The pub is found in Birmingham, West Midlands, B31 2QT.

Taken from CAMRA's Heritage Pub Website: A magnificent 1929 'Brewers Tudor' roadhouse, designed by Francis Goldsbrough of Batemans for Birmingham brewers Davenports. As such it is one of the largest pubs ever built. It has a wonderful timbered exterior with gables, carved woodwork, leaded glass, an original carved projecting sign, fine stonework and chimneys. At the rear is a bowling green with original stone-built pavilion and pergolas. There has been a lot of change on the ground floor but the baronial hall-style bar with notable timber ceiling at the rear is impressive. Even more so are the upstairs function rooms which it is well worth asking to see. After a refurbishment the pub re-opened as a Wetherspoon's on 23 July 2010.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 13 different beers and tried 3 of them.
