The Canal House celebrated its 10th week by pulling its 10,000 pint

The Canal House pub in Birmingham city centre has recently celebrated its tenth week in operation by pulling its 10,000th pint of Budvar lager.

 The pub, formerly the James Brindley, on Bridge Street, opened on August 27, after the company behind The Botanist breathed new life into the building that had lain derelict for eight years.

Since opening, the pub has quickly become a magnet for Birmingham revellers, thanks to its extensive cocktail and wine lists, more than 60 world ales, house gin made and distilled on site, and its food menu with outstanding rotisserie.

 It’s the only place in the city centre to serve Budvar’s unpasteurised full-flavour tank beer Tankové Pivo on tap - and it’s clearly being enjoyed by customers as the bar also pulled its 10,000th pint.

Liam Carney, general manager, said:

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response we’ve had since opening and it’s clear we’ve quickly become a destination pub in the city centre. Our customers love the ambience, the look we’ve created and the private dining areas and we’re already building on what is a solid base so far.

The Canal House is now gearing up for its first Christmas, with a dedicated festive menu, available from December 1, that includes turkey hanging kebab with spiced cranberry glaze, salmon en-croûte and a vegetarian option.  Three-course lunch costs £22.75, while dinner is £27.
