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 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

    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 disappointed. We visited here for my moms birthday as we have been before and had a great experience. This time however was the complete opposite! Our table was booked for 7.30 so not too late, by then they had run out of the starter we wanted to share which was Camembert and by the time we managed to get attention from the staff to order puddings they had ran out of the creme brûlée. This was very disappointing especially as there was no apology from the staff. The service was shocking, and very slow. We didn't end up ordering a starter, we all had the same main of steak which one turned up without garnish, my dads came out well done when he ordered medium rare but as we'd waiting so long didn't bother complaining as was all hungry. No one came to check if everything was ok with our meals, we then sat with empty plates for half an hour. When someone finally cleared our plates away they came back and literally just dumped pudding menus on the table. We then had to try and get someone's attention to order, but as they had ran out of what we wanted decided against pudding. I had to go to the bar to ask for the bill. Just a slow and poor service.

    We dined here on Sunday and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, food was delicious. After our meal we took our children in to the garden to meet family and enjoy the sun. Unfortunately, when the children went off to explore I was not impressed by the state of the garden at the back. Seating area for a beer garden was very nice but on going up the stairs to explore the area behind the trees looked like a dumping ground of broken chairs, metal grids and broken table legs. The hand rail going up the stairs fell off and hit my nephew. When we approached staff to air our concerns we were told they shouldn't be up there and that the rail fell off due to children swinging from it. There was nothing telling us they couldn't play there and no children had been swinging on rail. Staff then blocked the top of the steps off with a board saying keep out, and staff were very unfriendly to the children when they were enquiringly why. Such a shame as could be a lovely place to socialise with family.
