Moseley’s newest bar opened its doors on November 21st. The South Birmingham suburb is awash with newish bars with a healthy leaning to serving good food in revamped buildings.
Hot on the heals of The Dark Horse and The Village
The One Trick Pony Club replaces O’Neils on the Alcester Road, and brings American style diner food to Moseley Village.
It’s owned by small chain Castle Pubs who own the nearby The Fighting cocks Pub and the Junction in Harborne.
The One Trick Pony’s menu is named Ruby Jean’s with an american diner twist and has a very healthy vegetarian list of options including veggie breakfast and burgers and sharing plates. As you would expect in Moseley and nearby Kings Heath, vegetarians are well catered for and along with a varied meat menu looks a brilliant place for groups and couples.
The focus is thus for meat eaters on ribs, hot dogs, and burgers.
For ale enthusiasts their is a keen menu including my favourite Thwaites Wainwright ale, plus local purity brewery beers and Doom Bar. Plus guest ales.
On Tuesday’s every week, they have announced 2 for 1 on Burgers and roasts on Sunday (unsure as yet on veggie option)
From photographs i’ve seen so far the bar looks posher and more sophisticated and modern than O’Neils which was dated and had had its day. Therefore more like The Dark Horse and The Village in design.
The One Trick Pony Club looks food focused and with a chilled decor looks as if it will become a firm favourite in Moseley and the surrounding areas of Birmingham.
The Veggie food options via their menu on their website http://www.onetrickpony.co.uk are:
Snack and Share: A good looking Veggie board for £11.50.
Includes 4 Hippy Sliders, fried halloumi, Tempura vegetables, Nachos, Chipotle Jam, Guacamole and sour cream dips.
Plus Nachos, Chilli Fries, Chips and dips
On the main part of the menu there is:
-Hippy Humous-Spinich, lentil, humous
-A Shroomaloomi- Flat Mushrooms and Halloumi burger
-A Hippy Deluxe- Flat Mushroom and Emmental burger
-A veg Mac and Cheese
-Veggie Sandwich- up to 5pm only

Which in my book is a good selection :) Food will be served until 10pm.
I’m Looking forward to reading further reports, and sampling some of the veggie options at Ruby Jean’s Diner.
