The Prince of Wales, January 2000

A very traditional unspoilt pub with several rooms situated on the main A435 Alcester Road about 3 miles south of the centre of Birmingham. It serves a fine pint of Ind Coope Burton Ale (abv. 4.8%), an award winning hoppy, fruity beer with a satisfyingly long aftertaste.

Not particularly busy during the week, the pub attracts office workers at lunchtimes. However, at the weekends it is usually overflowing, full of locals and students and can get a little smoky. It was my favourite local in Moseley when I used to live there as a student, and still occasionally return. Very close to a number of very good balti houses.
