Bit hidden away, but close to the Digbeth Brewery Tap, a corner pub with a few different areas despite being small. Homemade DJ booth, there is an outside space and the back room has various distressed former computers on the walls. A distressed look!

Different and quirky, there are 4 real ales

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

Looks like a really old-school corner pub suited to a very rundown light industrial area, but the bar and side / rear rooms have been given a surprising, if notional, 'distressed' refresh. Better still, there are now four handpumps on the counter, offering Doom Bar, Oakham Citra and pair from Two Towers - Hockley Gold (£3.70) and Complete Muppetry. Probably still finding its feet, but its good to see a place like this back open again.

Now back open and called The Ruin. Was in last night. Well worth a visit.
