A half million pound refurbishment will see a popular Sutton Coldfield pub reopen as a Mediterranean restaurant today.
The Reddicap Tavern in Hollyfield Road is to open as the region’s first Pesto Italian bar and restaurant.

A detached 1930s style undressed brick pub, with dormer windows and a patio area.

The interior is technically open plan, but has three areas forming a U-shape around the bar that faces you on entry. The area to the right has a pool table and some sofas and comfy chairs. The area to the left is like a lounge, with a dart board. The central bar area has a dj booth area and TVs with the sport on. The decor throughout is red and cream, with a wood floor. There is a mix of old photos and arty pictures on the walls. The service was good, the clientele a mix of locals and the music, supplied by a DJ was 80s, but loud.

Beer; tap stuff, no real ale - with Theakston's MILD and Bitter, with Dark Smooth. The MILD was fine.

A proper pub, rather than the food factories you mainly see around Sutton. Happy to have stopped off and would go in again.

This looks like a large 'modern' pub - by that I would say it dates to somewhere between the 30s and the 50s. Inside, it is much smaller than it appears to be from the outside.

The interior is like a stretched out 'L' shape with long bar.

The decor looked a little tired. The clientele seemed mixed and I got the impression that on occasion it could get a little 'tasty' in here. However, on my visit, I felt comfortable and relaxed. In fact, the punters and barman were quite friendly.

There is the usual stuff with no real ale. However, there were three beers on which I could happily drink - Theakstons Mild, Theakstons Bitter and Theakstons Dark Smooth. I had the Mild on my visit and it was really nice.

I would happily come back here for a drink, but I would probably not come on a Friday or Saturday night!
