Stirchley: The new night out.

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

It may be news to some, that Stirchley, in south Birmingham, is the ‘latest place to be seen’. Slowly building a cool and independent reputation over recent years, it is now a worthy destination for a night on the tiles.

My recent suggestion to a former police officer, that Stirchley is the next big thing, was met with “it’s a shit hole, only times I went to Stirchley was to drag someone out of a pub”, or a fonder recollection of an elderly chap I met in the Bull’s Head Bishopsgate Street, explained he grew up in Stirchley and told me stories of how he and his siblings would have to pay thrupence to use the public washroom, and how he was banned from the swimming baths by the one-armed lifeguard.

Well.. those were the days! Not any more though, this is the new hip and cool Stirchley (it was never that bad from my memory).

Whilst not fully formed, the signs of this suburb’s hipster (I do hate that word) slight gentrification is picking up pace and well, you really should give it a try. Easy access from Bourneville Train Station or the Pershore Road. So without further ado, here’s our tasty picks of Stirchers.

Attic Brew Co.

Tucked away, on a quiet unsuspecting street in Stirchley, exists vegan-friendly Attic Brew Co. Literally a stone's throw from Bournville train station, Attic Brew Co. has been carefully honing its in-house brewing techniques whilst quenching the thirst of many an inquisitive Brummie since November 2018. Everyone is welcome with a great selection of beers, wines, spirits and ciders to choose from.

Attic Brew Co. is dog-friendly and under 18s are welcome until 6 o’clock. There’s ample seating inside this converted warehouse, with a street food vendor in the courtyard, and various DJs, live music and art events taking place most weekends – expect a wide mix of punters from far and wide. Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


Couch is a modern, stylish neighbourhood Cocktail Bar specialising in timeless concept handcrafted cocktail menus, inspired by music. Each completely original drink is based on a different song and musician from Kurt Cobain to Kenny Rogers.

Caneat is a funky little cafe on the Pershore Rd which started out in 2017. Known for creating the best egg dishes in Brum, this forward-thinking establishment offers a simple yet inspiringly delicious menu.

From Thai Tea Malt Loaf & Cultured Butter to Braised Borlotti, Green Sauce & Toasted Sourdough. The menu changes each week with a whole host of tasty baked treats including big scones, fancy cakes and tea – Caneat offer some of the best cakes in the city.

Ask about their garden project and cancake bakery.

Cork & Cage.

Cork & Cage is a neighbourhood bar and eatery (that term neighbourhood seems to be a theme in Stirchley right now). A small but lovely bar with contemporary Turkish food and coffee from şımarık.

Now a Stirchley resident, Eat Vietnam cooks iconic Vietnamese cuisine with a twist from their compact eatery, delivering traditional flavours using the freshest ingredients. A simple selection on the menu but everything is cooked to perfection – the pork belly is to die for!

British Oak.

The grade 2 listed British Oak is an iconic pub. Built in its current form in 1926 and discerningly refurbished, many of its outstanding features have now been revealed in all their former glory.

The oak fireplaces that were once covered in dark paint have now been restored and polished so that the warmth of the original wood brings atmosphere and drama to each of the 5 rooms, all of which have been redecorated in a style that is in keeping with the tradition of this great pub, but given a modern contemporary feel. Possibly one of the largest beer gardens in Birmingham.

GlassHouse Beer co.

GlassHouse Beer co, is a hop-forward nano-brewery straight outta’ Kings Heath and now located in Stirchley, with strong family roots in the area. GlassHouse Beer co began trading in May 2017.

Since that time the brewery has released 26 beers and collaborated with UK breweries including; Green Duck, Twisted Barrel, Burning Soul, Odyssey and DEYA. The taproom is open Fridays and Saturdays – lookout for street food pop-ups too.

The Wildcat Tap.

Once described as Birmingham’s smallest pub, The Wildcat Tap moved to new larger premises with a cool design by 2GDesign (same guys who designed Chakana & Nocturnal Animals).

This mini-mecca micro-pub of craft beer offers a friendly and relaxed environment in the bosom of Stirchley. Expect a constantly changing roster of craft cask and keg ales – open every day.


Loaf has existed as a food-based social enterprise on Stirchley High Street since 2012. The team run a community bakery and cookery school, bringing back traditional kitchen skills with a focus on sourdough and other artisan breads.

Apart from various cool food pop-ups, they do a wicked lunch menu which changes regularly, but to give an idea, as this goes to press the Roast Cauliflower, pickled red cabbage, stuffing and Mozzarella pizza or Salt beef on challah with Mustard and pickles and Roast Parsnips, walnut and stilton sourdough pizza… all sound divine!
