The Gunmakers Arms  

Suffering slightly from its location on the edge of the city centre, the relaxed atmosphere of The Gunmakers Arms sometimes borders on the comatose. Nevertheless, its small bar and lounge can be crammed at lunchtimes, with locals making the most of its good-value food and convivial seclusion.

As you might expect from its name, the walls are covered with gun paraphernalia - the pub's particularly fine collections of shotgun cartridges and rifles make for a handy digression.

It also boasts a secluded beer garden, with views of nearby landmarks such as the BT tower.

Where is it; where else but on the margins of Birmingham's historic Gun Quarter, just beyond the Thistle Hotel.

What to drink? Reasonably priced tipples include Bass, Banks's Mild and Brew XI. The sole lager on our visit was Carling although there is a tap for Stella when available.

To eat? From a menu full of bargains, try beef or vegetable lasagne, a tasty double egg and fries or the Gunners Lunch: cheese, ham, pickled onion and salad with crusty bread, a quarter-pound burger.



None as yet.
