Kings Heath has a developing independent food scene that’s well documented on my blog. Of which Fletchers Bar and eatery on York Road is a quirky addition.
Kings Heath is very good at supporting local and diverse businesses. Offering an individual and creative platform for eating and drinking that has now been noticed by
Independent Birmingham and its IB discount card.
Over the road from Fletchers is the Hare and Hounds pub and Cherry Reds, with Byzantium tapas next door.
Fletchers bar and eatery has a strong food menu with good vegetarian options and a good mix of drinks. It is the stay out late sister of The Kitchen Garden cafe where Blue Rabbit bistro is located. See previous review.
Fletchers, Ruth and i found on our midweek visit is a friendly laid bar serving food, bar snacks, cocktails, spirits, and good wines. Including a lovely gin martini and Manhattan.
On our arrival we found a quiet bar that quickly got busier as the evening went on. The wooden tables and floors give it a rustic lived in atmosphere and look.
More of a country bar than traditional pub, more quirky, knowing and independent. Fletchers felt homely, and comforting after a busy day at work, a place to unwind.
Fletchers bar and eatery has a beer garden that is sheltered under trees that have fairy lights in them and surrounded by potted plants in the courtyard which makes the space feel like an oasis, with a chilled vibe.
Fletchers bar has a good selection of food for vegetarians. Including a veggie burger, salads, Aubergine Parmgiana and an interesting small bites tapas and flat bread menu that has a few options. Fletchers also has a changing specials board that includes veggie options. The menus change frequently so this keeps it fresh, interesting and seasonal.
On the night Ruth and I both chose vegetarian. Ruth chose the
Aubergine Parmgiana which she enjoyed. it had a good tomato flavour with the right amount of aubergine.
I ate the Halloumi and Aubegine burger.
The burger was excellent served in a firm bap. It had a good flavour, the combination of the Halloumi which was cooked well contrasted the silky aubergine felt indulgent. Served with some excellent home made chips, it felt a good choice and quite filling.
Fletchers have a few real ales I tried Ringwald Boon Doggle which harmonised with the burger well. They also often have s Purity Beer or two.
Fletchers also have a good cocktail list which we’ve sampled on a weekend and a good wine list that they are proud of and which seems to go down we with customers with their food.
Fletchers provides a relaxing and intimate space, its very quirky, and an interesting place to spend time. The service is very friendly, charming and attentive. It’s a great place to catch up with friends, to dine as a couple, I even saw single diners. It’s perfect for a pre dinner drink when in the area as ruth and i have experienced and even a post one before home. It is open for lunch.
The food is solidly good, it has plenty of choice. The small bites look fun. See website for menus.
I found Fletchers to have the right balance of business and chilled, with a good and varied drinks menu.
Fletchers bar is very Kings Heath and pleasantly addictive.
An eclectic find.

Ruth and I used our independent Birmingham card to receive 10% off our bill.
Ruth and I paid for our own meal. The opinions are my own and honest.
