Al Bundy left this review about The Old Crown

A very old looking pub. Multi- roomed but the lounge part was closed on this Thursday afternoon visit so it was only the bar area to the left for me. 3 handpumps were here with Hobgob, Pedigree and Sadlers Peaky Blinders. The Peaky stuff was quite acceptable. Wooden beams dominate the interior and a huge brick column sort of splits the bar in two.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Crown

This pub claims to date from 1368, and it certainly has a fine half-timbered façade. However, the story is very different inside the 'L'-shaped bar which has lost almost any character over the years. Things are a bit better in the multi-room lounge / dining areas with rustic furniture set amongst some old timbers, brickwork and floor tiling. Coffee shop to one side with its own entrance (but temporarily closed for refurbishment when we visited). Patio / decking beer garden including some covered booths. Three handpumps in operation, dispensing Marstons Fever Pitch, Pedigree New World and Jennings Cumberland. Overall, a mixed bag...

A fantastic building from the outside, especially considering its in Birmingham, as historic as it gets. Its a bit tavern-like inside, and just needs that je ne sais quoi?

Could be a lot better, as review below, but gets probaly 2 extra marks from me purely for the exterior. It just seems somebody is possibly just playing with the historic theme?

The beer is truely aweful (1363)
