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.

    Visited this restaurant in a group of 4. Food was very good, particularly the sea bass! Desserts were very generous. Service was slightly disappointing as our waiter disappeared later in the evening. Overall though, great dining and drinking - with good offers on prosecco with Friday fizz deal! Xxxx

    Really nice friendly pub. Car park is big but could do with being better lit. Lovely open fire but it seems a bit odd that there are dining tables in that area, we wouldn't have wanted to eat there but would have loved to have sat by it after our meal and had a nightcap. Food was lovely, plenty of choice, good mixture of unusual and familiar items to choose from. Very well presented and good quality, could not fault the food at all. Tables are very well spaced out in a large dining area with a great rustic atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and offered very good customer service.

    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 ??
