Staff here are exceptionally rude and treat patrons with a casual contempt and disdain.Service is poor to non-existent, drinks are poor and overpriced and the pub in general has a hostile and aggressive atmosphere.Frequent only if you enjoy being spoken to with incredible disrespect and treated like excrement.
Patrick Kavanagh’s is an Irish pub, situated on the corners of Woodbridge Rd and Trafalgar Road in Moseley, Birmingham. It is painted bright purple on the outside, so you can’t really miss it. Bar prices are average for Moseley and cheaper than Birmingham City centre. There is no dress code. Patrick Kavanagh’s is set apart form the rest of the Moseley pub scene for several different reasons. The first being that is has a late licence covering its upstairs room. On Friday’s and Saturdays there are often bands or DJs playing there. Kavanagh’s lounge also plays host to a number of local musicians on a Wednesday night. There are about 12 people, all of whom play several different instruments. Wednesday nights are just jam sessions really, and the music attracts people from all over. The musicians do not get paid but are rewarded with free drinks for their efforts. On Tuesday nights it is open spot night in the bar. People come and perform, either as a solo or with their bands, in random order as called by the organiser. There is no entry fee and most acts are very entertaining. This can either be because they are unexpectedly good, or really incredibly bad! Overall, the atmosphere in Kavanagh’s is great. The décor is quite surprising and there is a large open fire in the lounge. The only disadvantage is that, due to its success, weekends are often very, very busy. If you want to sit down you will need to arrive early.
