Pubs are a dime a dozen in Birmingham, but go just a little out the centre and you'll find something a little more country, a little more glamorous and a lot less common than the city-dwelling pubs.
The Village Moseley (in Moseley), calls itself 'your urban home from home', so, when my friends and I were parched last week Saturday, falling into Moseley's 'home from home', only felt natural.
We ended up having a small bite after settling into the plush seats in Moseley's finest gastro-pub-esque venue. I say small bites, but my friend opted for a roast whilst I enjoyed the roast chicken with crispy bacon sandwich. It was a filling bite stuffed with meat, salad leaves and fresh tomatoes.
The pub itself is full of cosy sofas, the standard tables and chairs, but also a stack of board games. It was so cool. The pub is an old Victorian building which has been given a sleek makeover whilst retaining the original features.
There's a decent-sized outdoor terrace too, perfect for when the sun starts to shine.
My epic sarnie
The food is one of the main pulls of the pub and whilst we enjoyed the mains, there's a 'two for one' brunch offer at the moment, so you can enjoy breakfast or an early lunch over the weekend.
