|A true classic. Old-school pub with a variety of ales, friendly atmosphere and good food (curries), it was also the original home of the Tindal Street Fiction Group. It is a bit hard to find or at least I found it so, although not very far from my flat so I was cursing myself for not having gone there sooner.|
I have to give this pub a rarely-awarded 9 out of 10.

|Agree with straightnochaser ( review Oct 2013) clean well run traditional pub selling real ale and Indian Food - definately worth a visit |

|The Old Mo' is a traditional unpretentious Victorian pub run by a friendly couple and is a great place for a quite drink far enough away from the weekend madness of Moseley to be able to get a seat . It features two rooms with a bar in between and an outside covered area. There's always a guest ale on along with HPA, Butty Bach and Enville Ale. Every couple of months there's a beer festival featuring around 12 ales with live music out back. Indian food is available and a juke box with an interesting choise of tunes.|

|Stopped in here for a swift half yesterday. It's a classic backroom boozer with 2 small rooms and a central bar connecting the 2. No sign of a dog. But it does have a menu featuring plenty of Tandoori food which is served daily except for Wednesday (the chef's day off). A group of lads appeared to be enjoying what they'd ordered. Beer wise, there were 4 ales on - Wye Valley Bitter & Butty Bach, Exmoor Gold & Enville Ale. My Butty Bach was fine. A little out of the way and difficult to fit into any crawl of Birmingham. But still worth the effort.|

|We are now talking about Proper Pubs - two bars; many original features; great beer; curries in the evening; beer festivals; some music and a genuine feel about it. Read all about the pub's history in the right-hand bar and note the old Ansells sign outside. Didn't come across a dog so can't comment on that. I used the number 50 bus from Moor Street station to get here (get off at Edward Road or Trafalgar Road) and the pub is just off Cromer Road. I did find the prices a bit on the high side for Birmingham (£3.15 a pint or is this the norm these days in this part of the country?)|
Anyway, don;t miss this great boozer.
