Interesting pub this one.

Now on the periphery of the NEC complex it has that feel from the outside and has been drawn into it. There is a strong commercial centre feel here even though it could be classed as the country. On a new(ish) dual carriageway feeding the NEC, there is a Holiday Inn next door and the access from adjoining smaller road has been closed. The car park has a barrier warning you only get 30 minutes free, though I believe the pub can stamp yopur ticket after this time to get you out. The Birmingham Business Park sits at the back, you can hear the nearby M42 and the local landfill is obvious to the nose.

HOWEVER, once inside things are very different for me. Its a Vintage Inn and I must admit to having a soft spot for their interiors. Large, different areas, lots of exposed brick, smell of a real fire. Very comfortable, there is an obvious preference to food but also comfortable just for a beer, of which there were three different real ales, not bad for this group. Prices could be a lot worse, I had a very pleasant pint of Harvistoun Bitter & Twisted sitting on the sofa.

Contrasts evident here between in and out, I would definately return.
