A little short staffed but we had plenty of time. Food was fabulous and so was the service we received. Waiter was rushing around from when we arrived until we left.

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.

    I ordered southern chicken and asked for 5 pieces only 3 came and told the waiter, he said he would collect the rest but they never came and then I told him to change the bill to only 3 pieces, so its not good. Would not dine there again.

    The restaurant itself is great to eat in. Food was delicious. Best of all was the amazing waitress who was friendly, helpful and informative. Strongly suggest you book early to get a seat.

    Trying to order if you eat at the bar is a completely different matter. complete mayhem. No-one knows where to order from or queue up. it was a bunfight the night i ate at the bar because restaurant full. What customers want is clear direction of where to queue to order. There were only two people serviing and a huge queue. When customers are tired after travelling they dont need this aggravation which would be completely solved with a clear indication of where to queue and to have more staff on. Shame because the food is really good.

    On our first night we arrived at 8pm by the time we received our main course it was 10pm, our first choice was not available, in the end we chose fish and chips and although the piece of fish was reasonable the batter was very chewy which told us it had been standing too long. They have a monopoly and the food is second rate the service slow and the tables are far too close for any privacy. Our opinion is that greed is driving this restaurant and not any consideration for the customers. We will not be going again.
