Restaurant description

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.

    Very welcoming..pleasant, helpful staff.. nothing was too much trouble...lovely food,well presented. My friend and I both had the chicken pie with the best puff pastry topping we had tasted for a long time !... The mini pud/coffee then rounded our meal off perfectly!

    Upon arrival the computer was not working so they could not find my booking. Luckily I had my reservation text to confirm this. When ordering our food we was told the filet steak was out of stock so had to order something else. We were not courtesy checked at all and was disappointed when asked for some mayonnaise we was given a jar, how many other customers knives have been in this jar I wonder? On ordering puddings we had to get someone over to take our order and they took 30mins to arrive which 1 was sent back as custard was cold. Expect more from a vintage inn so very disappointed glad I paid less than the next customer as I used my staff discount else I would have been asking for a refund. I won't be returning.

    Very poor vegetarian options the one I chose I was told had sold out & no alternative was suggested, the waiter went back to the kitchen came back & said they could do it with out the cheese sauce which was fine but then when it came out I had to ask for the sides I had ordered. On the whole not a very good service & poor food options
