Why we love it

Armed with an abundance of craft beers, your favourite tapas dishes and a fanciful selection of cocktails, The Pig & Tail is your one-stop shop for a good time.

Situated in Birmingham’s vibrant Jewellery Quarter, The Pig & Tail is that craft beer slash tapas bar you’ve been searching for. Stylishly decorated with plush leather chairs, a decadent tiled bar and stained glass windows that catch the light in the best ways possible, it’s one cool and collected place that’s worthy of your utmost attention.

For beer lovers, the bar is a sight to behold. Lined with a rotating selection of craft beers, they’ve got a real treasure trove from some of the best UK breweries including Attic Brew Co., Shindigger, Tiny Rebel and DEYA. But don’t for a second thing it’s just a collection of hoppy IPAs; they keep things mixed with a range including crisp wheat beers to rich and smooth milk stouts.

If cocktails are more your thing then don’t worry - they’ve got your back. With a punchy spirit range and a knack for mixology, The Pig & Tail know their way around a cocktail or too. They’re happy to make pretty much anything that tickles your fancy, but if you’re after something a little different, make sure you ask what their latest creations are.

When it comes to the tapas, The Pig & Tail have taken a British twist on classic tapas with local and seasonal produce inspiring the dishes on offer. Expect to find pulled pork flatbreads, rare breed coiled pork sausage, and slow cooked beef croquettes with baba ganoush headlining their meat selection. As part of their fish selection, there’s often a choice fried calamari, coconut breaded tiger prawns, and mussels in a cream and meade sauce. And when it comes to vegetable based dishes, the dahl, fermented hispi cabbage, and salt baked beetroot are winners in our books.

There’s no excuse needed for a visit to The Pig & Tail; call it after-work drinks, a catch-up with mates, or a drink after a dinner date, you’re in safe hands whatever the occasion.

Great beer selection and the food is delicious, a nice atmosphere for a catch up.


The food on the brunch menu is absolutely fantastic and is great value when you consider it also comes with a (sizeable) hot drink!


Great food. Great service. Great location.


Reasonable food, freshly prepared. Would have liked something a little more filling, but that's a lesson learned for me to order something larger next time.
