Itís a Wetherspoons. Good value, but the beer tastes like itís going off.

Medium sized Spoons, reasonable selection. OK for the chain.

A typical Wetherspoons, but personally the nicest of three Iíve visited in central Birmingham. Is also a JDW hotel and next to the Wellington.

A large, quite elegant art deco style Wetherspoon pub in the city centre. The front windows open out fully, which can be quite pleasant on a hot day. We didnít find any new beers amongst the 8 or 10 taps but the selection was reasonable enough. (Visited 8 July 2013).

Better than average for JDW. Holds its own around the beer heaven that is Birmingham City Centre. Staff handle large crowds impeccably (City and WBA were playing at home the day I went, plus cricket on at Edgbaston). Not many real ales on but a good choice of foreign taps & bottles.

The best JDW in Wolverhampton, near the better Real ale bars. Looks OK inside, with an OK selection. Very good customer service.

Party place. Anyway a nice selection of different ales. Very close to Wellington.

wimpyjoe  (1366) Hebden Bridge, England | January 29, 2013
Also a hotel, this is one of the better and more relaxed of the city centre Wetherspoon pubs, especially in summer when the front windows open up completely to give the front area a terrace feel on one of the less busy streets in what is still the commercial heart of Birmingham. Obviously it can busy, but often itís easy enough to find a corner for a quiet drink too and a half decent range of ales are available.

No problems with the beer quality or staff: this is a typical Spoons except they always seem to have enough staff, which most reading this will know is not typical Wetherspoons at all. The place is always so dark inside: that is my beef with the joint: you know what you are going to get when you walk into a Spoons, you just canít see it in here!

Possibly the best Spoons in Birmingham, certainly the oneís we have been in anyway. There is generally a reasonable range of beers, handy for a breakfast and we have stayed in the attached hotel which was decent value, although the lift never worked. Itís reasonable.
