Glad to come in out of the cold into the cosy small middle bar. Had a very good pint of Davenports Original (also had Sadlers Peaky Blinders on but didn't try that)

Charming location and good value, basic food but, maybe I'm unlucky but have been here many times over recent years and have yet to have a good pint. Mediocre at best, not enlivened by sometimes surly service. Shame.

First stop on a small tour of Birmingham and probably the best of the 5 I tried. It looks like a small tea room when you approach and it does indeed serve cream teas. It even looks like a tea room inside, with a couple of small rooms nicely decorated with plants and the like. However, this place does 4 real ales and a couple of ciders. Yesterday, it was Sadlers Red Hoose Mild & Mellow Yellow, Pardoes Old Swan Entire & Kelham Island Pale Rider. Ciders were Westons Vintage Organic & Moles Black Rat. Sitting outside in the sunshine watching the barges go through Gas Street Basin is very pleasant. Service was fine. The pub is worthy of an 8/10 in my opinion.

Pleasant, but pricey, characterful place when not crowded by those taking a diversion from the Broad Street trail. 4 ales are usually on, occasionally at least one may rarely seen in Birmingham. The service is perfunctory and efficient at best so along with previous posters I agree the welcoming smiles are in short supply, but I'll take this pub - which is also a functioning cafe for meals and farmhouse teas - over the Tap and Spile anytime. I'd suggest dropping in for one on a warm, sunny afternoon (they do occur from time to time.) Formely the exterior used for Wilf Harvey's cottage in the TV soap Crossroads, but that lone fact shouldn't put you off too much.

Small canalside place which is a pub despite the name, in a good situation especially as the Tap and Spile seems to be shut. Narrow interior which is actually more café-like and not a lot of a view of the canal. Several beers on including Black Cat and a dark Wells and Youngs one.
