The Old Crown turns 651

That’s right people. The Old Crown’s been spinning round the sun for 651 years. Unbelievable isn’t it?  From hosting Queen Elizabeth to being the only building left standing from the battle of Camp Hill, it’s fair to say the Old girls been round the block a bit… And in that time she’s certainly picked a thing or two on how to throw a party or two.

From being awarded Traditional Pub of the Year at the Midlands Food Drink & Hospitality Awards, to hosting blockbuster parties for St Patricks week and all through summer, we’re feeling the need for some celebrations. And our birthday bash is the perfect opportunity to dance, drink and dine on a wonderful summer, spring and year so far.

Come down to the ‘Crown for BBQ, exclusive cocktails, expert selectors and big prize giveaways from your favourite Digbeth beer garden. And guess what… It’s completely FREE! Register here for a ticket to bag one of our 651 free drinks… www.bit.ly/oldccrown651

A final treat for you all, you may have noticed that big white Rolls Royce in our garden… its not exactly missable. Well we’ve got big plans for it. We’ll be having it sprayed LIVE at our 651st birthday celebrations. Oh yeah, and it’s being sprayed by one of the UK’s biggest graffiti artists.

That’s all for now, we’ll be seeing you on 21st September. Everyone report to The Old Crown! 5PM SHARP.

Great British Pub Awards ‘Best Pub Garden’ Nomination


What a summer its been for The Old Crown! After taking home ‘Best Traditional pub’ in the Midlands’ Food, Drink & Hospitality awards back in June, we’ve been nominated for another award! This time around we’re up for ‘Best Pub Garden’ in the Great British Pub Awards!

We’re delighted to be nominated after all the hard work we’ve put into our garden this summer, Digbeth’s number one suntrap is in the final 6 of all beer gardens in the country!

With new additions to the garden including our big screen area, and our stunning all new one-of-a-kind mural courtesy of Annatomix, the only way is up for the Old Crown garden, and you bet we’ve still got a bunch of plans in store to round off the Brummie summer!

Most importantly, we think the Old Crown garden is a great space for our wonderful Digbeth community. Our garden acts as a melting pot between young and old, those who come to eat, to dance, and to relax. We love Digbeth, and we’re proud to represent it in being nominated for this award.

We’ve had a fantastic year, from our St.Paddy’s day festivities to showing Wimbledon in the baking sun, what a perfect send off to summer this would be. Either way, you bet we’ll be celebrating a fantastic year in the Old Crown garden! You can vote via the Great British Pub Awards website.
