We seek to be a neighbourhood bar in the traditional sense, a throwback to the days where the pubs were the beating heart of the local communities. Spaces are available for community and private events and we are particularly keen to support activities consistent with our craft philosophy

Fronted by Bryan Elliott, The Brown Lion on Hall Street, in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, has undergone a dramatic refurbishment and has reopened after a number of false dawns since the pub’s heydey in the 1970’s and 80’s.

The revamped pub will offer a range of beers, ciders and cocktails from across Britain and the world as well as a food menu, which has been designed by Simon Dunmore from the acclaimed ChiiliDogs.  There is also live entertainment, community events and a growing list of cultural events designed to offer the residents of the Jewellery Quarter, and growing number of visitors, something different to the current offering in the area.

The interior has been completely transformed by a local furniture maker and matches luxury leather sofas with more modern designs and finishes including hessian sacks, cow hide, and polished wooden floors. The bar area has also been revamped to aid customer experience and open the whole venue up. It has room for 150 customers across a number of different areas.

A fascinating past

This glorious red-brick Victorian pub with its grand arched windows is where the goldsmiths and silversmiths from the nearby Jewellery Quarter once quenched their thirsts. In the mid-19th century, Birmingham’s jewellery trade was the biggest in the land. In 1861, 7,500 people were engaged in the business. They were the best-paid workers in the city. By 1880, Birmingham contained 700 workshops. It was the heyday of the city’s jewellery trade. At The Shakespeare they found laughter, fine beer and a moment or two of privacy in the pub’s separate rooms. The rooms in many similar pubs from the era have since been opened up. But not at The Shakespeare where a moment of quiet peace over a pint and a good meal is as delightful as it was in the bustling days of Birmingham’s well-paid metalworkers.
