Real Ale Ray left this review about The Button Factory

A large urban style bar, which was quite busy on our early Saturday eve visit. The customer base was mid 20's, who were all dressed up to the 9's. The service was very good on entry, in spite of the amount of cocktails being knocked up. There were 8 keg options repeated across two industrial steel pipes, plus a choice from two hand pumps. We went for the Purity Mad Goose at £4 a pint and I have to say the beer was in great shape.
We sat at a very large table in the main front bar, where a very trendy couple in their late 50's joined us, who were friendly and chatty. I liked this venue as it was vibrant and the in house music was also to my liking, alternative rather than mainstream.

24/09/2016 - revisit as the place has been revamped as the Button Factory. It seems most people now congregate on the upper level. Plenty of sofas and the like. Sadly the beer quality now seems to be appalling!

25/06/2012 - Vertu - Modern bar, comfortable enough, set out for weekend liveliness, lots of brick & part of the Jewellery Quarter scene no doubt.

One real ale - Purity, which was actually good & therefore an extra mark from me for the effort in a trendy situation.

A trendy looking bar and while its ok I wasn't overly fond of the place. Open plan with bare brick walls. 2 handpumps today were dispensing Purity Ubu and Sadlers JPA. Cheaper than the last place I was in so that was a bit of a bonus.
