Fairly down market in Spoons terms, fairly big (once you figure out the entrance), decent enough selection.

Visited early on 27th June 2015. Large open plan, long roomed Wetherspoons. Bar to the left on entering, kitchen doors, toilets and extra seating to the right. Tired décor with purple the main stand out colour: posters, pictures and a damp floral carpet complete the appearance. 15 Cask ales on my day, two Cask ciders and the usual keg fonts and bottles you’d expect in a Spoons. Staff friendly and smiley, customers rough and ready if a little old in general (it was lunchtime-ish). Needs some re-investment for a face lift. beer quality fine.

Brums first Spooneria. I remember coming here on opening day, circa March/April 1995, Scotch Bitter 59p a pint, old men saving their heating bills and handing over coppers to purchase a pint and nurse it home over 2 hours - it hasn’t changed that much ;). Have popped in on many occasions over the years but the recent opening of better quality, both in selection and ambiance, beer bars in central Brum have resulted in my visits here drying up. Rough city centre spoons, the only place I’ve been unfortunate enough to witness someone being glassed in a pub! Usual spoon house and guest beers, dubious clientele not one to go to unless you’re on a hardcore pub crawl of Brum, HARD being the operative word!

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: it’s 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. It’s OK as ’Spoons 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. (Last visited 1 April 2014).

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 ’80s complete with carpets, but at least it is well-located and spacious.

Brum’s first Wetherspoons, and still one of it’s larger pubs. Good city centre location, but a very seedy and grubby clientele. I would go to one of the other JDW’s unless you have no other choice.
