Our host, Keiran, greeted us on arrival and showed us to our room. The wow factors just kept coming. From the masses of period features to the reveal of our room with a full fourposter bed and three seater sofa, a full corner bayh which filled in about two minutes combining luxury with convinience. The pub and outside bar areas... More

Didn't really take much notice at time of booking - the priorities being price and distance from venue of gig we were going to. so it was a really pleasant surprise to walk into a beautiful old building and even better to be shown to our huge room with four poster! this is not the place if you want pristine...

My wife and I had booked the Old Crown for a stay on Sat 21/03. Unfortunately it was double booked. So Ciaran arranged for us to have a meal and drinks on the house, whilst he organised a replacement hotel to stay. He also returned our payment, paid for the replacement hotel and gave us the taxi fare from the... More

Have always enjoyed eating and drinking here. Have had family functions here and always well catered for. When you think about a usual Sunday dinner we have got used to boil in the bag rubbish and lack of mash in the major chain pub. Not here... all home cooked. Generous portions,tasty, fresh and hot. You can choose two out of... More

My daughters had spent months planning a surprise 70th Birthday party for their Dad, and had chosen the pub as the venue as they knew he really liked this pub. The evening turned out to be a fantastic success. The owners, Kieron and Cieron, couldn't have been more helpful. The downstairs area was provided for our use, which was ideal,... More

our adventure started of with a fantastic steak and very well kept guinness in the bar, so we wandered round this intriguing pub with history going back to the 14th century and it's nooks and crannies and small rooms and it's well and it's cooking ranges and it's masses of other stuff. It was so unusual we booked to stay... More

Stayed for two nights and loved the hotel, food was great staff very friendly and we were given fresh milk for our room without having to ask. Only down side was the noise it's a pub and the music played till midnight, not ideal with a 4 yr old! Saying that the room was so lovely. Would go again but... More

I booked a 1 night stay at the old crown and it was exactly what I expected. The room was spotless and the bar staff were very friendly. Very good value for money with an excellent breakfast in the morning and an excellent pub menu for daytime food. I will defentiently book again for my next trip to birmingham
