Old Joint Stock Theatre Birmingham Reviews
Great ambiance and atmosphere Jul 03, 2008
We had been out walking in Birmingham’s city center and we were all a bit disappointed because we had read about modern architecture and all kinds of stuff and we had not been impressed. After walking round the Cathedral we spotted a really nice looking pub that turned out to be The Old Joint Stock Pub.
The pub is located amongst the banks and international commerce and opposite the cathedral and turned out to be an awesome place. The building was constructed in 1864 and today the house is a grade-two-listed-building. Julius Alfred Chatwin who is best known as a builder of many Victorian churches designed the building and prior to being taken over by Lloyds Bank in 1889 it was the Birmingham Joint Stock Bank.
The Old Joint Stock Theatre opened in October 2006 and we took immediately a liking to it. As many other pubs it was quite full when we arrived there late afternoon; most of the guests were in suits and probably on there way back home. I remember that I at least had one Golden Pride 500ml, which set me back 6,60 pounds, so was not exactly cheap.
