Very quick friendly service and quiet quite, which I do like, but it was a Thursday night so probably why, I could imagine it being rammed at the weekends as it close to some of Birmingham nightclubs. Very nice pint!

We popped in for beers and lunch. The food was amazing value for money, exceptional pub grub. The beer choice was very good and extremely reasonable. The pub itself is a lovely venue and well worth a visit!

Room was very nice, building is very old, but that's the whole point. We went in winter and it was -1 outside, so room temperature was also very low (there are small holes in the walls), so you should consider that if you are traveling with small kids, but in general very good experience. Also location is amazing

Stayed at this hotel with a friend. It has the coach station at its door step which was really helpful because that how we travelled up. We went to a gig in the evening and the venue you was under a minute walk away. Perfect location for us. Staff were friendly. It has a bar underneath which does play loud...

Some confusion over accommodation, problem sorted out very understanding manager , very fair. Lovely looking pub. Area very noisy outside, main road and nightclub nearby, noise expected in cities, no fault of the hotel. We did stay at weekend,probably less noisy in week. Lovely drinking scene around about.

Hi Teddy77. Thanks for your positive feedback. Apologies once again for the confusion about your accomodation. Unfortunately due to being such an old building we are restricted to what we can do with our windows. We are looking into making the rooms at the front of the pub less noisy. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Thanks, Kieran.

Spent over two hours queuing for the Old Crown on St Patrick's day as every other year me and my friends have had a very good day there. However there was no security managing the crowd wanting to come in and people who had just arrived were going in straight away and the people left queuing were stuck outside. Very...

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Old Crown last weekend when we were in Birmingham to go to a concert. The place is very conveniently located only about a 15 minute walk to the city centre. The inn is old and charming, but the charme comes with a price as the old building lets in a lot of noise...

Took my 91 year Dad for lunch. He enjoyed his fish and chips and my guineas stew was delicious plenty of meat but a few veg in it would have made it excellent. Local beer and cider both cold and refreshing. Two cappuccinos were fine. Lovely old pub and still reasonably accessible for my Dad and his walker.

Traveled from Lincoln to watch Fulham FC vs Birmingham City. Poor match, great pub. Had a few beers and a quick lunch.The sandwiches are great 'get you some of that'. This pub was really unexpected, had walked around for 45 minutes looking for cheap eats in an area that had perhaps seen better days. Very little on offer in the...
