A smokehouse that beckons diners in with its eclectic style and cosy ambience, The Dark Horse blends tastes of America and Britain together perfectly. Alongside the meat delicacies are a huge range of cask ales and craft beers from around the world, and there are frequent live music events which are big draws.

Mouthwatering slow-cooked meats are the speciality on the Dark Horse menu, with prime cuts of beef and pork expertly smoked using signature techniques. There are chicken wings in a choice of glazes, a selection of burgers with toppings like smoked ham hock and sweetcorn relish, and a range of hand-tossed pizzas are prepared in the wood-fired oven.

Classic desserts from the States at The Dark Horse in Birmingham include pancakes with pistachio ice cream, while the craft beer selection features bottles from across the globe, as well as local breweries. There are artisan spirits on offer too, including corn whiskey from Georgia, and Mezcal from south of the border.

With its hearty dishes and great range of live music acts, The Dark Horse is a thoroughly sociable eatery all through the week. University Rail Station is a 9-minute drive away.

    The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent. I love American style bbq and the smoked brisket here was amongst the best I've had. The craft beers on offer were also excellent. Definitely worth the 25 minute drive there!
