We regularly go to this restaurant because as is indicated in several other reviews Mike and the Team make a real effort to keep in touch with all their customers and keep sending offers to us by e-mail. We have had meals here regularly since it was refurbished and have never had a burnt meal or had our dessert forgotten... More

They always forget to serve you dessert. The food standard has deteriorated so much that we've given up going there. The serving staff could be more friendly/welcoming.

Mike and his team do a great job here and they work hard to establish relationships with their customers. Always something going on and the place has a warm and friendly atmosphere which makes it a great place for a meal or a drink. I have been here night and day and never had a bad meal.

Tuesday 24th January 17, I took my husband out to dinner to celebrate his forthcoming Birthday for a meal at ‘The Fox & Dogs’ in Sutton Coldfield. We were served to a nice two course dinner. My husband had a Sirloin Steak with a peppercorn sauce served with mushroom, tomato, peas and chunky chips. I also had a Sirloin Steak... More

I've drank & eaten in here a few times and the staff always seem friendly, the beer is good and the seating areas are comfortable. The problems lie with the loud & foul mouth locals that seem to occupy the same table (on every one of my visits) The swearing and the smoking of vapes right by the bar is... More

Christmas celebration meal was spent here for a large party (20+). Tables were set up in a way where people could interact with most members of the party, the food was served in a timely order ensuring no one had to wait until their meal was cold before starting, the Christmas menu was varied and people got what they ordered,...

A lot of money has been spent on the décor inside and out, but the quality of the food could be better. Portions were not big, but still quite pricey. Service could be a lot better; very hit and miss. This pub isn't making the most of itself.
