Visited on 11th June 2016. Nice looking pub on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter. It is well decorated and has a few rooms. The bar area is nicely done. Had the rugger on TV. Bench seat around the outside along the wall. Beer range had 4 cask beers and a mix of keg beers from Budvar including the Imperial a house beer from West (West West rebadged) plus a couple of others. Beers were well looked after. Prices higher than other places locally. Didnít eat but food looks great value. Really liked the pub as a venue. Beer range swayed me enough to want to go back but not a special trip.

Four casks and various macro kegs and some less widely available kegs including their own lager brewed by freedom. There was also a couple of ciders in a bag in a box with a small selection of belgian bottles. The service was a little hit and miss. Only one tick on cask and a keg plus a cider for me. Clientel on a sunday were mostly the sort you would see in a friends coffee shop. Not my sort of place.

Posh pub in the Jewellery Quarter, owned by the Urban Art Bar chain (which also lays claim to the nearby Lord Clifden). Two bars with a friendly vibe in the front public and a confident affluence in the back (hidden from view, a great place to snuggle with your newest affair if thatís your thing. I wonít judge.) Expensive for Brum. Four casks and various keg: unexciting but there may be some odd pickups for the ticker. I had Budvar Yeast here a few years back in my pre-rate days, nothing so good here at the moment but you may find something to tick. Worth going to on your way to the Black Eagle or a couple of other pubs in the area.†

Sister pub to The Lord Clifden, front bar, back bar, upstairs area and a beer garden. Good quality food. Serves Bathams Best Beer though a bit pricey!

I visited here on Monday 18th March 2013. The place was very quiet save for me and one other customer who came in shortly after me. Beer choice not huge but the Salopian Rhapsody was certainly one of my favourite beers of the day. This pub is quite small though I only went into the front bar I never ventured further but thought I could also see some customers in a bar at the rear of this pub. The barman/landlord was friendly, pub tidy, it was a pleasant stop off and being close to the Rose Villa which itself is then only 4-5 mins from The Clifden. It is clear that this area has a nice little pub crawl and given more time I would have sniffed out a few more around here.

A recently refurbished city centre pub in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter which retains all they style and atmosphere of a bygone time. There are 16 taps including 5 or 6 regularly rotating real ales including beers from some smaller micros. The pub is owned by the Urban Art Bar group and they also sell their own beers too. Well worth a visit.

Largish pub within the Jewellery Quarter, nice and comfortable, friendly, smartly refitted but with a small array of beers. This appears to be an interesting pub group building up, they seem to have the knowledge about the business, worth keeping an eye open for them.

Not as good as their sister pub- The Lord Clifden but still a good edition to the Jewellery Quarter. Bathams is often available which is a bonus.

Sister pub to the Lord Clifden, with the same tasteful refurb and decked out with modern art. A few real ales and nice, traditional surroundings. Nicely located in the Jewellery Quarter.
