Left Field Beer (Internet-based)
28 GLENCROFT ROAD
“A super website with a wide selection and very keen pricing. Great service and local pickup is available. Good discounts on dented cans when many other retailers sell them for full price. Highly recommended.“

“First order 16/1/2024. Good selection of beers. Great service and comms. Definitely one I’ll look to order from again. Easier ordering by country would help though.“

“Visited on a Wednesday lunchtime in January and it was quite popular and not dead like some places. Service was good as well. 12 tap options of which half are craft. I picked up a couple of new brewery ticks which was nice. One of those beers had poor reviews on here and Untappd so I'm not sure how much they take that into account. The other one I tried was good though. Food was fantastic and although I'm not supposed to take that into account with my score, when there are so few options for craft available in Solihull it is a big added bonus.“

“Its your typical 'Spoons. Big room and fairly long bar, plenty of tables, TV screen showing covid enquiry, somewhat gloomy at least compared with the Flute & Flagon next door. 5 cask options, reasonable selection and a couple of new offerings for me. Had a half for only £1 which is daft in 2024. I spotted 3 craft cans in their fridge which I'm unsure if I had tried. Service was efficient and friendly. Worth a visit if in the area. Not that Solihull has a huge range of options! Tap & Tandoor is good for food and craft beer.“

“Visited on a mid week lunchtime. Very popular with retiree's as a food place as few tables were free. At first I thought it was a small bar, low ceiling traditional pub but when you swing around to the right on entry there is quite a spacious area with a bigger bar. The 3 cask offerings were all your standard sort including Landlord. The keg lines did have the likes of Punk IPA and Neck Oil so not just lager and Guinness. Nothing much here for a ticker.“

“Good selection (managed to find a number of new regions here), fast delivery, overall decent service. The only negative is the website - its a bit clunky and doesn't look too great either.“

“A flying visit on a Monday mid-afternoon. Certainly not busy but not dead either for the time of day and considering there is a Spoons next door. They seem to be competing for the same clientele and the beer is fairly cheap. Around 8 tap options, fairly standard although they did one Beavertown and a Lilley's mango cider. Cask wise there were 5 options, 2 of which is your standard but it looks like they have 3 rotating ones which is great. I picked up a new Black Sheep beer which was in good condition. Not bad. I cant compare to the Spoons next door yet as I didn't have time to visit.“

72 /100 SOLIHULL BRITISH LEGION CLUB, UNION ROAD
“Small, friendly festival in an ex services club. Comfortable seating, around 40 beers with a reasonable spread of types and areas. Reasonable pricing, vouchers only with redeemable glasses and vouchers. Well worth a visit the one downside is the late publishing of beer list.“

“A gastropub in a chain of two in the heart of Solihull, occupying the former Sadlers Arms building. They have 12 beers on tap of which half are craft. They do seem to specialise in locally brewed beers too which is an added bonus. I didn’t eat here but the Indian food did smell gorgeous. Prices are not cheap but it’s not Wetherspoons. Friendly staff. I need to come here more often.“

“Opened in 2021 in Solihull’s rapidly developing Station Road entertainment area. The place has a modern decor with a community feel and seating for around 30 people. They have 16 beers on tap which are mainly their own and several guests too. In addition there are a number of cans and bottles in the well stocked fridge. Friendly service and WiFi. The best craft beer bar in Solihull in my very humble opinion.“

“Огромный выбор крафтового пива из Англии, есть немного крафта из Скандинавии и немного классики из Бельгии и Германии. Цены неплохие, сайт средний по дизайну, новинки очень быстро появляются. Доставка быстрая и гибкая. В целом просто хороший сайт.“

“Have been buying from Left Field since early on in the lockdown. The have reasonable prices and tell you if a beer is getting close to its BBD, better than many online stores in that aspect. Shipping is quick, I've literally made an order and received my beer the next day. Worth checking out if you want other options from the other main stream services.“

“They serve Silhill Breweries products here but have a selection of other beers. If you are visiting earlier in the day, the breakfast menu is highly recommended. Service is good and the staff are friendly.“

“I was put onto this on line beer seller through gillhalfpint since we were in lock-down, mostly due to the number of dark beers they sell, which are favoured by many of us. The website is simple enough, there are many ways you can go through the beers but as I tend to look for new Breweries to me I went through the alphabetical list of Brewers. A little frustrating where they leave all the sold out beers in place but hey ho, I had plenty of time.I picked up 8 new Breweries, which is pretty good for me now, many American, English and a surprise Hungarian brewery. Everything I ordered arrived, no last minute changes, the packaging was sturdy, so no damage, they used DHL, which is fine by me. All in all a decent service, will use them again.“

“Fairly standard website, the usual options for browsing beers, but no account functionality though for seeing previous orders or saving your address etc. Pretty good selection of UK beers and some international, well over 400 in total, although out of stock beers seem to kept on site for quite some time in some cases. Pricing of said beers is very competitive, definitely one of the cheaper sites for the majority of beers they sell. Packaging is decent, sturdy box with dividers. Communication not the fastest but I didn't have any problems so it's fine. Recommended.“

“Looks like a Spoon and felt like that Decent cask/tap and bottle/can selection But not the best beer destination in Solihull Just a place tick for me About 15 min walk from The Train Station Choose Tap & Tandoor if you are in this area “

“Excellent place really. And by far the best beer place in Solihull Quite central location in Solihull. Ok Solihull is not a big place Just a 10 min walk from The Train Station Ok tap and bottle/can selection. Also possible to eat here. And sit on the outside when the sun shines Helpful and friendly staff. Clean toilets “

“Just another large Spoon....ehh no. It is not. But very similar And also next door to a Spoon Nothing wrong with that Always possible to find something But nothing to recommend either Just 10 min walk from The Train Station Choose Tap & Tandoor if you are in this area for a Limited time “

“Called in here on Sunday and got a lovely surprise as there was a beer and cider festival on. Managed to get seats and enjoyed our ales in this friendly micro bar. Chose Bedlam Benchmark, Hawkshead Damson Stout, Mad Squirrel Hoodwink, Purple Moose The Cob, Stealth Recluse, and Wylam Macchiato. On the X2 bus route from Solihull station.“

“This is very much in the mould of the latest Stonegate town centre pubs going right up against Wetherspoons toe to toe, this one is next door to the Wetherspoons. Really cheap cask beer with a further discount for CAMRA members. The staff are friendly and helpful in here but the cleaning left a little to be desired. There is a pleasant outdoor seating area to the front. They appear to get some choice on the local beer front, which makes it a little different from some in the chain. All in all worth a look even if it does loose out a little to the very good Spoons next door.“

“A Wetherspoons within a 60's type shopping development reasonably close to the Railway Station. There is a narrow frontage but it goes a long way back. There is outdoors seating to the front, which is quite a sunny spot, then plenty inside to the standard Wetherspoons set up. Where this outlet scores over many others in the chain is the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, really very good and an example to the rest. Quite busy but my food was quickly delivered and in good order. There are only 5 hand pumps available and only 3 in operation, so it was a keg route for me on the day. Surprisingly decent.“

“Opened in Feb 2016 and Solihull’s only micro pub. It’s situated in a former shop in a residential area south of the Borough. They have six, often locally brewed cask ales and several ciders. There are no bottles here normally, apart from wine and soft drinks. It seats about 40 people on two levels and has proved to be very popular. Great service and well kept ales. I hope this place continues the way it has started. “

“Visited on a very wet Tuesday evening on 22nd Dec 2015 before The Mighty Mariners played football up the road against Solihull Moors (we won 3-2 with our fringe and youth players in the FA Trophy). Steak Night in Spoons, so we had steak with our beers. Generic Wetherspoons design, usual old photo’s of host town and local stuff. More staff that I am used to in a Spoons’ helpful and friendly too. Beer quality was fine, as was the steaks. Local Silhill beer available (and taken). All in all not bad, a Wetherspoons trying to do things correctly with happy staff and customers.“

“I’ve been drinking here since I was knee high to a grasshopper, but i’ve finally added the place on RB because it’s certainly gone up in the world very recently. Along with a nice and shiny new website, they now have lots of nice new Cask Marque beers and reliable O2 wi-fi! They have dabbled with the real ale scene for years, but now seem to be taking it seriously with some quality real ales from micros all over the UK. The staff actually seem interested in pushing it too and are very willing offer a taste. The bar is split into two, with the old original Masons to the left as you walk in and the new, "sports bar" to the right. It’s a great place to watch football if that’s your thing. So, congratulations to the Mason’s finally and I hope they keep up the good work.“

“A typical JDW in the centre of Solihull. There are six regularly rotating real ales plus the regulars and the occasional mini festival. It’s looking a little tired these days, but its always a decent place to hang out and it’s popular with people from all age groups. They are clearly passionate about their real ales which is why I keep coming back. My only minor criticism is that the real ales are sometime a little too mainstream, but their beers are always well kept and served. Worth a visit if you are in the area and there are about 10 other pubs within crawling distance too!“

“More traditional in look than its closest sister pub up the road and open plan on ground level, this is a popular high street Wetherspoon with the usual selections. Ale is on two rows of pumps. It is possible to sit out front if the climate allows. Although not as big as its sister it stretches back far enough to be big enough for its purpose.“

“They have two regular handpulls, Greene King Abbot Ale and the excellent Tim Taylor’s Landlord plus up to three guests. Caters for families and football fans it must be said and it could do with a lick of paint. There’s quite a music scene here too. The beer is well kept and i’ve never had a bad pint at the Harvester. Worth checking out every once in a while to see what’s available.“
