This is a Victorian corner pub, formerly called the Marquis of Lorne, with rear patio area. The pub has a brick upper storey, with cream window surround and brown pediments. The lower storey has its old corner entrance, etched glass, pilasters and some rustication - it too is in brown and cream (I think, it was dark!). The interior is now a single U-shaped room, having lost the internal rooms, although there is a small side area, where there is a pool table. The room is in white, with one wall of grey-ish wallpaper. Halloween decorations were all around, but the primary interest are the Blues pictures and memorabilia. There is a dart board. The TV had Vintage TV music on, at a decent level. I believe the place has not long been taken over and the service was friendly, as were the mixed clientele - I had a good chat to a couple of them. There was a lot of good banter between the locals. Beer; no real ale, the usual tap stuff with GK IPA and Bass MILD - sadly, I ordered a shandy before I noticed the MILD. I really enjoyed my stop-off here, I found it friendly. I would happily pop back for one - next time, the MILD.

Rather poor local within spitting distance of Birmingham City ground (believe me, I tried!).

Basic and not friendly, possibly because its a football pub, members only on match days. A little run down inside. The 'Blues' folk music is ok though. No real ale.

Under new management.
