We had the chorizo and wild boar burger with triple cook chips and really enjoyed it. Great atmosphere and love the medieval decor.

A stunning medieval-styled basement pub, Bacchus Bar in Birmingham is an atmospheric and intimate hideaway on one of the city's oldest streets. Filled with cosy nooks throughout, a great range of pub grub and cask ales are served.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Bacchus Bar menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Bacchus Bar bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

A truly atmospheric and intimate pub, Bacchus Bar is 7 minutes' walk from Birmingham New Street Station.

    we were met with a smile, given a choice of tables. The waitress was attentive without being pushy. Her menu knowledge was excellent and enabled us to order exactly what we wanted. My wife was given a taste of the two sauvignon blanc and was able to choose the one she liked.. The food was nicely cooked, the sharing skinny platter and a main course left us sated. Value for money in a cool soothing atmosphere, what's not to like. This is now my number Nicholson's.
