Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Neighbourhood pub serving local and international beers and well known for its busy calendar of live music and parties

One for the dancers, the rockers, the hipsters and the ravers, The Hare & Hounds has an eclectic programme of live music and party nights to cater for almost every taste. It’s also a great place to while away a lazy Sunday.

King's Heath, the increasingly vibrant area to the south of the city centre, is where this musical mecca is found, in a Grade II-listed building sprawling across multiple floors and spaces. Ever since UB40 played their first gig here back in 1979, The Hare & Hounds has been on the city’s music map.

The high ceilings and heritage interiors are a great setting for the buzzing crowds that throng here every weekend (and often during the week, too). There’s a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – even on busy nights – in a venue that manages to retain its neighbourhood pub vibe.

You’ll pay £4.50 for a pint of top-notch local craft beer, but there are plenty of cheaper options like San Miguel and Estrella. They also stock a good range of spirits including Chase gin and various vodkas.
