We came here for our Christmas meal and were treated very badly throughout by the staff. After they entirely forgot to give us our first course there was no apology and only scowls from the waitress. The standard of service was poor throughout and a service charge was added anyway. Needless to say for a much needed celebration we were... More

Just a cool place with great staff and good food ... would be a great venue to hire the entire place for a party or wedding reception.

I first knew of this place during a business gathering and was very impressed with the layout. Immediately upon entrance is a beautiful dark spiral stair case, but once entering inside, you get this instant feel of cosiness and warmth.

Quiet midweek. Pleasant surroundings. Sadly no draught beer tonight. It is usually good. Tasty food and good selection of food.

My son got married here in August. The venue has great atmosphere with excellent catering. Great upstairs outdoor balcony that enabled guests to mix well. Good dance area and additional quieter room.

Worth looking for the Drop Forge in the middle of the working Jewellery Quarter for a meal - cosy corners for a romantic meal or more formal tables for an office or work meal. Good choice of great food.

For a fashionable area of Birmigham the place would have been dead if my family of about 30 people weren't there for a surprise birthday party. The venue looks expensive and my god the food and drink match. Would I visit the place again, not really as I like to have a good atmosphere and vibe for the places I... More
