Review: Brewhouse and Kitchen Sutton Coldfield

Last week we took a trip to the newly opened Brewhouse and Kitchen Sutton Coldfield for lunch.

As the place of my previous employment, I’m familiar with the Sutton Coldfield food and drink scene and was pretty excited when a friend told me that a new ‘cool pub’ had opened there. Over the last couple of years I’ve witnessed a number of restaurants and cafés pop up in the town (thank you Nandos), but in my opinion ‘cool pubs’ are in short supply.

So I was excited to try it out and went along with my friend Lisa and our two tots.

My friend was right. Brewhouse and Kitchen definitely is cool. But not at all pretentious. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming with cosy fires, comfy seating and a neighbourhood pub vibe.

The interior is a happy union of rustic charm with an industrial edge – chrome lamps and stylish seats sit amongst traditional log burners, oak tables and decorative wooden crates. My favourite feature has to be the roaring fire which sits in the middle of a large, inviting table. That and the copper stills which take pride of place at the entrance, just in case you didn’t realise that these guys are good at beer.

Eating out with a one-year old is always a messy affair and I do sometimes feel acutely aware of the mess and noise pollution created by Taylor whenever we eat out. It’s not unusual to get the feeling that we’ve outstayed our welcome at a restaurant. But there’s none of that here.

The relaxed vibe also extends to the staff who are friendly and accommodating. I felt as though we could’ve easily spent the entire afternoon there just enjoying a long lazy lunch and good conversation. Oh wait…we did! There are even a handful of board games available to play if you really need another reason not to go home.

Burgers are one of the specialities with a whole host of mouth-watering combinations to choose from. Other options include hearty stews like beef bourguignon or cajun gumbo, alongside other pub classics such as ham, egg and chips. Lighter options are also available if you don’t want to feel truly stuffed.

A bit of a fan of the ‘truly stuffed’ feeling myself, I opted for the New Yorker – 100% Aberdeen Angus beef, BBQ pulled pork, Monterey Jack cheese, tomato, lettuce and red onion. What’s that you say? Yes, I was pretty hungry and it didn’t disappoint.

Lisa went for the Dirty Dog – smoked frankfurter topped with crispy onions, jalapeno peppers, cheese and mustard, which looked equally as satisfying.

For dessert we shared the chocolate brownie with ice-cream; far too indulgent for mid-week, but it would’ve been rude not to…Lucky for us it was what my mum would describe as ‘light’ – so we had no problem polishing it off!

There’s also a £5 lunch menu which is ideal for those working in the town centre looking for a quick bite on their lunch break.

Since it was midday and we were visiting as responsible parents, we unfortunately didn’t get to sample one of the highlights of Brewhouse and Kitchen – the beer. All brewed on site and named after local legends, the pub offers an impressive selection of craft beers, real ales and internationally bottled beers.  They even host brewing experience days if you really want to become a master in all things beer.

It’s official. Brewhouse and Kitchen Sutton Coldfield is one cool pub.
