look version is top banana. Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill officially reopens Friday March 2nd, but last week some friends and I checked out the newly renovated bar to try the updated bottomless brunch. It’s a hard life.. no really it is, […]
