This Bull is an award-winning, traditional pub located in the heart of what was once Birmingham’s historic Gun Quarter (the busiest in the world at the time). There has been a hostelry selling ales on this site since the 18th century (1729). Steeped in local history, The Bull is “a jewel in the crown of Birmingham’s pubs”.
Inside you will be greeted with beautifully ornate late 19th century saloon style windows and a traditional Victorian decor. There is a small Welsh chapel opposite and it has been known for the male Welsh choir to rehearse in the side bar to the entertainment of the drinkers.
There’s a resident pub cat, a side snug with sofa and all kinds of trinkets such as jugs hanging above the bar. Most of the loyal locals travel in far and wide to drink in the Bull and once you step inside you will see why.
When it comes to beer, they are pleased and proud to serve a wide selection of traditional hand-pulled cask ales, many of which are “guests”, lagers or stouts. They also pride themselves on hearty pub food and offer a wide selection of home-cooked meals from the normal menu together with an excellent daily choice available from the ‘Specials’ blackboard.
In short, The Bull is the ideal place to unwind at lunch-time or in the evening with a small number of en-suite rooms available for guests to stay overnight too.
The Bull is open during normal licensing hours: 12 am – 11 pm; Monday to Saturday.
