Nov 2017 - further work here and its opened out into different bar space. Much nicer than previous & the beer, although national was good quality. Bit of an American diner feel in a Victorian setting, but worth a look and a nice improvement.

10/04/2015 - Revisit - now slightly improved and sells beer! Includes 2 real ales, Youngs bitter and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde

17/08/2010 - Very close to the Jewellery Quarter but probabaly just on the wrong side of the tracks, its now a run down local on a busy road from Birmingham (you can see the City Centre just up the hill) to the Black Country. Its an industrial side of Birmingham that has seen better days.

There is a pool table inside and some bench seating, but not at all comfortable.

There is no real ale, in fact they havn't even got a keg bitter - I was offered cider or Guiness.

A bit rough round the edges but nothing wrong with that. 2 real ales and food served.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Hen & Chickens

Quite an impressive, if very run down, building housing a right old-fashioned boozer with a twist (namely the rear part of the 'L'-shaped bar seeming to operate as an Indian restaurant). Basic furniture and decor, loud sports TV and a pool table. Rocking Rudolph and Everards Tiger (£3.20) available from two handpumps, although ordering a pint of latter results in a little confusion since Tiger lager is also available. Overall, a bit better than I was expecting from first appearances.
