    Lamp
    Jewellers Arms

    and the Old Contemptibles, Lord Clifden and Rose Villa (one of my favourite pubs) off the bottom.

    BTW Hockley and the Jewellery Quarter are pretty much the same place so why the Birmingham Mail separates them I don't know.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Yeah, but so does Pubs Galore! I went to the Jewellers Arms a couple of weeks ago and was surprised to find it was not in the Jewellery Quarter! (I've done a bit of a tidy, with what I thought were obvious JQ pubs now appearing in both Hockley & JQ. Others may want to rearrange them - which I am happy with if it's based on local and therefore better knowledge.)

    Just two for me, Marble Arch and Mrs Sarahs Chophouse.
    Just the two for me the Marble Arch and Bakers Vaults.I'm not sure the Marble Arch even did hot food when I went there.

    7 for me, Craven Arms, PO Vaults, Pure Bar, Wellington, Arthur Robertson, Brewhouse & Kitchen and Mare Pool.
    The best Brum JDW when I was going round them was this one.

    Needless to say I didn't write the list.

    The Jewellery Quarter only covers the eastern part of the wider area that might also be called Hockley, but it also creeps a bit further towards the city centre (and almost anywhere in the West Midlands if you are a proponent of estate agents' geography, a bit like Hoxton in London...).

    Personal view:
    a) anything west of the A4540 Icknield Street as far as the Black Eagle is just Hockley;
    b) anything between the A4540 and the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal could be Jewellery Quarter or Hockley; and
    c) anything between the canal and A4400 Queensway could be Jewellery Quarter or Birmingham Central.

    NB - A good map can be found at the back of this interesting English Heritage (as was) booklet: The Birmingham Jewellery Quarter - An introduction and guide.
