|Paid another visit on a recent Monday evening and was pleasantly surprised to discover that Monday is Cask Ale Club and all cask ales are only £2.49 - bargain!|
As noted previously there is a bank of 8 pumps, and a further bank of 3 which are duplicated from the main bank.
I went for a pint of Godfathers by Itchen Valley, 3.8%. This was perfectly fine.
The pub was reasonably busy at the time of my visit, but no issue finding a seat in a quiet corner.

|I believe this is an Ember Inn at the moment. Large pub and pleasant modern décor.|
There was a bank of 8 hand pumps with a further bank of 3 (the ales on these 3 duplicated from the main bank).
I went for a pint of Seafarers by George Gale, 3.6% and setting me back £3.20 which seems fairly reasonable. Settled clear, very yellow like a lager in colour. Other ales I noticed were Purity Ubu, Rev James Gold and Brakspear Bitter - I can't remember the rest.
A really pleasant pub, liked the music in here, good selection of ales, would happily visit again.
One thing I did notice once I had nearly finished my pint was a sign at the bar offering the option of a straight or dimpled glass. May have been nice to have been given this choice when I ordered my drink, but no big deal.

|Now a Freehouse so worth a try. Staff are pretty friendly as well.|

|Went back recently to see if it had improved. It hadn't, but fortunately as the other pubs in Harborne continue to improve, there's no need to return anytime soon. I'm suspicious of the effusive praise from "conniseur" below, particularly as that was their only review.|

|A good selection of beers is available in this family-style pub at the end of the High Street. However, other factors let it down. Wyre Piddle Summerfall, M & B Brew XI, Purity Ubu and Timothy Taylor Golden Best were all available. Sadly the Westons Vintage Organic cider was off. There is plenty of seating for the keen diners. Soft music plays. The pub is decorated in a modern style but has a bit of a hotch potch of designs and different furniture. Particularly annoying was the accumulation of glasses and plates on nearly all of the tables. A few more staff to help the solitary barman and to clear the tables could improve the place.|
