I have known Angus McMeeking joint MD of Black Country Ales for over 30 years and he certainly knows how to run a good pub…..no loud music and SKY Sports on the box……just good old fashioned decent ale and pub food….his cheese and onion cobs pork pies and Black Country pork scratchings are to die for……Angus has about 30 pubs in his stable including ‘The Wellington’ in Bennetts Hill, oft voted ‘Best Real Ale Pub’ in Birmingham and ‘The Craven Arms’ by The Mailbox, another great pub run to Angus’ formula of great beer, great food and a great atmosphere and ambience…….He also runs my locals ‘The Midland’ in my home town of Bearwood on Bearwood Road and ‘The Swan’ in Blackheath on Long Lane……..Great pubs from Black Country Ales…..More power to your elbow Gussie!!!

I was lucky enough to be sent to the JewellersArms Hockley Street for Brumhour last night. My review for that will be on Brumhour very soon. (I will post a link when it’s available )
Because I had such a nice time at the Jewellers Arms, I thought I share my experience. Located in the heart of Birmingham’s famous jewellery quarter and just a very short walk from the train station this charming, traditional British pub is everything a good pub should be. Cosy with a lovely friendly atmosphere and lively enough without being frantic, it’s easy to settle into this kind of pub for a few hours.
As some of you may know, I was away last week and even though I was only in Wales, it’s too far from Birmingham to be included on my pages, but I did enjoy discovering pubs just like this in wales too…
