Public Houses

Pubs, Restaurants, Clubs and Hotels in Great Barr

Public Houses have always played a key part in community life. In Great Barr the Scott Arms acted as a court, meeting place and market. Modern pubs are increasingly selling food and the divide between pubs and restaurants is now very small. These pages highlight the public houses, both current and past as well as including the few restaurants  and hotels in the area.Takeaways are included under shops.
