Pub in Birmingham

The pastel wallpaper, timber bar and polished brass give the impression the Welly is frozen in time, but this spruced-up pub sheltering a timber-decked roof terrace is the best in the city for real ale. Its 27 hand-pulled beers and ciders include favourites from Black Country and Wye Valley as well as rare brews.

Snacks are limited to pork scratchings, pretzels et al, but you can BYO food or have takeaway delivered.
