The Lord Clifden

34 Great Hampton Street Hockley Birmingham B18 6AA 0121 523 7515

We say

On the outskirts of the Jewellery Quarter, in Hockley, resides one of Brum's Urban Art Bars – an inspiring new venture by street art collector-cum-pub gaffer Graham Smith. If the term ‘street-art’ conjures up images of kids with spray cans producing facile graffiti sketches, then rest assured this place is classier than that: against a backdrop of exposed brick, you'll find authentic and lauded pieces by veritable artists such as Banksy, Blek Le Rat and Obey. But a pub is only as good as what comes out of the handpulls, and to that end there is still plenty to go for: Bathams and Wye Valley ales keep the loyal regulars coming back for more, while the slushy ciders please the more adventurous imbiber – as does the food, which is served throughout the day from several menus that have everything from a bacon sarnie (Brunch menu) to Clifden chilli con carne (Quickie menu) to a surfeit of burgers and other main plate options such as confit belly of pork Asian spices and stilton and broccoli tart.
