5 BOP dishes you HAVE to try at The Old Crown this Summer

Bop Kebabs have gone down an absolute treat since they took over our kitchen earlier this year.  From mouth-watering Mezze dishes to signature babs & bowls plus grilled delights alongside a special Sunday menu, what’s not to love?

Not had the chance to try their food out yet? Read on for a little taste of our top five picks you should try when you visit…

Chicken Wings

The BOP Chicken Wings are perfect for whatever the occasion, whether you’re looking for a tasty appetizer to get you started or just a scrumptious sharer to accompany your drinks.
The wings are grilled and smoked on-site here at The Old Crown, before being coated in a delicious green harissa sauce, lemon, and a drizzle of honey.


Merguez Sausage Kebab

If looking at this isn’t enough to make your stomach rumble, then we don’t what will! The Merguez Sausage Kebab is proving to be a very popular feature on our summer menu and it is not hard to see why.
The Merguez Sausage is served on a toasted flatbread, layered with miso baba ganoush, candied pistachio, zhoug, sesame seeds & white cabbage with a side of small fries.
Want an alternative without the flatbread? you can also enjoy this as a bowl with rice, pickles, dill, yoghurt and optional hot sauce.


The House Burger

Sometimes you just can’t beat a proper burger! The BOP guys have pulled out all the stops with this one, putting their own twist on a pub classic.
The House Bop Burger is made up of two Aubrey Allen beef patties hot off the grill, topped with ketchup, burger relish, pickles, and a delicious smoked applewood cheese.
Served with a traditional side of fries.


Sunday Roast Dinner

Looking for the perfect Sunday hangover cure? look no further!
The BOP Sunday roasts are some of the best Brum, with an option of both meat and veggie dinners along with kids options and delicious sides.
Our top pick is the Sirloin of Roast Beef, cooked to your taste with all the trimmings including roast potatoes, glazed root vegetables, greens and a yorkshire pudding as well as a lashing of gravy.
Served here at The Old Crown from 12PM – 6PM every Sunday.


Grilled Peach Fattoush

Something a little healthier but still truly mouth-watering from the new BOP menu – say hello to the Grilled Peach Fattoush
This bowl is packed with so many outstanding flavours, with the grilled peach being tossed with chopped salad, feta, crispy flatbread & vinaigrette.



You can check out the rest of the Bop Kebabs menu here.

The Bop Kebabs kitchen is open from Monday – Saturday right here at The Old Crown from 12PM til 9PM with our Sunday kitchen closing at the earlier time of 6PM.

No booking is required all week however if you wish to reserve a table you can do so here.

Foka Wolf takeover at The Old Crown

Everyone’s favourite Birmingham based Guerrilla artist Foka Wolf brings unseen works and installations together at a one of a kind exhibition at The Old Crown opening on 8th September 2021 running through to 12th September 2021.

The event begins with a special opening night, where visitors can enjoy live music from local artists Liamosino and The Transmission along with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some truly fantastic pieces of art.

The Foka Wolf experience will conclude with a charity auction hosted by Tat Vision, local YouTube personality, where businesses and individuals are encouraged to come forward and bid for an opportunity to take home art from this exclusive, unseen collection. The first 50 people to arrive for the auction and opening night will also receive a special gift.

Foka Wolf and The Old Crown will be partnering with Parkinson’s UK for this event with proceeds from ticket sales and the auction being donated to the charity.

Speaking on the upcoming exhibition, Foka Wolf said;

Over the last year, people at the bottom have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. I feel like I have an opportunity and a duty to give something back and that is why I will be holding this auction. It will include various pieces from local artists, businesses and myself in this once in a lifetime event.”
