Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and a decent selection at the bar. Would highly recommend for a casual pint, the food menu is very strong too. I highly recommend the Sunday roasts!

Decent pub in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter. It’s probably a fifteen to twenty minute walk from the city centre or a five minute walk from the Metro (tram) station that can be caught at a handful of venues centrally including outside New St station.

The pub has two rooms, a great variety of beers, the walls are adorned with interesting art but the crowning glory is its quirky beer garden.

Well worth a visit but be warned the beer garden gets very busy during good weather.

It’s open late but there is a cover charge for late admissions.

Quiz Night: Thursday
Host: Stoo
Entry Fee: £2 per person
Prizes: Cash prize (£75 to £100 on the nights we visited)

This is a speed quizzing smartphone quiz so there's no pens and paper involved. More importantly there's no cheating. There are four rounds of 20 questions, including a music/audio round, which are all answered on one device (phone/tablet) per team (with 10 seconds to answer each question - hence the name Speedquizzing).

The pub has a good selection of beer, which for a city centre pub is reasonably priced, and the service is good. There is a break after each round, which gives you time to refresh your glasses and visit the facilities.

The quiz itself is insanely busy - with teams being spread across two rooms, so you need to get there early (for a 9pm start you need to be there between 7pm and 8pm to grab a good table). This is not a problem as the pub also serves good food at a reasonable price. We found the teams to be very friendly. Stoo was also great, and was up from a chat about quizzing in general after the quiz had finished.

This quiz comes highly recommended.

Review based on a number of visits to this quiz.
