Where's all this rubbish coming from anyway?

When he's back from hols, I'm certain he'll be signed.

The Dukes was a particular favourite of mine.  Especially on open weapons nights.

Ahh, The Dukes..
Me and a mate went there in the early 80's. Walked in and it seemed like everyone was eyeing the two strangers!
We did a quick walk in, turned round and came out. Scared us both shitless!

Opened again recently as Mallory's (?) and closed again after a knife attack

Medley's. Went once, never returned.

Northfield has some lovely pubs run by some very nice people.  Well Rednal does.

The one I used to drink in wasn't.

Struggling to think of a decent boozer in Rednal - The Chalet used to be half decent I suppose
I have lived in Rubery, Bournville and Weoley Castle
Can't think of decent watering holes back then other than The Black Horse and The Stone
Used to drink in the King George V
Having left Brum 23 years ago I bet they are all demolished or turned into Chinese/Indian restaurants

Hare and Hounds used to be ok back in the day but as a place to meet mates mid week rather than a night out but havenít been there in years. Black Horse is a Wetherspoons, The George was a Chinese but about to become a KFC apparently. Canít think of a decent pub left in the whole area.

If she wanted value for money how about selly oak. Used to love the Dog and Partridge...Now that was a pub.

Not been the same since the Gun Barrels was demolished. Although to be fair I haven't been in since 1986. When I was 16, and it was round the corner from school. Always got served so long as we took our blazers and ties off. Back room full of "youths" all in identical black trousers and blue open neck shirts with a big pile of Adidas bags by the door !!

I knew it as "The Hairy Mound"

Yes, Kings Heath high street.  Better known as a music venue these days.  That was where we used to drink at lunchtime in the sixth form.

The Gun Barrels was the pub my dad would take me to for Sunday lunch when he came up to visit me occasionally at Birmingham University.  The Brook and the OVT were the big student drinking places in Selly Oak back then.

According to a AV Agent on Twitter weíve had a bid accepted for Mings this evening. The guy is almost always spot on with his info.

Ahhh, the OVT, scene of one of my favourite wedding reception rumbles. Mother of the groom punched the DJ. Top night.

That made me chuckle - I think I can probably trump that ..... went to a wedding in Chelmsley Wood and the Groom was caught shagging one of the bridesmaids in one of the bedrooms in the hotel where the reception was being held - classy  eh?
