Built in 1862 by Julius Alfred Chatwin, the establishment was originally designed as a library before becoming the Birmingham Joint Stock Bank. Lloyds Banks then took ownership of the premises in 1889 - the very same year as Birmingham recieved official City status.
More than a century later, and The Old Joint Stock is a stunning pub - making a wonderful feature of the original fixtures and fittings. One of the best pubs in Birmingham and beyond, it is the UK's highest seller of London Pride.
