The new restaurant will replace The Reservoir, which was a Hungry Horse pub, and located at The Common in Earlswood. Greene King owns the Hungry Horse brand along with Chef & Brewer, Farmhouse Inns, Wacky Warehouse, Greene King Inns, Belhaven Pubs, Greene King pubs, Hickory’s Smokehouse, and Flaming Grill.

Work is underway at the former The Reservoir in Earlswood, with plans to open in the new year.

Managing Director John Welsh told BirminghamWorld: “We’re delighted to be coming to Earlswood, Solihull. We’ve been serving up BBQ for over 13 years now and have welcomed guests from the Midlands to Hickory’s for over 8 years, so we’re thrilled to be opening here.”

“We cannot wait to introduce the locals to our new home and hopefully convert a whole host of new fans to all things BBQ & the authentic tastes of the Southern States.”
