Just a beautiful old bank turned fillers pub. The food is overpriced and staff donít care much but the atmosphere is amazing. Basically your fillers selection so not much exciting here.m

Visit here for the architecture more than the beer... Being from London when I travel I do not want to see Fullers... but credit to them there are always beers from Midland breweries as well as Fullers seasonal and regular brews.

Opulent Fullerís pub in the city centre. The bar area is a bit OTT on the Victoriana, but the main seating bit is more like a nice everyday pub (carpets and all). The upstairs theatre bar was closed for a private function on my visit. Ten real ales - split 50/50 between Fullerís and guests - plus a couple interesting ones on draft (including Chimay Gold). A smattering of bottles. Expensive. No football colours, as I found out the last time I tried to come in.

Have paid numerous visits to the OJS throughout the ínoughtiesí.
Lavishly restored Fullers tied house opposite the small cathedral in the centre of Brum, 3 or 4 mins walk from Snow Hill Station, 7 or 8 at a brisk pace from New St.
Formerly a bank the OJS soaks up the splendour of the Victorian age. The central bar dominates the main room, there is also an upstairs balcony area and a gentlemans lounge affair at the rear.
Service has always been reasonable, clientele local workers in the week plus others seeking an atmospheric drinking venue.
Guests always available in addition to the Fullers range.
This place used to be near the top of my list for venues on a Brum crawl, still worth a look in for the civic splendour but a number of places are now leaps and bound ahead in terms of a more varied and interesting beer range.

Great venue with island bar, vaulted ceiling and loads more original features, good range of fullers beers plus 4 guest casks on my visit. Food menu looks good but didnít eat this visit. Found their ltd edition impy stout on cask which was awesome!

Beautifully converted ex bank into a Fullers beer palace, plenty of interesting corners and very easy on the eye. The main problem I had was with the beer, it took ages to serve and I had to return it for quality, perhaps this is a one off, hopefully.
Unfortunately not a one off, it does seem quite regular in here to get poor beers.
Re Rate Aug í13. Well Iím warming to this place a little now. It remains a magnificent building to have a beer with fantastic fittings including the island bar, there is also, seemingly, an improvement in the guest beer quality, so a cautious improvement in my mark.

Reputedly Fullerís most northerly pub, the Old Joint Stock is a magnificent building (an old bank, now with a theatre upstairs) that could be Birminghamís answer to the Philharmonic in Liverpool. It has an impressive cupola, faux marble columns and sculptured busts in the arched windows over a wonderful frieze. There are several areas around the central bar and rooms at the back with Regency bow windows that open onto a patio that leads in turn to an alleyway directly opposite the back entrance to the Wellington. The draught beers are mainly Fullerís plus a few guests and we noticed that they had Fullerís Vintage Ales and Past Masters in the fridge. The only problem with a building like this is that itís like an echo chamber and, although Iím not of a nervous disposition, I jumped at the loud crashing sound every time a bottle was thrown into the skip behind the bar.

Lavishly decorated bar with the Victorian theatre house theme played on to full effect. This is soft furnishings at its finest and not to be missed - itís hard not to have a relaxing drink here. Thereís also a small back room which is just as good a place to unwind in and beyond is a back garden area for smokers. As itís a Fullers pub thereís no shortage of Fullers ales to choose from but one or two others can be found on the central bar that is 360 degrees in the middle of the main room with taps all around it. Food is served and WiFi is available as long as you own a mobile phone to receive the access code. Given the decor and location opposite the Cathedral expect London prices from the London brewer.
