Dating back to the 1700s, The Red Lion - Birmingham has a history of holding village meetings, and still welcomes in many people looking for great British pub food. In the beautiful valley of the River Arrow, it has a classic whitewashed exterior, and features many squashy Chesterfield sofas, a warming hearth and real, old photography to aid the sense of age. You can also enjoy the food from the eye-catching al fresco garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Red Lion 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 Red Lion ‘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.

At just a 12-minute walk from Alvechurch Train Station, or 21 minutes’ driving into Birmingham, The Red Lion is brilliantly located.

    Lovely food we both had the Moroccan cous cousi with salmon. Really fresh with lots of fruit in the salad. Our waitress and her manager couldn't be more helpful and friendly. A lively night :-)

    Despite having a confirmed booking, there was not actually a reserved for us in the bar area! We had to eat in the bar area as we had our dog with us and this was made clear in the booking, and followed up with a telephone call to the pub! We had booked to eat here for two nights while staying nearby and once again there was not actually a table reserved when we arrived. The staff had to clear and clean a table for us both evenings The staff were however friendly but very busy, we had an extremely long wait for our food after placing our order ??

    I booked a table to eat with my three sisters, we had a table in a quiet location which allowed us to talk without excessive noise. The young man came to our table to take our drinks order and then returned after a little while to take the food order, sadly, whole sea bass was not available, but the food that we ordered was tasty, hot and plentiful. The service was excellent and the young man was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu.

    Starters ,pizzas and service good.
    Made booking after an invitation for 20% discount thro Bookatable.
    Highlighted this when we were shown to a table so were disappointed when full price bill was presented at the end. Soon rectified but a bad oversight.

    Very boring and average food. Olives were very unpleasant to start with and the food was poorly presented and dull, not good value for money even with the 20% off. Wont be going back.

    The meal was good, the service attentive. The on line booking did not reach them, however they found a table without fuss. The table for two was by a door leading to the garden and annoyingly children kept going in and out making it drafty . I like the venue but was disappointed in the booking service and the table allocated.

    Food was only average and well over priced
