Inevitably well reviewed and it was busy on our early Saturday evening visit with seating at a premium and a queue at the bar. With good reason.
Beers on were: Thornbridge Wild Raven, Oakham Heights of Oblivion, Dr Mortons Clown Poison, Pershore Man in a Hat, Kinver First Class Stamp, Rudgate Jorvik and Hobsons Dark Nutty Mild.
Quite a range and all in good shape that we went for.
A city centre staple, close to New Street and to be included on any Birmingham crawl.

As previous reviewers have noted, this place can be a bit tricky to find. It seems to have two entrances and at the time of my visit earlier this week the more obvious entrance was near a load of roadworks. Round to the other side, the less obvious entrance is on the pedestrianised street next to Greggs.

At the bar were eight pumps, seven of which were on when I visited. I had New Ground by Saltaire, a 4.6% coffee porter which I really enjoyed and did well to stand up against the 7.3% stout I had just had at the Wellington.

I didn't make a note of the other ales on offer but did notice they seem to do a load of draught ciders too.

No music, a nice atmosphere with a few people in before 3pm midweek. Tankards and pint pots are hung up behind the bar. The floor is bare wood and there are basic tables and chairs. The bar billiards table deserves a mention as this is the first time I have ever seen one, and my initial thought was that it looked like a pool table with random holes in making it look like a whack-a-mole. Well you certainly learn something new every day!

It's a decent friendly place with good beer, and I would be happy to return.

A below ground pub with a tiny entrance , conspicuous only by its bright red door. once down the stairs you are into a single long room with plenty of seating along the walls. As mentioned below there is a bar billiards table tucked into a corner, unplayed during my visit. Also of note was the vast range of bottled beer available listed in the "beer bible's left scattered around on the drinking tables.A good selection of cask ale is also available on handpump, the most interesting range on my Birmingham Visit, I had Rat White Rat and it was a decent drop. I would say a must visit whilst in Brum.
