As a rule we don't tend to have steak on our menu if we were to have a steak on our specials pricing would depend on market costs but could start from around £15.00 We hope this helps

Description
With it very own theatre, The Old Joint Stock is one of Fuller's Ale & Pie pubs, and is housed in a grand Grade II listed building. Right in the centre of Birmingham, it has opulent decor crowned with an ornate glass dome above the central main bar. The Venue offers very well kept Traditional Cask Ales with some matched to the pies and other menu options...A must see for Birmingham!
