A former home of E.M. Forster no less, this pleasing boozer launched in 2013 with a menu of solid British bistro fare including scotch eggs that are “easily good enough to qualify as a substantial meal” (and also an extensive gin and craft-beer list); sadly the newer Birmingham branch was an early Covid casualty.

“Tasty, simple, British bistro fare” washed down by a “great selection of craft beers” plus a “brilliant range of gins” is the formula at this “great traditional pub with a twist”, launched five years ago. There’s a second branch in Birmingham, but a spinoff in Oxford closed down.

“Quirky” and “fun” gastroboozer – inspired by early Victorian pubs (and set in a house where EM Forster once lived) – which serves “great beer” and food that’s “adequate in a city not blessed with a lot of high quality alternatives”. Founded in 2014, it has spawned offshoots in Oxford and Birmingham.

"Reliable pub type food in a rough and ready setting. Good value and wonderful real ales. The wine list is minimalist. "
