The place is great. Old world style, great service, fantastic range of ale and larger and gin.. .... could spend many hours in here. Food isn't bad either, it's a pub so the food is in that vein, but it is still good quality ingredients....More

What is better than a pint of London Pride and a tasty pie? I totally recommend the lamb pie with mash and veg. This is a great venue in a good location

Loads going on here. Airy venue, got very busy for a short while. Historic, fun, and looks like some great evening events and food worth trying. This was a drinks only visit, but will definitely return.

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!
