Funny little place in a light industrial area with a somewhat run down feel - the area, not the pub. Homely and unpretentious. Not doing much of a trade when we visited on a weekday lunchtime. The long-serving landlord provided a warm welcome. Half a dozen handpumps with one or two from the on-site Rock & Roll Brewhouse. These tend to change frequently and they are hard to find anywhere else - extra selection marks for that - so this place is well worth a quick stop on a regular basis.

While not a massive selection of beers, they are generally from interesting micros aswell as their own Rock & Roll beers. The pub is like stepping back into the 80s (or earlier!) and has a great atmosphere with friendly staff and customers.

Like stepping back in time, they donít make boozers like this any more. Itís a tight fit, as a wide range of characters come to try the beers that brewed on the premises.

A nice little pub a short way out of the city centre in what seems like an industrial wasteland. It doesnít look too promising from the outside but it has a small main room which is really homely and pleasant plus the Lillie Langtry room at the back, which looks like a music venue. They have six or seven hand pumps and had two of their own beers on tap when we visited. The landlord, who was sitting at the bar reading a newspaper, was very friendly and welcoming. (Visited 1 April 2014).

A proper pub beyond Birmingham Market area but close enough to Hurst street and The Second City Suite where Birmingham Beer Festival is held. Eddie runs a tight ship and itís good to see him back to rude health. The beer is always well kept in here, itís like sitting someoneís front parlour, warm and chatty. The TV appears to be always on though, not keen on that, but it still remains worth the treck through the industrial wasteland, particularly if grouped together with a trip to The Anchor and remains the only place to get Rock & Roll Brewhouse beers that Iíve seen.

Pretty central, but doesnít feel it. A bit of a timewarp and full of character(s).

Absolutely lovely place. My most recent visit was last week and my heart was thoroughly warmed by the fact that it was so unchanged. Great traditional decor, friendly customers and staff and a very well kept range of about 5 real ales. Great venue.

Visited 01/02/10. Unfortunately the Stanney bitter was unavailable, but the beers from ABC and Salamander were served in top condition - there were 5 cask ales on offer. Landlord and other customers were friendly. A good traditional street corner pub that I would visit again.

A little gem in the Highgate area of Birmingham. Run by the same landlord, Eddie Fitzpatrick, for decades. An outlet for the rare Stanway Stanney Bitter, amongst a wide selection of others from small regional and micro breweries. Very comfortable traditional furniture, lighting and decor, and I have enjoyed every visit I have made here as the staff and regulars are very friendly. UPDATE DECEMBER 2010: Visited last night (28/12/10) - final pub on Brum crawl. The Lamp has undergone a refurbishment and appears much brighter indoors than under the original decor. Five beers on plus Westons, Guinness and a good sprits range. Still, remarkably under the same landlord Eddie Fitzpatrick who continues to afford all a decent welcome. As always everything was "happening" around the bar, and last night free ham and cheese sandwiches were on offer. I had three different pints including Stanway Stanney last night, but found myself a little disappointed taste-wise on all of them, hoping this was just a "blip".
