Just a couple of blocks away from íThe Mailboxí buildings of offices and strerile chain bars and eateries around the canal turn. Itís still down to earth on this road despite its closeness to the new commercial area and this transfers to its ale drinking clientele as well, all very friendly, as was the landlord on my visiting March 2017. Thereís a more than ample ale selection (although as it was my first visit I canít compare it to previous landlords), with regular íBlack Countryí ales alongside half a dozen guests from up and down the land. The bar is against the back wall, with the majority of seats against the long and side window areas, all soft furnished and traditional in design, very comfortable and a carpet throughout.

Small and locally old school English pub with carpet. Perfect! Selection of casks, some interesting drafts and bottles. Quiet ticking, like it!

Dec í16 mark 80. The pub is currently in transition after the departure of the previous landlords. There is an interim manager before the new landlords arrive in January í17. Very quiet on a Monday lunchtime. The beers are those that the previous landlord had ordered, so difficult to judge how the beer range is moving, still well kept and served.
Aug í15 mark 90. The pub get better all the time, particularly the choice of beers and the descriptions offered. Excellent.
Aug í13, mark 86. Although I have visited Birmingham many times, this area was never one on the list to go to, this has now changed. Reasonably easy to get to through the Mailbox, the escalators taking out the climb. It can be spotted from the Mailbox, with its tiled exterior. It is now a welcoming, 1 roomed pub with the bar along the interior wall and kitchens behind. The beers are from the Black Country Brewery range plus brewery swaps in general, which at the moment, are giving an interesting choice. Sharon & Chris are really keen on their Real Ales and we are sure will always be offering a good spread of styles. It will now become a regular on our irregular Birmingham trips. A great start and addition to the City Centre scene.

If I was in a bad mood Iíd mark this place down for how long it took to walk here! Having said I like the way the Victoria mixed old fashioned pub and fantastic new beers, this place probably more of an extreme. Really old fashioned pub but with fantastic beers (seem to remember food was limited to filled rolls, so 70ís old fashioned!). Didnít give it great marks for ambiance or service as seemed pretty average in that respect. But worth it for the beers.

Blazing a trail across the drab uninspired beer dessert that is Brum. Beer is the star here with carefully chosen brews from the UKís best producers, all lovingly looked after by the fanatical self professed Beer Overlord! Drink in the laidback ambience in a comfy and spotlessly clean back street boozer. Stay for a few and wait for the rest of the city to catch up!

Visited on Friday later afternoon. Location is just next to The Mailbox, very close to the main train station and Bullring. Typical Grandpaís house looking British pub (without food I guess) with many casks and some kegs. The difference is that instead of the boring average real ales they have lots of beers from the smaller, quality, new craft beer breweries.Iíve drunk two Irish ones form breweries Iíve never heard before (which doesnít mean they are not known for others), they were both really good. Canít pay with card under £5 which is a bit usual in some British pubs and can be annoying if you have time for one beer only but you donít have cash.

A rather solid old-school boozer that melds classic cask beers with more modern offerings on keg. The range of beers is great, and Iíve found interesting options on both of my visits here. The interior is classic pub, with plenty of seating and a warm ambiance. The staff are friendly and attentive. The pricing is very fair. If you are visiting Birmingham, then I would say this place is a required stop.

Having visited craft beer bars all over the world, I always feel lucky to have the Craven Arms in my home city. The choice is second to none, the keg selection always has something exciting and the cask beer is immaculately kept. The owners are proud of the beer they get into the pub and quite often manage to get something rare. They do serve local beers but one of the main reasons itís my favorite pub is because I know I can get the best beers from around the country in one place. Recent casks include Brodieís, Wild Beer, Tiny Rebel, Hawkshead, Siren, Fallen, Almasty, Black Jack, Weird Beard, Hopcraft, Shiny, Church End, Summer Wine, Steel City to name a few! Keg has included some brilliant beers from Aspach & Hobday, Kernel, Magic Rock, To ōl, Siren, North Riding, Wild Beer, Weird Beard, Brodies and more. Not only will you find the cask in perfect condition but there will be beers on that youíve never had. Fridges are always well stocked with a good range of bottles too. Itís a very traditional feeling pub but the beer is as up-to-date as youíll get in Brum...probably most places in the country!

This is a great traditional pub with an excellent beer selection and guys behind the bar who know what to recommend. The sad part is that it is small and can get very busy.
