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

Split-level music pub with - as you would expect - limited furniture and basic decor. Pinball machine and pool table. Canal-side patio beer garden. Four handpumps, offering Church End Goats Milk (£3.20) and Sharp's Offshore IPA in addition to the regular Robinson's Trooper and Old Rosie cider.

Having spent the best part of 25 years working in Birmingham, for some reason I had never been to this pub before, which is only 10 minutes walk from New Street Station. Probably because it looks a bit ordinary from the outside and its tucked away down a small cul-de-sac at the beginning of a residential area.

Its a large music orientated pub, with bare boards making it feel a bit 'Western'y, there are views and a terrace overlooking the canal. There is a large bar following the room and signs of live bands/dj use in the evenings, in the lower bar? Friendly enough, I've got a feeling that the music would be louder than average at night.

4 real ales, which were kept well enough.

A great find for me, I would happily go back & try this one again in the evening to see what its like. Its very close to the ICC and the real aled Prince of Wales and offers a grood contrast

I returned to this pub as a friend wanted to get tickets for an upcoming gig and i can say it has improved

It remains an uninspiring canalside pub from the exterior, with patio area. Originally i t was far nicer to get a beer and drink outside than remain in, but they have made a bit more of an effort, as it now feels like a decent music venue.

The intrior is on different levelss, but is open plan, in white and wood panel, wood floor, some bench seats, with a couple of pool tables. There is now some pop art, which although not my style, at least gives a decent music heritage with; the Sex Pistols, Hendrix and Debbie Harry. Music was rock, service good and being miserable, the clientele was small and only partly scruffy.

Usual taps, but now served by three real ales; Adnams Broadside and decent Skinners Betty Stoggs and Cottage Brewery's Big Boy

Whilst i would still frequent the Prince of Wales first, this pub deserves a revisit - and with the choice of real ale, i would even go and see a gig there
