Probably a bit short notice but here goes anyway!
I will be heading down to see Everton play West Brom with a couple of mates tomorrow and we will be having a few drinks in Birmingham city centre before and after the match.
We were just looking for decent pub suggestions. We're only a small group and are not a rowdy bunch - we keep any vocal support to when we're at the match! Ideally we're looking for places with a bit of character and/or a good selection of real ales or distinctive lagers, anything a bit quirky or off-the-wall would be welcome.
Have read a few suggestions around the Jewellery Quarter (e.g. Lord Clifden, Rose Villa) which I had heard used to be a bit of a rough area(?) but times may have changed and not sure how accurate that is/was. It would bring us a bit closer to West Brom so that might make sense. Would there be any suggestions for places between there and New Street?
All advice welcome. Cheers.
