Another great pub visited on the PuG tour as mentioned below and like Steve below didn't hang around too long as train departure time was looming, had time for a nice Blue Bee Parkwood Porter. I would like to visit again in a more relaxed condition, as it happened we missed the train anyway.

This was also my last pub on the recent PuG crawl of Birmingham and was sadly only a fleeting visit due to my train time out of the nearby New Street Station (Google Maps has it as 13 minutes, I did it in 10), but I saw enough of this fine interior two room pub that it was a great move saving this one from possible permanent closure. Well described by others I wont try to add anything except to say that my final half of the day of the Church End What The Fox's Hat was a good one.

I can't add much to that below. One item on display is a large photo showing the comparison between the pub in its former, vandalised state and how it appears now; it just goes to show what can be done when all seems lost.
I had an excellent half of Blue Bee Parkwood Porter for a reasonable £2.00.
This is a must-visit if in Birmingham and was the final and favourite of my 10-pub crawl.
