Sry that should be 'Snow Hill' Station.

Been here a few times and it's always an affordable option for lunch with a wide range of sausages (regularly changing) available including venison, beef and veggie options. Good sausage sandwiches with chips (under £5) and toad-in-the-hole etc. (salads are to be avoided though). Young friendly staff and decent range of guest ales.

Good atmosphere and tends to get busy at lunch times with local office-workers. (like the Old Joint Stock only smaller.) Fancy decor, high-ceilings and immaculate toilets! (Toilets are upstairs though so maybe not so good for the disabled.)

Maybe not worth travelling a long way for (lucky dip perhaps?) but very close to The Old Joint Stock, The Wellington and less than five minutes walk from Moor Street Station. (In the city centre so not far from major shopping areas.) Easily better than the Stock for lunch and easy for the editors to visit given its location.
