Rub is a great environment for large groups in its fabulous party atmosphere and has some the best views over the canals in Birmingham.
Very friendly, helpful waiters/waitresses. Great tasting food and good atmosphere. We had a fun time, it’s a great place for all sorts of occasions. I’ll definitely be visiting again
Really good atmopshere and service and the cocktails are amazing! Defo recommend will be going back soon
We came here for my friends 21st birthday. I asked if we could have the chicken nugget cake as a starter which came out within 5/10 minutes of ordering that was great!! After that, we didn’t get asked to order food for 30/40 minutes. We had to ask someone to get the server over again. When the food eventually came, they got 3 orders wrong. We couldn’t be bothered to change it as everything was just so slow. One of the girls ordered a cocktail before the chicken nugget cake came at the start of the meal, she didn’t get this until the mains had been finished. At this time she had to finish it quickly as we had been there for nearly 2 hours and had to go due to other plans after the meal.
Our table was booked for 4pm unfortunately some of our companions were an hour late and some never turned up the staff were lovely about it, I didn't really mind cause I enjoyed a few cocktails at the bar while I waited 😁 the food was lovely and plentiful we had to bring some home. all the staff were lovely and polite would definitely go again and would definitely recommend Rubs.
Great waitress (Hayley) and friendly staff. Food was good but expensive.
Food was great, really friendly staff
Excellent night, still have a tummy that is 3 times it's normal size!
Really enjoyed the food. Great kids menu. Good service. Just way too loud and rocky tables.
I was not impressed with the food. Ordered half rack of ribs and the meat was dry, possible been cooked for a long time and was not what I expected. Seems like the ribs were cooked and left in the heat which normally turns the meat to be hard rather than soft and juicy. Restaurant has changed a lot since I last visited and not really looking forward to return.
The place is great if you are a couple but for large groups the service is slow to take orders or bring your orders and drinks we were waiting for quite a Bit so on that part the service wasn't great but food and atmosphere was good
First visit to Rub, definitely not our last.
Ordered a Coke and was offered Rub Cola which I was told was the same. It was definitely not the same and had a horrible vanilla flavour. A beer was £5.50! Ribs and chicken were bland and not much flavour. Chips were not seasoned and all soggy and cold. Seating is on childrens school chairs. Overall not good value for money. £35 for two of the cheapest mains and drinks. No extras.
We were a little worried as we'd heard some bad reviews recently, but the sevice was absolutely excellent, the girl serving us was so attentive and caring and really went that extra mile. It was Owen's 13th & Olivia's 16th Birthday, we couldn't fault the service and the food and drinks was equally good, delicious. A really great late lunch! Thank you
Hi Deborah, Thank you so much for your amazing review, we're extremely happy to know you chose our restaurant to celebrate not one but two very special occasions. Come back always! Kindest regards, Rub.
It was mine and my boyfriend's first time coming to Rub Smokehouse and we absolutely loved it! The food is was amazing with such a great atmosphere and the waitress was so lovely and helpful! We will definately be coming back and I've also recommended it to friends and family!
Hi Beckie, Thank you for your amazing feedback. Come back always! Kind regards, Rub.
Food and service were great. Will be back
Hi Osvaldas, Thank you for your lovely review. Come back soon! Kind regards, Rub.
Brilliant atmosphere and vibe, like how spacious it was and you didn’t have to sit too close to other people. Staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you.
Hi Sarah, Thank you for the amazing feedback, we really appreciate it! Kind regards, Rub.
Over £25 worth of drinks that we didn’t have had been added to our bill, they were removed but it makes me lose trust.
Hi Sharon, Thank you for your feedback. We're extremely sorry to hear there was some confusion with your bill, however we can assure you that if drinks were added to your bill it will have been by complete accident, we would never charge any of our customers for items they did not consume, this is both illegal and just outright immoral. We hope this does not deter you from returning. Kind regards, Rub.
Really enjoyed our food and the brownies were epic nom nom
Hi Victoria, Thank you for your lovely feedback, why not try our sister company Brownie Heaven? You can order delicious brownies straight to your door either for yourself or as a lovely present! Kindest regards, Rub.
Staff were very very good about us being on a tight schedule to make the cinema on time. Thanks! 👍🏻
Hi Jamie, Thank you for your amazing review, we're happy to hear we were able to accomodate your needs and get you to your film on time! Kind regards, Rub.
Staff are great. Seats are uncomfortable regardless of them looking good.
Hi Andrew, Thank you for your lovely review, it's always great to hear how well our staff do. You'll be pleased to know we are planning on changing the seats, we don't have a date just yet but it will happen! Kindest regards, Rub.
Great food, very friendly staff. Music choice was a little ‘interesting’ at times, but nothing too bad.
Hi Simon, Thank you so much for the lovely review, it means a lot to all of us here at Rub Smokehouse. Come back always! Kindest regards, Rub.
Toooo full on food yet again lol, always love coming to Rub and try something different each time, wish you did the Steak Nuggets every day because I can’t get to try them on a Thursday! Love your cocktails too!
Hi Jonathan, Thank you so much for the awesome review, we really appreciate it. It is a real shame you can't seem to try our steak nuggets, if you happen to be planning on coming in anytime soon please get back to us at [email protected] so we can try and arrange some steak nuggets for you to try, regardless of the day. Kindest regards, Rub.
Great food, well cooked and well presented Portions were huge. Although it was quite empty it was still a great exsperience. Staff could do with being informed of promotions displayed on social media, as i was told at first no tuesday discounts were available; baring in mind id seen it online.
Hi Donna, Thank you so much for the lovely review, we have taken your feedback into consideration and we will look into it further, as your opinion is of extreme value to us. We hope you return again soon. Kindest regards, Rub.
Had a great night. Food,service, drinks all excellent!
