I recently wrote a post about the best Sunday dinners in Birmingham, but I think I’ve got a new addition to that list. Step forward The Wolf in Jewellery Quarter.
Ian and I have always really enjoyed this pub, found about 10 minutes walk from Snow Hill. The tap beer selection is great but it’s usually the cheese boards that keep us coming back. As of this Sunday it may well be the roast dinners. Beef or turkey lunches come in at £12 (the veggie option is a mushroom wellington for £10) with sides such as cauliflower cheese and braised red cabbage an extra £3. Roast spuds, Yorkshire puddings, shredded greens and celeriac purée come with each option.
The highlights of this dinner are the roast potatoes and celeriac purée, although it’s more of a mash to be honest. The spuds are perfectly crispy on the outside but fluffy and soft as you like inside. They’re some of the best I’ve had in Brum, no question. The beef slices are thick and a generous amount sits on the plate. I’d have liked mine a little pinker, but I’m pretty sure we were the first diners of the day so likely had the outer slices. Still, it was good quality and had little fat to chew through.
Bonus points for the homemade Yorkshire’s that are big but light. Gravy came thick and plentiful with an extra jug available on request. Sides of cauliflower cheese and mash proved to be totally unnecessary as the dinners themselves are quite large. Nice for a taster though, with a good cheesy cheddar crust on the cauliflower.
Relaxed pub food with lots to offer. Don’t forget you can get 15% off the bill with your Independent Birmingham card, making a roast here about £10.
