Fashioned in the style of a charming farmhouse, The Little Owl is a rustic haven near Solihull and Birmingham, serving well-loved British meals. The classic brick hearth, oak beams and traditional trinkets ensure it is a cosy pub, with appealing modern touches, such as the colourful arm chairs and the art. You can also enjoy the food outside in the al fresco garden for summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Little Owl menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Little Owl ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Little Owl is just a 15-minute walk from Birmingham International Train Station, or 14 minutes in the car from Solihull.

    Was pleased that we could book online the same afternoon. Eaten here several times. The food was great and made up for the unfortunate time we had to wait to order our food, had to go and get the waiter twice to order, they seemed a bit under resourced - equally the restaurant did not appear overly busy. What would have been helpful was if someone had told us we might have to wait a bit, then at least you feel informed and not invisible to the staff.

    Lovely location and atmosphere.
    Service was poor - 30 mins+ for starters
    food was average.

    Selected for its central location, near to lots of major roads. Best points about this pub are it's friendly service - efficient but not rushed or pushy - & the relaxed atmosphere. The menu is well priced on the whole but looks a bit tired now & could do with a few more options for non meat eaters.

    Really enjoyed it. Food was good, just as expected and staff were really friendly and helpful. The environment was great too and allowed everyone at out table to feel relaxed.

    This is a pub with pub food. Pleasant surroundings, open fire, etc. The problem is that the kitchen is simply not set up to provide decent timely food. We waited 35 minutes for one starter to arrive. The problem is, we'd ordered this starter as a main (with side of chips). We explained the situation to one of the staff who walked off and didn't come back (not acceptable). We explained the situation again to another member of staff who took the meal away and apologised, saying they'd bring all the meals out together. It was 1 hour 10 minutes before we got our meals, not what you want when you have an hour for lunch. The (better) waiter said he was trying to sort a discount, but seemed to be having a problem with this, which again, isn't good service. Instead we asked for some drinks and didn't pay for them. The food was mediocre. There were several people around us complaining and sending food back which probably didn't help the timely service... Left feeling pretty annoyed.

    Lovely selection of Sunday roast meats. Vegetables beautifully selected and cooked

    We were travelling to NEC for a concert and didn't fancy their fast food. Saw this place on Google. Similar to a local pub we have as it's Vintage Inns. Booked a table online. Easy! Arrived at Little Owl about 6: p.m.. Easy to park. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. Good service. Highly recommend. Much better than NEC. NEC parking only 5 mins away by car. Civilised meal. Very relaxing
