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

Substantial Brunning & Price pub / restaurant in a unusual white-painted building that once housed a medical library. Plenty of different dining rooms around the central bar area, all decorated in an upmarket, traditional style. Numerous outdoor tables too in the side beer garden and rear patio. I found seven of the nine handpumps in operation, offering five real ales in a range of styles - including the seasonal Rising Sun red ale from Wye Valley (£4.45) - and a couple of ciders.

A massive multi roomed building with a decent ale selection. All the walls covered with framed photos and prints and a variety of seating styles. Being a corner property there is lots of outside seating at the rear, side and front with both patio and grassed areas. The Green Duck Close Action beer was fine.

A very impressive conversion of a fine building. Friendly staff and a good selection of 8 ales. The two I tried were in excellent condition if a little expensive. I will certainly call again.

Formal Georgian style Estate building, part of the Calthorpe area of Birmingham to the west of the city & predominantly white stock.

Square rooms, high ceiling, with a feeling of space, there is a bar at the end of the main room. They had a power cut just before my visit so they were escorting various suited ladies & gents outside. Only managed a quick look inside, there was a row of about 7 handpumps for real ale so looks encouraging.

A good 20 minute walk from the centre it is on the Harborne bus routes.
