|Normally I would avoid this places such as this like the plague, but credit where it's due, the owners are making a real effort. They have four working handpulls with some fine and rare beers (last time I was in there was the incomparable Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild) and the best foreign bottled selection for miles around. The service is good and the staff seem keen to listen to customers opinions about choice and quality.|
I still wouldn't bring my maiden aunt here but this is a vast improvement on the normal suburban pub. With the Westley just up the road Acocks Green has become an oasis in the desert of decent establishments in south & east Birmingham and both pubs should be encouraged.

|Reasonable choice of ales, not expansive, but occasionally have interesting guests. The first impression may be that there is something of an intimidating, and possibly inebriated vibe, but once a little time is spent over the first drink it is evident this is a sociable, live and let live crowd. Though I wouldn't recommend displaying any sort of attitude in here unless you're 100% confident in your street combat skills. Best to visit with modest expectations, and also beware of the sound system which suddenly wracks up the clubbing music to an alarming decibel level.|

|Lived in Acocks Green for 23 years nd never been into this pub before, due to the previous reputation. But WOW what a transformation, it has got to be one of the cleanest pubs that I have ever been to. The barstaff are really friendly and can pour a proper pint of Guiness. They have a 2 courses for a £5 menu which is excellent value. Hats off to the management thay have obviously worked very hard to get this pub here it is now. I will be back with friends. Good Luck.|

|A very locals oriented bar. Though people are friendly enough, if you're a rare visitor you'll do better if you go in with a group of friends. Once people begin to recognise you though, the place becomes more inviting. I suppose that's true for a lot of places anyway. Historically this pub has been the home of regulars, those that are used to frequenting the place at least 2-3 nights a week. This pub has changed hands a few times over the past couple of decades. Though some people come and go, the locals have essentially remained the same even though the name and theme of the pub has periodically changed. The dress code and age restriction are more recent developments and obviously for a reason. I wish the 'Inn on the Green' all the very best. I prefer the name to previous titles as it appears to be more reflective of the first original establishment. The idea of 'real ale' is also in keeping with it's more traditional roots. I hope that it makes a success this time. I guess there'll be another name over it sometime in the future if it doesn't. Good luck! |
