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

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.

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.

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.

Visited on 01/02/10. Only 4 ales on offer, two being the JDW standards of Ruddles and Abbot. Not a pub I would rush to revisit and certainly not a stand out for Wetherspoons.

Friendly Wetherspoon, not only handy for a food stop but an interesting ale selection as well. It becomes obvious when you spot the features such as the beer screen they are trying to compete with the Wellington in the same street. 5-7 ales dispensed at any one time from a capacity of 10 hand pumps. The staff are keen to see customers satisfied; when I complained on the non-availability of an advertised ale the young fellow I spoke to went straight to the cellar and put another alternative on. This service is one reason the pub gets a Camra GBG entry (of course, beer range is another). I ended up staying rather longer than intended on my visit of 28th December 2009
