14 of the last ‘proper’ old-school pubs still open in Birmingham
Traditional boozers with cheap drinks and proper characters - is your local on the list?
Birmingham has a wide choice of pubs to suit all tastes and pockets, but the ‘proper’ old-school boozers are sadly dying out.
Here at BirminghamWorld, we love to support these traditional pubs, which are often packed with interesting characters and serve cheaper pints than posher places that often feel more like restaurants than pubs.
Food is not always top of the list when it comes to proper drinking pubs, although if you’re lucky there will be a clingfilm-wrapped cheese and onion bap on the bar and a few packets of Scampi Fries or pickled onion-flavour Monster Munch to line the stomach.
These are timeless pubs where conversations often compete with live sports on TV or a game of pool or darts in the bar.
Here are nine of the last ‘proper’ Brummie pubs but we’d like to know about more so let us know which are your favourite boozers and we’ll check them out.
