Good food, friendly staff, great venue. I have had the lasagna several times, always very good, especially with salad and onion rings. Would recommend this place.

Great restaurant overlooking the canal marina. Old pub with lots of character. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ordered cocktails to start. My wife ordered nachos to start followed by grilled chicken and I ordered calamari followed by a ribeye steak. All of the food was excellent quality and flavour and served well. We highly recommend the Tap and Spile for your next visit to Birmingham. Regards, Jim

Took my dad for Sunday lunch, had a lovely table looking out onto the canal, delicious two course Sunday lunch, waiters were very attentive and funny too! Even the chef came out and asked us how our meal was. Will definitely go again!

Had a really nice Sunday afternoon in the Tap & Spile. The table was in a great position, the food was lovely ( my steak cooked to perfection ) and the staff were very very friendly and efficient. And to top the lot the bill was very reasonable. Will definitely be going back.

Very good service, good food, good real ale, what more do you want? Booked a table for Mothers Day and the four of us had a very enjoyable experience. Staff were very good and can honestly say we all really enjoyed our food including steak & ale pie, homemade spicy chicken pizza and pork chop steak. We had the garlic bread to start with and had no room for pudding. £68 for the 4 of us including drinks so very good at £17 per head especially for Mothers Day, although menu was the same as normal.

Thank you Tap and Spile for a really great time on Saturday 18th March 2017. We received a wonderfully warm welcome on arrival. Our table was waiting for us despite us being a little late. The service was lovely and the food was outstanding. My two daughters and I took my Mum for her 80th birthday treat, we were not disappointed. I would highly recommend dining at the Tap and Spile. We will visit again soon.

Food and service excellent, we were a party of four who enjoyed beef nachos for starter, great steaks and lamb chops for main and we shared a huge Belgium waffle with strawberries and ice cream for dessert which was delicious. We sat outside next to the canal before going inside to our reserved table next to an open window where we still had a good view. Would definitely return.

the service is lovely, very fast and helpful. The food comes very quickly and is always very hot when it comes out, however most of the seats are by radiators which can become very hot when eating, although if you ask to move and there is a table away from a radiator available the staff will be more than willing to move you

Don't be fooled by the bar upstairs. When you walk in to the dark dingy bar find the stairs that will take you to the restaurant. Once in the restaurant the atmosphere changes. It's relaxed and calming. The food was lovely and came out hot. The staff are friendly and accommodating. All in all a fantastic experience and wil definitely be recommending it.
