Great architecture, decent Fullers ales, but donít waste your time coming here when itís busy. There are never enough staff and the ones they have are frankly useless and totally disinterested. They donít care in what order they serve people and you could die waiting for a beer at times. I walked out after my most recent visit and will be going only on Sunday afternoons in future! The manager needs to be a lot more careful about who he employs, or maybe he should try and poach some staff from the Wellington. The quality of staff at these two City centre pubs could not be more different.

A very nicely decorated pub, situated in a former bank. Fullersí most northerly pub, with ESB, Chiswick and London Pride always on tap. You can also get Fullersí seasonal range featuring the likes of Honey Dew, India Pale Ale, Summer Ale etc. The pub also keeps one tap reserved for local company Beowulf, which changes constantly to showcase their latest brews. A good choice in Birmingham City Centre.

An incredible interior, but a soul-destroying atmosphere, very busy and full of business types in the early evening. Only Fullers beers available, and I can get those at home.

Very big place its was an old bank building with a big dome, Fullerís range with some guest beers. You must see this for one beer and then go to Wellington.

Went here after going to one of the festivals at the nearby Wellington. Very impressive old building with an amazing high domed ceiling and lots of gold leaf embellishing the walls. Good range of Fullers beers available (sampled the ESB) and a solitary Beowulf pump. There was a nice relaxed ambiance about the place, very pleasant.

Stunning old building taken over by Fullerís and developed very tastefully in my humble opinion, this place is an architectís wet dream. Aside from their own stable of ales, you will find a few guests but since I love Fullerís beers I didnít bother. ESB and Seafarerís were both good and I ended the evening with a bottle of the London Porter, excellent. Prices are more in tune with London and this may well put some people off. Definitely will return on my next visit to Brum.
