    Where are we; London, Paris….Bromsgrove! You really could be in either of these places with this gorgeous Michelin-star feel atmosphere! I brought my friend who ‘knows’ fancy food and he’s already planning a return trip with his family. Exquisite food, gorgeous cocktails. Bravo Dry Spy! A local Worcestershire gem

    The Dry Spy is a fantastic cocktail bar in Bromsgrove located in the building previously known as St. John's Wine Bar. The Dry Spy is classy, snug and a sorely needed part of Bromsgrove's town centre. The venue features live music, popular and exclusive cocktails, food and a maitre'd.

    Fantastic place and such a welcome addition to Bromsgrove. The food is amazing. The drinks are a little pricey, particularly the bottles of champagne but if it's a treat, then why not. Will be back soon. Just love it.

    The service was excellent. My waitress was friendly, suitably attentive and helpful. The decor and ambiance were pleasant. The place was not busy but it was early on a Saturday morning. I had the pancakes with bacon off the brunch menu and coffee. Bacon was a little salty but still all very enjoyable.

    Great ambiance, great cocktails, very clean and fresh. If you are only after drinks and nibbles you won’t go far wrong the drinks are very good. I would suggest if you are after a full meal you eat first then go to Dry Spy to enjoy the drinks.
