Has some reasonable beers on, Adnams, Punk IPA etc.. Wouldn`t call it a real student pub though...they`re all in the S`oak. smattering of youngsters but mainly old blokes and shifty types. Staff too laid back and regular friendly..no good for a stranger in town!

Something has gone very wrong with this pub ever since Stonegate pub co took it over (along with all other M&B "Goose" pubs) The food is still the same crap but only 75% dearer. Constantly changing staff -all students - are vacuous and have no incling how to serve beer. Mindful that this is a student pub it is really bad considering I have been drinking in here for the thick end of Thirty years! Real ale - don't go there

Has a Spring Ale festival at the moment until 5 May. Otherwise for those going in during the morning, coffee and a bacon butty for 1.79. Formerly the Old Varsity Tavern, tiling outside says Holt's Bournbrook.

One of 2 pubs in Selly Oak on the Bristol Road that has real ale on tap, the Goose is also one of the cheapest. Why? Because the ale is mostly pretty bad. I've heard they don't clean the pipes out properly, which would explain it. However, it is VERY cheap. The music's never too loud and the food isn't bad. The toilets are horrendous though. Avoid the beer on tap (or just hold your nose when you drink it) and it's a good, cheap pub. Otherwise, you're better off going elsewhere.

superb value once again from the goose brand,i never associate this chain with decent ale but my perceptions are beginning to change especially now they have gained cask marque status,five ales when visited feat marstons pedigree,marstons epa(1.59),wells bombardier,t Taylor landlord,and skinners "paddy's pride"(2.10) which i opted for ,the three barmaids were very pleasing to the exe like the prices,cannot fault 8/10
