“Brilliant stay”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Stayed in this old coaching inn pub overnight so that my son and his girlfriend could go to a gig in the rainbow just two minutes down the road. Fell in love with the place. Soaked in history, real buzz in the bar, great food - reasonably priced. Quirky original rooms. Amazing friendly staff, freshly cooked lovely breakfast. This should be the go to place in Birmingham for discerning customers who don't want faceless hotel rooms.

I love the atmosphere of this historical landmark at the heart of Birmingham.

There is always a great atmosphere with lots of friendly faces. I have eaten there many of times and have never been disappointed, the food is always lovely and fresh and the menu always leaves me spoilt for choice.

The beer garden is seriously the place to be when the sun is out, great summer vibe with music and quirky garden features, including a ping pong table.

If you haven't been yet, you're missing out.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The building is a fantastical example of 15th century architecture and I imagine is very rare at that. The inside is sympathetic to its tradition and history but has a modern twist. The room I stayed in was very spacious and had lots of character. The weekend we stayed was st Patrick's parade which is a great spectacle. The staff were very helpful and friendly and would definitely stop again next time I'm in brum.

I was lucky enough to stay at The Old Crown in Birmingham this summer for two nights when over for a music festival and I must say it took my breath away. To get the stay in a building of such rich history, lovely home-cooked food & attentive staff for £40 a night was an absolute pleasure.

I must say a massive thank you to all of the staff I encountered for your help with making me feel so comfortable in my lovely double room. I'll definitely be staying again!

The bedrooms are small and tight, that comes with its age, furniture is virtually non existant, shared bathroom/shower along the landing. If you stay on a warm or hot night be prepared to roast as theres no air con and only a very small window to let in any air you might hope to get.
