Pint Shop will open it’s doors this October next door to The Wellington on Bennett’s Hill, bringing it’s brand of fresh, seasonal British produce and selection of local and national ales to the Midlands.
The listed building will be transformed into a bar area on the Ground Floor and 50 + cover First Floor dining room. Pint Shop’s menu’s will provide a new and exciting addition to Birmingham’s already burgeoning eating-out scene. There will also be an, outdoor terrace to accommodate a further 20 guests.
This will be their 3rd site after Cambridge & Oxford. Co-owner Rich Holmes explained, “We’re really excited to be bringing Pint Shop to Birmingham and are thrilled to have secured two of the city’s most experienced hospitality professionals to take charge of our new site.”
General Manager Lee Coliandris joins from the award-winning Plough in Harborne along with Head Chef Mark Walsh from Opus Restaurant heading up the food operation.
Pint Shop takes the spirit of original beer houses – namely craft beer, intimacy and fun – and throws in some killer food cooked on the coals, just as it was in 1830 and has it all delivered in the heart of the city by an amazing people.
“We’re moving into a beautiful building in 38 Bennett’s Hill and intend to keep as many of the original features as possible. We can’t wait to get the work completed and show Birmingham what Pint Shop is all about!”

ABOUT PINT SHOP
In early 2013 we found an empty Grade 2 listed office building in the centre of Cambridge and fell in love with it. The building dates from 1830 and was once a house (E. M. Forster once lived there). It felt like the perfect place to open our very first Pint Shop. 10 months later in November 2013, we poured our very first beer…..
Previously a 1970’s building society with Chinese restaurant underneath, we knocked the two businesses together and opened Pint Shop Oxford in September 2016. The first time we viewed it, it had no lights, a burst sewage drain and some furry friends running round- we knew straight away this was the place for us!
Situated in an old office building dating from 1860, Pint Shop’s newest addition will open it’s doors in October 2018.
No stranger to accolades, Pint Shop has been recognised for its focus on quality & provenance, with it’s ingredients sourced locally where possible to minimise the environmental tread of the business.
