Solihull Nightlife

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wetherspoons Solihull is a your typical Wetherspoons pub, its got no music playing. The drinks are about average price, and when I was in there i found that it was rammed (but i did go in there on the last day of work before Christmas with people from work). Personally unless im with really good company I wouldnt go there unless popping in somewhere for a quick one or two drinks.


    Dress Code: During the day they can be quite leanient, but during the evening, smartly dressed or they wont let you in.
