Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Always busy pub-restaurant serving great pizzas and excellent brunches, plus a fine selection of ale, wine and whisky

Sitting pretty in the suburb of Harborne, The Plough is one of Birmingham’s favourite pub-restaurants, with a lively atmosphere and fully occupied tables whether you visit on a Tuesday or a Sunday.

Harborne high street is lined with pubs, but The Plough wins hands down for a number of reasons. The venue manages to be both smart and relaxed at the same time, with that warm rustic feel that marks a good gastropub. Even the outdoor seating area feels like a well-decorated extension of the place.

The food and drink on offer is varied, and includes some excellent pizzas (two for £11.75 on Mondays), delicious burgers (two for one – roughly £11 – on Tuesdays) and its brilliant brunches.

The wine list is extensive, and the cask ale selection has won repeated praise from CAMRA. Recently, a 'Wall of Whisky' has been launched, showcasing over 50 different drams from around the world.
