I've been to the Westley and the Spread Eagle. But the Inn on the Green has to be the best pub in Acocks Green. The locals do look at you a bit strangely when you walk in and the bar staff seemed a little experienced. But the ale range is good - cask, keg and bottles. Cask ones were Anarchy Citra Star, Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild, Colchester Metropolis & Grain Blackwood. There was a cider pumpclip for Barbourne Crimson King. But that was off. The Blackwood was nice though. A good stop off for me on the way to the 20th Egham Beer Festival.

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.
