The Old Crown Inn  

The Old Crown Inn is Birmingham's oldest pub, with a pub being sited here since the 1368. After being boarded up for several years, the Old Crown has re-opened after major refurbishment and structural repairs. Quite a decent job has been made of the improvements, although the canned muzak seems out of place. It was a keg-only pub when it closed, but now Banks's (Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries) mild and bitter are sold by handpump. Pubs in the Digbeth are tend to be small locals, untouched by the excesses of the big brewery chains, and beer prices tend to be on the low side. Not so the Old Crown. Bitter costs ?2 per pint (review date 30/07/98) which soon sends first time visitors scurrying off for cheaper beer. It's good to see the Old Crown open once again, despite the steep price, and it even advertises accommodation from about ?40 upwards per night. (Phil Glover)
