Has undergone an extensive refit/refurb recently and is now run by an enterprising young couple who are keen to put the New Inn firmly on the Harborne map. They are doing an excellent job, both in the food and ale departments, with regular live music dates. They really deserve every success.

Ventured into the New Inn one evening recently. As mappiman has pointed out, on entering at what appears to be the only entrance, there is a strange sign pointing you in the direction of the main bar. In a way this was a blessing as it forced you to the larger more open part of the pub rather than the smaller room. It just seemed a bit strange though.

On reaching this "main bar" there were 5 pumps, 2 were off at the time of my visit. Ales available were New Inn Ale, Ubu Purity and Enville Ale. I was tempted by the Enville but decided to chance the New Inn Ale instead - £3.30 for the pint. The ale was fine.

This has more of a traditional pubby feel to it than the Junction nearby, though food seems to be a big thing here too.

I noticed a shelf in the gents above the urinals, presumably for the purpose of resting one's pint on.

Chosen as the starting point of a 4 pub crawl in Harborne.

May have peaked early.

Tiny front bar, with a sign asking to punters to go in the main bar. At least four real ales on and I went for an Ubu Purity, which was the best example of this brew that I have ever had.

Nice interior - main bar set out more for food - but a nice little drinking area in the small bar around a fire.

Recommended. Apart from the rather loud Robbie Williams swing album.

Part of the bitters and twisted chain which includes the victoria and jekyll and hyde in brum tc. Very good pubs but this one had a slight gloomy feel to it. Quite expensive and more food orientated. Still a decent choice of ales

An old Banks's/Marstons pub in a side street not far from the centre of Harborne. There appeared to be a private party for students in one part of the pub. But the front bar, despite being a little dark, was fairly cosy and welcoming. As the previous reviewer states, the beer range is now fairly good - Thornbridge Jaywick & Brock, Otley 09 Blonde & Wye Valley Dorothy Goodbody's Golden Ale. Far better than I was anticipating.
