Gone for good - I visted this one to find that it had been converted into 2 or three shop units.

This pub surprised me a little. Situated in the inner terreced-house, multi-indutrial inner Birmingham ring, it is the sort of place that could have shut down years ago. Larger than it appears, there are three different areas that are opened up to each other, a pool/games corner, the main L-shaped room that follows the bar and a small, more comfortable lounge.

Ok, its inner-city and seen better days, but I think its a fine interior and has some traditional features, and would have been quite a grand place at one time.

Actually an ok Birmingham inner-city boozer.

No real ale - if it had this would be scored higher for me. M&B Mild & Brew 11 on keg.
