Rub is a great environment for large groups in its fabulous party atmosphere and has some the best views over the canals in Birmingham.
Slow service even though restaurant was quiet at 4pm waited 15mins for both rounds of drinks
Great food.. big size plates just what you want none of that small portions stuff.. definitely be returning when I am next in Birmingham staff was great and quick service
Great food and great service! All 4 of us were extremely impressed with the food we ordered. Not only did it look amazing, but it tasted it too! The service we received was top notch too. Unfortunately, I cannot remember our waitress' name but she was full of banter and made us feel very welcome. If we find ourselves in birmingham again, we will most definitely be back!
We were visiting for the weekend and booked in advance. Seating was poor and the table was sticky. It would have suited 4 year olds better. Took over 15 mins for our drinks to come and elk the food was just atrocious. It was the kind of sta Ndard I would h ave expected from a takeaway not a so called restaurant. Needless to says will not be back and not recommending to anyone.
Staff were busy but very friendly and as helpful as they could be
I must say you were recommended but I was really dissatisfied with the whole experience, we waited 29 mins for drinks, the food was cold I will not be coming again!!!
Cocktails/drinks are great!! Food is pretty basic... Not very personalised service. Staff look and feel like they’re just ‘doing their job’, not like they were actually enjoying their job.
Really disappointed with the food. The tomato base on the pizzas was awful so my daughter and husband didn’t eat their meal. The fries were cold and my burrito lasange had no taste at all! The milkshake’s were not worth the money. My husband had the strawberry shake and it was actually just strawberry milk, no ice cream so syrup etc. My girls had the Oreo shakes and again nothing special at all to warrant the price. The waiting staff were polite enough and food didn’t take long to come out.
The table was sticky (eg hadn’t been cleaned satisfactorily) and the bench chair most uncomfortable, the service was Ok (not particularly great) and the food whilst voluminous was average and expensive it is no wonder that it was quite quiet and lacking in atmosphere. Having been a few times the concept/experience felt tired and poor value.
Food was very good. Service was awful to be honest. Sat in the top corner and it was very difficult to get anyone's attention. Decided to have dessert but had to abandon as we waited 15 minutes for anyone to come back to us and ended up just getting the bill. We will not return in the future.
Good evening Mr Giles, Sorry to hear about your experience upon visiting our restaurant on saturday night. Even sadder that you didn't get to try any of our delicious desserts. If you could email me at [email protected] with some more information about your visit that would be great. Kindest regards Adam
Great evening celebrating my birthday at rub last night. Thanks you so much for great food and atmosphere.
I would like too thank everyone at rub Birmingham yesterday my daughters birthday meal was amazing all because how much effort your staff put in for her. Thank you so much for singing happy birthday and making my girls day even better. The food was amazing and drinks were perfect and the staff were friendly and polite
Sign on door saying closed to private party and man by door, from party, saying we were not allowed in due to party. Extremely load music when we arrived so I couldn’t hear family or waitress. Having seen all the wonderful shakes n creations online I couldn’t work out what was what on the menu Despite this I must say that the waitress was absolutely fantastic. Went above and beyond with a smile on her face. The food was awesome with my son saying it was the best food he had ever tasted!
Really enjoyed date night here, tater tots and forrest burger were amazing!
ive been lots of times and have to say this was a bit disappointing the service was poor and slow when it wasn't busy menu items where not available and couldn't wait for the desert parlor but was very disappointed with that as half brownies on menu wernt available and then came with out the toppings as well as a long wait after one of the three we ordered came out love this place for food and the meal was top notch but very disapointed after this last experience
Our waiter made our experience enjoyable, it was a very busy evening and he catered to us all superbly. Food and drinks were amazing and the atmosphere was great. It was my first time eating here but won't be the last. Great evening all around. 💃🏾🕺🏾
Great food, great service and great cocktails. Need I say more.
I have been to Rub twice, first time was better. My only criticism the first time was how uncomfortable the seating was, wooden benches, ok if you’re in a park or at school, not great when you’re trying to enjoy a meal out with family and friends. This time however, I have a little more to complain about. I’ll start with the seats, plastic school chairs that seem too low for the table. So you already have a poor dining experience. The food comes out suspiciously quick, feels like reheating has taken place rather than cooking. I ordered pints of coke and was given small glasses as ‘we’ve ran out of pint glasses, so have these and you can refill them for free’ ok, except that when you go back to the bar the barmaid then says ‘no, you can refill with water only, if you want a coke you have to pay for one’ Nice. I then order desserts x 5, 4 turn up at irregular intervals. I wait 10 minutes, everyone is done, still I have no pudding. So I go and ask for a refund. The guy was very apologetic and helpful, can’t fault him, not his fault. The all-round experience wasn’t great though, hence I only gave 3 stars. Our actual waiter was a real good guy though, I’d give him 5 stars but due to my dessert not arriving (not him, the staff behind the dessert counter) again I could only give 3. I recommend better seating and ordering some pint glasses.
Music was a little too loud we had to shout to speak.
Food not cooked long enough soggy burger.
Table behind us was very loud and kept bumping my chair, just kept shouting at eachother down the other end of the table, apart from that was very good
Absolutely fantastic food and wonderful service as always. The atmosphere is brilliant and fun. We love to visit as a group for special occasions.
Incredible food and unique atmosphere
