Hello this is my first post on this forum so I hope it's in the correct place.
Whilst researching something entirely different I came across the Sydenham Hotel situate on the corner of Pershore Street.
In 1858 it was called Sydenham Palace Inn and the licenced Victuallers were James Nutt and John Painter who's partnership became "difficult" leading to a court hearing Nutt vs Painter and injunctions being required.
In 1859 they dissolved their partnership by mutual agreement with John Painter continuing alone at Sydenham Palace Inn.
Unfortunately I have no further information but hope this helps

You were right next door to Moor St Station, in fact you were overlooking it. Its the building to the left of the Outrigger on the photo.

Hi, Just wondering if you can solve a mystery for me. When I was a student in the 70s we used to go to a pub that we knew as the Better 'Ole. I can't find a pub under that name in any archives, but I'm wondering if this was the Plough and Harrow in Selly Oak? The pictures of it look familiar but it's been over 40 years since I was in Brum. Thanks for your help.

I'm sure I remember a"Better Hole" , butb think it was the name of the bar in the pub,. not the pub itself. The name came fro a WW1 cartoon. Just cannot remember where it was

I have to admit I thought those were houses as some of them are, the Plough was right down the other end of the lane and at one time New Road went right past the front door before the bypass arrived.
My Grandad, who lived on Callowbrook Lane, wrote a letter in 1940 to my dad, who was a prisoner of war in Poland. In it he mentions that he "has got to go to the Plough for a quick 'un, as I still take it in small quantities!" Nice to see a picture of it.

Down one of the streets at the back of Digbeth Civic Hall was a Pub that mainly specialised in all types of cider, from draught to 20% vintage. We used to frequent it Thursday night in the mid 60's. Can anyone help with name of the premises?
