As the months get colder, people are looking for warm, cosy pubs to have a nice pint in Birmingham. According to Tripadvisor, these are five of the best.

It’s getting chilly in Birmingham, as we move closer to winter but if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So, why not treat yourself and warm up inside one of the city’s cosiest pubs?

And what better way to get in the festive spirit than with a glass of mulled wine or hot toddy in hand, escaping the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. It helps that Brum is home to plenty of welcoming drinking holes to disappear into when the crowds become too much.

We’ll be taking a look at all pubs in Birmingham with warm interiors and putting the very best on this list. If a pub has a roaring log fire, that’s a bonus!

We won’t be including any pubs or bars with a Tripadvisor rating lower than ⅘ and we’ll also be discarding anywhere with fewer than ten Tripadvisor reviews.

We’ll include the rating  pubs received on Tripadvisor and where you can find them, to help you decide where to head to first. And because reviews from people who’ve actually been there are so important, we’ll also be sharing a couple of things punters have said about the place.

With a long winter on the cards, these places should be just the ticket for months to come.Without any further ado, let’s get into it - here’s five of the cosiest pubs and bars in Birmingham.
