The menu has something for everyone and their appetite; whether you’re in the mood for a classic sandwich or a hearty burger, there is most definitely something to suit you. I had the pulled pork wrap (I did choose the burger, but they got my order wrong!) which came with chips. The pork was smokey, succulent and seriously juicy. It had a helping of guacamole and spicy mayo in there too which gave it an extra dimension. If I went there again, I’d definitely go for a burger as I was left feeling a little hungry. Harry had a fully loaded hot dog which was a sausage topped with pulled pork and slaw. It looked amazing and went down a treat. We loved the chips; they were chunky and had definitely been doubled fried or something, so yummy! In terms of drinks, they pretty much serve what a regular pub would but there are some nicer choices. To Harry’s delight, they served Doom Bar, his favourite ale. To my delight, they also served Old Mout cider which is my all time favourite right now; the passion fruit and apple is a crisp, light accompaniment to a lunch (and doesn’t taste that alcoholic… dangerous!)
I haven’t done a food post in a long time… too long! Harry and I decided to go for somewhere on my Independent Birmingham card and hopefully discover yet another hidden gem in Birmingham. We went for The Sun On The Hill, which is on Bennetts Hill – a stones throw away from New Street Station and the Bullring. It’s a pub with a bit of a trendy twist, serving good, comforting food that tastes amazing. The interior is really cool; high ceilings and beer logo wallpaper with welcoming wooden tables and a friendly atmosphere. As it’s a pub, it fills up for the football matches. Harry and I wanted to go before Easter, but decided against it as it was teeming with Brummie football fans! However, mid-week lunch times are ideal, as it’s fairly quiet and is a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the shops.
So overall, a good choice if you’re looking for a hearty lunch after a days shopping. The food is really reasonably priced; it’s nicer than standard pub food, but not quite gastro therefore striking a happy medium. If you own an Independent Birmingham card, then you can get a whopping 25% off the bill which makes a lunch less than a tenner.
