A British institution that completes every major city, The Head of Steam is bringing the heat in Birmingham with a venue that hits all the right notes.

Modern yet classic, homey yet special, the Birmingham branch is a hive of endless possibilities. Like any great British pub, the bar serves as the centrepiece; and what a centrepiece it is! A stand-alone island that shimmers with pristine glasses and a glossy oak bar top, it's exceedingly pleasant to catch the start of the game before heading down to your table reservation. The dining room is also out to make a statement with a dramatic backdrop of the Birmingham skyline, hundreds of twinkly lights and even some picnic benches for those who want something super chilled.

Before we get to their award-winning beers, fill up on stellar comfort food that comes in the form of crispy stone baked pizzas, burgers, tacos, meaty showstoppers and sides worthy of any cheat day. For the pizzas, expect all the classic toppings. For the burgers, napkins at the ready for double beef patties, smoked cheese, vegan quarter pounders and even vegan shrimp. And for those meaty mouthfuls, fall head-over-heels for buttermilk tandoor chicken, rump steak and vegan lamb. Say what you like, the omnivores are really looked after here.

Finally, wash it down with any of The Head of Steam's covetable beer selections. Armed with local brews, as well as household brands and regular crowd-pleasers, this pub is steaming ahead with beverages for every mood. No wonder it's a British treasure!
