Well it`s reopened just as it was (well they fixed the toilets a bit) Yes Metal has returned to this legendary shed...long may it continue!!

A true legend of Birmingham rock pubs....always the scuffiest, had the worst bogs in the World, dodgy drunk punks and metalheads (living in harmony!) lovely ladies and beer that would strip paint....and sticky carpet!.....sorely missed.

This used to be a great pub even if the gents were a "little" bit tatty (no cubicle around the sit down toilet - very open plan). I believe this is now shut as the whole area is being demolished and the regulars now seem to have migrated to Scruffy Murphys.

Haven't been here much since the refurbishment myself. I discovered Scruffies at around the same time. Only been going to Brum for about 5 years previous to that...

Costers used to be the place to go but don't go there anymore although now tom's taken over manager it has got a bit better and the pool table is back in it's proper place. only 1.70ish a pint though so not bad. Don't go in the blokes toilets!

This is an OK rock pub, but lacking slightly in atmosphere. Booze average. Toilets foul. I actually walked back out of the ladies as it stank of ammonia so badly I was convinced I was in the mens'. A mirror wouldn't go amiss either. A couple of comfy leather sofas if you're lucky enough to get in early. Not a bad little jukebox. Went in with friends from Birmingham and the only difference they and I could see was the entrance is a bit beige. Scruffy's is better for atmosphere and chatting to random pissheads.

Go to Scruffy Murphy's instead. This pub has lost all it's appeal since it was refurbished.
