This place is on my Brum Crawl list and I’ve been a number of times. Cramped and different, more cafe than pub but OK. Long and thin with odd toilets. Staff a bit stand-off-ish and surly, not sure why I bother going? Usually four cask ales available, not sure about bottles never seen or asked for any. I wouldn’t have added this to the RB database to be honest.

A pleasant café by the side of the canal at Gas Street basin. As the name suggests, the Canalside Café is more of a café than a pub. Its mainstays seem to be breakfast, coffee and lunch but it does have five or six taps with real ales and ciders. It’s a tiny, whitewashed cottage right next to the Bar Lock footbridge going over to the moorings in the basin and the main seating is outside or in a garden room next to the very small and cluttered bar. As Dan says below, it’s a pleasant enough spot to watch the world go by. It must once have been a toll cottage as all boats making the connection between the Worcester and Birmingham canal and the Birmingham canal mainline have to pass through a narrow channel right in front of the patio.

An old lock-keepers cottage, by the side of the canal which runs from Brindley Place to the Mailbox. Small, quirky place, which feels like a vegetarian cafe, but serves 4 rotating cask ales and has a range of bottled local micros. Small, not all that friendly, but with a location to die for. Sitting outside in summer, watching the world go buy is lovely.
