|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.|

|WOW!! I came to this pub with some family and friends. A vast improvement from the last time I visited, the bar staff were friendly and went out of their way to look after us. The cleanliness off the pub had much improved!! No nasty smell from the toilets like before. The best thing for me was that they had a good selection of beer on, Timothy Taylors was my choice, this was excellently kept, no surprise they have just gained their cask marque award. Can't wait to go back! If you haven't visited for a while, I would. Best Pub in Harbourne!!! |

|I have been visiting this pub on various occasions since I lived in Harborne in the 1970s. Since I retired from teaching some three years ago, I have regularly popped in for a lunchtime pint.|
The srevice has never been great but at least there was usually a minimum of two people serving behind the bar. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case at lunchtime and service has deteriorated significantly, seemingly since the new manager took over about three months ago. Now there is only one person serving and considerable queues build up, especially when someone requests coffee and the barperson toddles off to the machine to make it. Indeed, on my penultimate visit, an elderly, partially sighted gentleman became so frustrated at the wait that he walked out in disgust.
On today's visit I was asked to remove my flat cap by the young lad serving behind the bar, something that has never happened before. I can well understand this to be company policy, if a ridiculous one. However, when after a while I pointed out that a gentleman across the room eating a meal was wearing a hat, the barman was not interested, explaining that he had not seen him.
I won't be rushing back to this place in any hurry.
