Dinner at Drakes?

Advantages: Delicious food, good access for all, clean and tidy throughout
Disadvantages: Not particularly good for vegetarian diners!

Review of Drake's Drum, Birmingham

Eating like a (Black) Horse!

Advantages: Children are welcome as long as an adult is eating, a reasonably pleasant atmosphere

Review of The Court Oak, Harborne, Birmingham

Such a Revo-lting place!

Advantages: Spacious, looks nice inside
Disadvantages: Lack of service, pricey
