    A pleasant surprise
    Dropped in for a pre-gig pint and bite to eat. We were delighted by the quality of the food, all clearly home -made and cooked to perfection and at an unbelievably affordable price. Drop a star for no real ale, but still plenty of choice.

    Great staff
    Me and a large group of uni students attend here on our lunch break for some R&R I have to highly recommend Danielle (kitchen staff) her personality is very welcoming and friendly and her customer service is impeccable . This girl alone is the main reason us as a whole class of students enjoy coming here every lunch time we attend our lectures. If it wasn’t for her we would have gone elsewhere cause no matter the day she is always the most friendliest and happiest face of the place she really is a whole VIBE! We urge everyone to attend here— her hospitality is out of this world! Thanks for being you Danielle & the big bulls head 😊

    Great local pub with well prepared, honest food.
    Popped in whilst waiting for a concert to open at the O2 Institute. From the outside we were unsure what to expect - it appeared to be in the process of being repainted and looked unloved. Inside though is a lovely traditional pub, very honest looking and somewhere you can easily relax. My wife and I decided to order some food along with our drinks and we were really impressed with the quality. Burger was fantastic with generous portion and quality meat; similarly was my wife’s fish and chips. Will definitely pop back in here whenever we are nearby.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

6 of us walked in to the pub and as we'd been drinking already at other venues a few of us needed the toilet so started walking towards the toilet. A female staff member approached us and told us we could not use their facilities without buying a drink. We said we would buy drinks but needed the toilet first. She insisted me must pay for a drink before we use the toilet.

One of our group who didn't need the toilet offered to buy some drinks while we use the toilets but even this wasn't good enough for her.

We told her we'd go elsewhere and she didn't seem to care. She argued herself out of at least 6 pints of beer and any chance of any of us going there again.

Popped in literally for one drink before a concert at the Institute almost next door; friendly straight forward staff, nice traditional pub, would pop in again if passing. Cheers!

Just visited this pub for breakfast . As going on national express from digbeth and it's right opposite it . Looks like a traditional pub from the outside and indeed the inside is very traditional . Bar and lounge etc . Oldy worldly almost ... which I quite liked .. the whole place looked very clean and tidy thou . And the staff were friendly and efficient . The menu had various options , I went for the standard breakfast my friends had the small. There is a bigger option aswell . I wish I'd gone for the small aswell when it came out , which didn't take long at all . It was very big .. had to give some away in the end . It was freshly cooked and piping hot . Very nice . Overall a good find for us and will definatly be using this pub every time we go from digbeth . I recommend it ....
