Moseley’s newest pub, One Trick Pony Club, is opening its doors today.

Replacing O’Neill’s in Alcester Road, the pub is bringing American diner-style food to the heart of Moseley village.

It is the latest in a series of revamped venues in the suburb, following the conversion of The Cross into Mo Dough and then The Dark Horse and the £800,000 revamp of The Village pub, which opened this time last year.

One Trick Pony Club has the same parent company as its predecessor, Mitchells and Butlers.

But the pub company has changed the venue from its O’Neill’s brand to become the latest in the newer, younger chain of Castle pubs.

Each Castle pub, including neighbouring venue The Fighting Cocks and Harborne’s The Junction, is different, with its own decoration quirks and unique menu.

Manager David Denton, who has previously worked at The Gun Barrels in Selly Oak and managed the Fighting Cocks for four years before taking on the new project, said: “It’s completely different.

“It’s a bit darker, a bit more posh and there’s a massive improvement in the food menu.

“In Moseley O’Neills had had its day.

“The area has had a lot of investment over the last year or so.

“There are a good few destinations here that have seen refurbishments and improvements and hopefully we’ll help in the drive to bring people back to Moseley.”

One Trick Pony Club menu is named Ruby Jean’s with an American diner twist, focused on ribs, wings, hot dogs and burgers.

There’s a Pickled Onion Monster Munch burger and a “Hot Lips Challenge” of 20 chicken wings served with a signature hot sauce.

There’s cafe-style seating outside in Alcester Road and inside bar stools are clustered around tall tables, while brown leather benches provide booth-style seating along one wall.

Drinkers will find Doom Bar, Thwaites Wainwright, a Wychwood beer and Purity’s UBU, plus Weston’s Old Rosie cider.

Two-for-one burgers will be served on Tuesdays, with 25 per cent off chicken wings on Wednesdays, and roasts on Sundays.

And there are plans for a weekly quiz night plus DJs and live bands at weekends.
