Gorgeous old pub, well run by Oakham and fortunately now safe and sound in comparison to so many Midlands pubs. A most visit just for the architecture.

I was there on a Telford and East Shropshire CAMRA outing, the place is a joy. The whole bus party were impressed from the first sight of the pub, inside it looks even better. After ordering my first pint I wondered round and loved it. Well maintained (sensitively restored in some areas), you can imagine what drinking back in Victorian times must have been like. All the beers I tried were excellant and the Thai food went down equally well. A far distance from the city centre scene, but well worth finding if in Birmingham.

Gorgeous place. As Blackhaddock says, you can almost imgaine what it would have been like at the turn of the 19th Century. Decent selection of handpump beers. The Thai food looked good, maybe next time.

Decent little traditional English pub with four Oakham ales on cask (at the time of visiting). The rest of the taps at boring macro stuff and some ciders. The adjoining Thai food restaurant is a nice touch. Service was very friendly and the prices are standard, maybe on the cheaper side. Decent place - worth a stop if in the area, but nothing mandatory.

This pub is absolutely beautiful, a real Victorian jewel, superbly restored last year, when Oakhams Ales purchased it. Has a large range of Belgian bottles, often including Westvleteren, and a rotating selection of the excellent Oakhams output. Suffers from its location - being in a slightly unsavoury area, 15 mins from the City Centre, hence itís very quiet in the week, but picks up at weekends, and the restaurant does very well. Really deserves to do well, and such is the pub scene in Brum, that itís already second only to the Anchor in my book. The landlord is great, and the building is worth seeing in itís own right. A must see on any visit to Birmingham.

Nice place, odd mixed clientele of different smells. Great prices, some of beers were only 2.6 pounds/pint. Staff were very generous with sample pours - even compared to the US these guys gave great samples. Beers were all good condition but was hoping for a bit bigger selection. Surprisingly the atmosphere was the biggest let down. Certainly not bad, but didnít feel as authentic as expected. Was there for lunch and thought food was reasonably good. Unless there is a big turn over of beers canít imagine rushing back but certainly a must for overseas visitors.

Driven past and worked near this pub on occasions for over 12 years now. Its only a 15 minute drive from my house. Yet never been until today. In one of the worst areas of Birmingham like an oasis. Beautiful interior. My visit was during middle of day and there were half a dozen CAMRA guys there. Beer was in top condition.

Ignore the location! The pub has the full range of Oakham Ales and an excellent Thai menu

Wonderful traditional pub with amazing architecture and decor, Oakham ales on tap which are always on top form and good prices. To top it off there is a Thai restaurant serving top notch cuisine. Recently has the addition of Keg and the new manager is really enthusiastic about bringing more interesting beers along with tap takeovers.

An amazingly beautiful pub, in particular the interior , wish is amazing. Good range of Oakham ales, and a couple of guests. Restaurant area serves great Thai food, which you can also eat in the bar.
