business details

Digbeth’s finest family run establishment.

Live blues, jazz and Irish-folk bands staged weekly in convivial and traditional red-brick pub. The Spotted Dog is a traditional multi-roomed pub with an Irish feel, off the beaten track but well worth a trip.
Excellent Holden’s Mild is sold at a competitive price. It has a large covered garden/smoking area with heaters and a barbecue area. There is live traditional Irish music plays on Monday, jazz night is Tuesday, blues night Thursday. There is a mixture of sports on the large screen, but especially rugby. Excellent Scotch eggs, including vegetarian and gluten-free, are sold.

From the city centre, there are two direct routes to the Spotted Dog pub, you can either venture down Digbeth High Street and take a right down Alcester Street, or head down Bradford Street and the Spotted Dog will magically appear on your left at the corner of Warwick Street.

There has been a pub on this site for well over a hundred years. The present building replaced a much earlier structure and it is thought that the cellar is all that is left of the old pub. If you ask John the Landlord nicely, he might bring out the original deeds, which date back to the 1700s, and highlight old farmsteads and a Digbeth which would not be recognisable today.

Inside you will be greeted with a quaint old snug, a main bar and side bar with performance space for live music, film and spoken word.

The many fascinating trinkets and artefacts which adorn much of the pub interior are reminiscent of old traditional Irish pubs, they all make sense of the pub and its owners, and it all contributes to a cosy backwater pub atmosphere
