Large roadside pub, the bar faces you as you walk in. To the right is a formal dining area, to the left is a relaxed lounge area. High ceilinged, looks like maybe 1920's type pub.

The informal lounge has a collection of seating from padded sofas to leather back benches, cushions, its a bit arty & what you may expect in northern Sutton Coldfield, but here theres a better feel, with effort put in, probably steming from a more independant place. Altogether a fine place with three very well kept real ales.

A detached pub/eatery with patio area in cream render and what seem to be projecting towers almost, which break the roof level. The design is modern and different, yet gives me the impression of a Mediterranean villa - but hey, i am not an architect!

The interior is a U-shape around the bar that faces you as you enter by the main entrance. The decor is like Neopolitan ice-cream - with layers of colour; white, dark brown, light brown and a blackish ceiling. The bar area, to the left when entering, has sofas, comfy chairs and extra tables, with candles on, and a little fireplace tucked out of the way - so not to my taste really. The dining area is to the right - i just saw tables with candles - which is what you expect from a dining area! I didn't see a TV, but the background music seemed charty, but was at an OK level. The service was fine and the clientele mixed and mostly dining. I didn't eat so can't comment directly, but i have had word that the food is good.

Beer; usual tap stuff, with a good selection of 4 handpulls, which had Abbot Ale, Deuchars IPA and a couple of guests, Sheppy Neame Whitstable Bay and Caledonian Mexican Bandit - ironically, both were well kept, but neither to my taste.

I see this place more as a restaurant, that offers a good choice of drinks. As more of a traditionalist it isn't totally to my taste, but it is one of the couple of places in Mere Green (along with the Four Oakes) that I can understand why people would come here - there are several i cant! I think if i returned it would be to eat, not just for a drink.
