An average sort of Spoons, in a nice art deco building but in need of a freshen-up. It does at least have an outdoor area at the back and the toilets are on the ground floor! There were 5 guest ales on for this visit, 3 of which were from Salopian.

t's been over 11 years since my last visit here, but I thought I would pop in for a swift one, after checking into a hotel a little further along Broad Street.

Locals I spoke to rate this as one of the better Wetherspoon's in Birmingham. For me, I can't think of one decent 'spoon's in Birmingham.

As previous reviewers have said, this is an old-style open-plan branch of the chain with exactly the kind of customers you would expect to find inside.

The usual ales were on - Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best & Sharp's Doom Bar. In addition, they had 3 guest beers - Titanic White Star, Froth Blowers Sporting Times & Silhill Blonde Star. Ciders were Weston's Old Rosie & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon.

Visited earlier in the week. This is an old school Spoons, full of daytime pissheads of retirement age. At the bar, the Spoons usuals plus guest ales and a cider - the guest ales being priced at a very reasonable £1.99 per pint or £1 for a half. The barman looked a bit fed up.

There are plenty of indiscreet security cameras all over the place. Beer garden to the rear. Had a bit of a piss and hemp smell in the bogs, despite the door being propped open.

Not really much to rush back for, but the ale selection and pricing meant I didn't regret my visit.
