I stayed here for 2 nights on a hen party in July. Pros - cheap, unique location, friendly staff, good shower, reaonsable cooked breakfast, spacious beer garden, cheap pub food Cons - shared bathroom (wasn't a problem for us as we had all but 1 room). Springy and uncomfortable beds. No aircon and rooms upstairs very hot, had to sleep... More

Stayed here for just one night after a gig in Birmingham. Ate lunch from the bar and the food was fantastic, extremely tasty burger and good selection of beers. Our room was wonderful. We were lucky enough to get a lovely old four poster bed and the traditional style of the hotel runs throughout. We had a shared bathroom and... More

I had booked in for a few nights as on a business course, but after the first night I had to check out. The noise from the pub below wasn't too bad as was a Monday night, but the noise from the road outside was horrendous! Didn't get a wink of sleep. Great breakfast though and staff very accommodating

I appreciate that this is meant to be 'alternative' accommodation, with many of the original features of the old building making it different from the standard fayre. Indeed, the rooms do feel authentic in that regard and do provide something different. However, this is no excuse for the parts of the accommodation which should be modern and well kept being...

The room was massive and full of history (well the whole pub is), I loved it! But....it's on a main road which is noisy, late night taxis etc... and I think there was a lock in at the pub coz it was so loud with music. The en-suite bathroom was lovely and the whole wonkiness of the room and hotel... More

My husband and I had a great stay here. The pub had great beer and food and the staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in had a lot of character and was en suite. All in all, we were very happy with our stay!

Decided to book here rather than paying taxi fares back out to the Black Country after a night out in Birmingham. Same price >:-) Was absolutely the right choice. From the very first call to book, right through checking in, to checking out AND adding an impromptu breakfast on on a Sunday morning, the staff were friendly and efficient, without... More

This is probably a very good B&B, I booked to stay here but due to unforeseen circumstances didn't but that didn't stop Kieron doing his absolute best to make our stay a success. He was not responsible for our end accommodation but still tried to help by feeding us and paying for our car parking. Next time I would like... More
