A huge Wetherspoon pub that runs the length of the block on Corporation Street. It can be a little difficult to find the door (tip: itís in the centre). Once we found it we were greeted by a polite bouncer who asked "a table for two?" before pointing us in the direction of the long narrow-ish area on the left. The main eating area is separate and at one end. Itís OK as íSpoons go but I got the impression that it probably caters largely to lager boys and that the presence of craft beers is incidental. Having said that, there was a reasonable choice.

Ehh do not know how to rate this one.
By far the biggest pub I found in Brum. Also a really big selection of different ales.
Felt it was more like a party restaurant.

One of the lesser of many Wetherspoon pubs in Birmingham city centre due to its location, lack of warmth in its decor (more down to the building than the furniture which is very traditional Spoon). It attracts a city centre crowd typically looking for a cheap drink, and of course they can get that here. The large glass windows at the front allow for a great view of the concrete shopping complex across the road. A choice of real ales is usually the best draw.

Typical lower end Weatherspoons in Birmingham city centre. A lot of real ales for £1.99 a pint. The staff were very attentative. However my first selection of beer was not available despite the pump showing as available so I settled for my second choice of Ostlers Summer Pale Ale. Some heavy drinkers were present as per usual in here.

A thowback to the í80s complete with carpets, but at least it is well-located and spacious.

Brumís first Wetherspoons, and still one of itís larger pubs. Good city centre location, but a very seedy and grubby clientele. I would go to one of the other JDWís unless you have no other choice.
