Called into this pub on a visit to Shirley and found a comfotable friendly bar wit a choice of ales. There is a function room where live music is played. Friendly staff and has the feel of a well used community local.

Interesting place. Its awful looking from the outside, especially in Shirley which prides itself as upmarket (compared to nearby Birmingham). Its location on the busy main road also does it no favours either aesthetically or conveniently.

Inside its a real 70's throw back - dim, lots of pine board cladding, pub carpet and pattened cloth benches. There are also toby jugs on shelves. There is a pine clad central pillar with a couple of bandits around it. Some modern pubs would probably pay a designer lots of dosh to come up with this retro feel..or maybe not!

Its ok, not over friendly, but comfortable and certainly offers something different to the family pub type chain restaurants that are littered in this Solihull suburb.

Ex Good Beer Guide there are 3 real ales - Adnams Lighthouse, Wadworths 6X plus a guest, in this case Wells John Bull. Beer quality was ok and at £2.60 a pint not bad value
