Visted during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Awesome spot right in the middle of Birmingham city centre. Nicely modernized space that unusually for England features air conditioning. Something like 12 beers featured on cask including the superlative Oakham Citra Special. Service was prompt. Prices reflected the central location. Overall, a must-visit if youíre traveling though the area.

Visited several times, and for sure worth a go if you are in or close to Birmingham. Just love their black board, which get updated as soon as they put on a new beer, both in the pub and on the net :-) It was the first place, I noticed used this, years ago. Friendly staff, great variation on the beers, often very crowded, but very cosy..

wimpyjoe  (1107) Hebden Bridge, England | February 1, 2013
Easily the best place for real ale, in fact its bar sports very little else out front, although alternatives are available behind. Itís very popular at the weekend so expect to stand, especially as food is an option here as well. Located in the heart of the city center it is an easy stop on a pub crawl of several of Birminghamís best listed ale bars. The decor is a little ordinary.

jmgreenuk  (128) The Hague, Netherlands | December 29, 2012
Probably the premier real ale pub in Birmingham. They have up to 26 regularly rotating taps and a small but decent selection of mainly Belgian bottled beers. Many of their cask ales are from small local breweries and as part of the Black Country chain, they feature a few BCA ales too. The place is rather spacious but finding a seat isnít easy due to its popularity. The staff are friendly and helpful! If you are in Birmingham, you must visit The Welly!

Lots of handpumps, so many choises so little time. No music and T.V., but you can chat over things and beer with other guest or staff. Very nice place to go.

SarkyNorthener  (70) Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), England | July 24, 2012
Great selection of 16 cask ales. Prices seem to range between £2.80 - £3.80. You can take in your own food so great if you work in the city and want to save more of your money to try a beer on your lunch break. A lot of people discussing the real ales they are drinking with each other. A real life ratebeer! Great.

Came in to an oasis of ale during the England-Sweden game, footy free but what a selection, 16 ales, many from the local breweries. Busy but good natured Friday night crowd, even though they were busy, the bar staff were willing to help and assist in selection, well worth a visit when in Birmingham.
