A good traditional pub. 2 roomed but one room is split into 2 with a wooden partition separating these areas. A total of 9 handpumps on the bar in 3 banks of 3. Beers today were from Wye Valley, Froth Blowers, New Work, Revisionist and Weird Beard. The place was going through a refurb and each room was being refurbed one at a time.

Gave it a second go...This time, it was the 4th pub in and again, a shocking pint was served, which went straight back. Is it me? Won't be going back.

This was the second to last establishment on our recent 8 pub blast round Brum and I don't know if my taste buds were off kilter but the pint I had was shocking. I don't think it was off, it just tasted terrible and I left it on the bar. I suspect I was unlucky as the rest of our 6 strong party seemed to get down their beer with no problems at all and we all enjoyed a game of table footie out the back. this place is supposed to be a great beer pub but my experience put me off a bit. Might give it another go if I'm in the second city again.

Last of four pubs in the Digbeth Area for me.

Very much the sister pub of the Old Swan - same red brick, similar lay out.

Lots more real ale on - to the point of confusion, as some pumps had two clips on!

Decent enough boozer and would come back.
