A rather nice JDW in the centre of Solihull. Itís a late opening place that generally caters for a younger crowd. The decor is rather tasteful and pleasing to the eye. They generally have 3 or 4 rotating real ales plus the regulars and a selection of "premium" lagers for a price. The service is sometimes poor, but generally ok. I drink here often and keep coming back, so thatís the best compliment I can pay this place. The wi-fi has not worked for months though, which is a big shame and generally means that I will leave earlier than I might have done.

The grander of two Wetherspoon pubs in close proximity in the town centre. This one occupies a grand building well converted on two levels including a small upstairs bar. The seating area upstairs which includes a dance floor is arguably bigger but certainly more detached from the comfier soft furnishings downstairs that include some bookshelves at the back. The bars have enough real ales to keep you going, mainly on two rows on the lower level.
