16 quickly changing cask beers with 4 devoted to Black Country beers, order by pump number, very traditional, but has has an upstairs bar area with a pleasant outdoor decked area, I also believe they have sky sports now, always full of tickers at 10am, bring your own food, always guaranteed scoops of varying quality.

I seem to be in the minority in finding this place is nowhere near as good as it used to be. Itís always been a very male, very middle-aged, very traditional place (not necessarily a criticism) but there seem to be more idiots than I remember, and both the selection and condition of some of the beers is distinctly sub-par sometimes, Citra notwithstanding. BYO food, decent bar snacks, great whisky selection, mixed bag of staff, reasonable prices.

Around 18 ales on handpump in the ground floor bar. Order the ale by the number displayed on the large flat screen. More recently a bar upstairs with a smaller range of ales has been opened. Bring your own food in to the pub. Only a few minutes wlak from New Street station.

Wide range of beers on a flatscreen tv telling you info, friendly staff and nice old home atmosphere. Older crowd of reserved drinkers rather than a hopping youth hangout. Nice beer

Excellent Pub, the only place I know sells Citra on draught regularly. They donít serve food but they will provide plates, knife and fork if you want to order in. My favourite Pub in Birmingham for good beer.

Great pub on the city centre with a wide range of beer from every corner of England and further .. Top condition of the ales on tap and a very good service ! This pub really worth a visit for selection,atmosphere , service and quality .. On plus I can add the honesty of the staff that kept aside my iPhone when I left it on the bar and got out .. Thanks again !

Another top pub in Birmingham. Good to see it is still going strong. Large selection of ales and I love the way they supply plates and cutlery for you to bring a take away to eat in! A place to rub shoulders with brewers and fellow beer geeks.

This has been an institution in the Birmingham Real Ale scene since it started up a few years back. Itís set in a great position between Victoria Square and the Commercial area. There is always a lot of choice, although the usuals are building up now, so the changing beers have become a little less. No food is served, but you are free to bring in your own. The place is generally pretty full at most times of day and seating can be difficult to sort out. The Bar is also pretty packed at times, although the electronic board helps in choosing the beers.
Updated Rating Dec í12. A bit of an improvement in here, the carpets have been cleaned, itís had an air through and the beer quality seems to be better. An improved mark from me and is now my new favourite in Birmingham.
Update Dec í13. The beer quality is definitely top notch now and the ambiance much improved. It remains our favourite venue in Brum for 2013/14.
