Restaurant description

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.

    Ordered the seasonal salad advertised as “Bulgur wheat, courgette, chickpeas and carrot combined with cherry tomatoes and mixed baby leaves. Dressed with herb oil and topped with soya beans, green lentils and mixed seeds.” When it came it was only mixed baby leaves with some carrot and a few tomatoes. There was NONE of the other ingredients. Sent it back, they replaced it after 20 min wait. By then everyone else had finished their meals. I mean, how hard can it be???!!! The rest of the meals were good.
