Pub and Theatre in Birmingham, home of outstanding beer & cider, great wines, mouth-watering fresh food and exceptional service.

4 Temple Row West, Birmingham B2 5NY

The Pub

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.

The Theatre

As well as our beautiful bar, we are also home  to the Old Joint Stock Theatre, a professional studio theatre. Our programme of shows is always busy and features everything from new writing to musical theatre to improv comedy and more!

Founded in 2006, The Old Joint Stock Theatre is part of a Grade II listed building situated opposite Birmingham’s beautiful St Philip’s Cathedral, and right in the heart of Birmingham’s city centre. This grand building is home to a 105 seat black box studio theatre and is perfect for intimate performances.

The Old Joint Stock Theatre has a variety of productions all year round, with a mix of in-house productions, co-productions and visiting companies. If you love fringe theatre you will love the experience at the Old Joint Stock Theatre.
