Once a part of the old Manor of Birmingham, Hockley can boast being home to the world-renowned Jewellery Quarter and St Paul’s Church. Located on a main road three miles out of the centre of Birmingham. The Railway is a traditional end of terrace pub occupying a corner spot which boasts traditional beamed ceilings and stain glassed windows.

This is a true community site. Currently, this is a wet led pub, however, the addition of simple but tasty bar snacks could easily be introduced. The key to success at this site will be building relationships with the community, ensuring there is always a warm welcome, great ales and even making the pub home to different pub teams and community groups. 

The Railway can be accessed via two separate entrances, both located on the front of the building. The entrance toward the right will lead you straight into what is known as the Bar, this is a very traditional bar complete with separate bar, hard furnishings and a mixture of fixed and loose seating nicely decorated with commemorative Birmingham Railway pictures. Walk on through and you will find the pool area. Access the pub via the door on the left and you will find the lounge. Again nicely decorated you will be met with soft furnishings, fixed and loose seating, TV’s for showing sports and separate bar. The door that leads into the rear garden can also be located in the lounge. The beer garden has a smoking shelter and outdoor TV. There is a corridor between the lounge and the bar where you will find a separate entrance to the small food preparation area and also where the private questers can be accessed.

Although there is no car park there is plenty of roadside parking close by.

Private accommodation consists of four double bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and a bathroom. There is separate access to the accommodation.
