I note with interest the comments on your web page regarding Frankley & Rubery pub crawl especially The Toby Jug dated 13/03/10?????????
I would like to point out that this information is totally incorrect.
You state as follows
'5) TOBY JUGG (Newman Way)
Only five minutes walk from Rubery, but tucked up a side road next to a new private housing estate. With hundreds of people on their doorstep, quite a few of them with money, how could they get it so wrong?
Playing drum and bass and pandering to the landlady’s loud-mouthed teenage son, this is a model of how not to run a pub.
Only my opinion of course – feel free to try it and tell me that I’m wrong.'
I took over these premises in October 2008 and we have worked very hard to transform the Toby Jug into a friendly community pub.
The premises was derelict when I moved in having being closed and vandalised for the 6 months before I moved in.
You may like to look at our web page to see what The Toby is today. www.tobyjugrubery.com
I enjoy your site but the article about Frankley/Rubery pubs is not correct especially as its dated March 2010. You’re welcome to visit at any time and find out for yourself.
With Kind Regards
