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

Fab location in Digbeth just next to the Custard Factory. Food and atmosphere always great in here. Prices really reasonable and by far the best food in Digbeth! They also have a huge smoking area with heaters. Happy days :-)

We booked a 2 night stay in this hotel, selecting it above others due to the history of the building and a desire to stay away from big chain names. Booking through Expedia was as straight forward as usual, however, on arrival we where greeted by a closed hotel. A closed hotel? Surely not? We have stayed in hotels from... More

We had booked a room for 1 night for 28th December with hotels.com. We arrived just after 2.30 to locked doors. After attempting to contact the owner by phone (7 times) and making enquiries at a neighbouring shop, who also tried to telephone him to no avail, we decided to venture into the city centre and book another hotel. Being... More

I had booked a single room, but on arrival was upgraded to a double room - thank you! The bed was comfortable, and the room was warm and clean, although a good dust around the light fitting wouldn't hurt... My room was not en-suite but the shared bathroom was clean with a good shower. There was a sink in the... More

Stayed one night (Sunday) in an amazingly quaint room with a four poster bed, sloping floor, exposed beams and en suite bathroom. We arrived quite late (8.30pm) and the kitchen was shut so walked 500m or so and found an Indian restaurant nearby (excellent, by the way!). The live music had stopped when we returned to the pub, but our... More
