Real Ale Ray left this review about The Colmore

A good sized pub with a very impressive interior, which is traditional in style and quite opulent. The main bar is positioned along the front right hand wall and is finished in medium coloured polished oak. The parquet flooring throughout was also a main feature along with button back banquette seating and a central fixed island area, with high stools and marble counter top, along with fixed Georgian style lamps. The glass and mirrored snug half way down the left hand side also added some interest and illusion from all the mirrors.
There was a dining area set out at the rear of the pub, along with a pizza oven over in the right hand corner. The basement area had a timber panelled room along with a pool table and the downstairs toilets.
Eight handpumps in operation on our visit serving 6 Thornbridge beers and 2 guest. We went for the Bad Co Love Over Gold and Thornbridge Hopton, which were in excellent condition and priced at £3.50 a pint. The service in here was excellent and the prices very reasonable for this part of town, our 12" pizza also went down well and was priced around the £10 mark.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Colmore

The newly opened Pivovar / Thornbridge collaboration was still smelling of carpentry and glue when I visited, but it was doing good business and is another very welcome addition to the central Birmingham scene. The interior is much larger than one might expect, going well back past the bar area, with a snug en route and a couple of partly screened seating / dining areas further back. With eight handpumps on the counter and seven craft keg taps on the bar-back, the beer choice is every bit as good as one would expect, and my pint of Market Porter (£4.10) was in fine condition.

New pub from Thornbridge Brewery due to open in the Autumn. Planning has been approved to convert the former Lloyds bank.

Looks like there is progress at last - It is to be called The Colmore according to the temporary sign that has gone up.

Due to open Monday 9th December.
