More information on the Olive Branch Inn on Adderley Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Olive Branch Inn from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Olive Branch Inn. In the meantime I have included a few photographs of the public-house along with a newspaper article. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"The Sports Argus team paid their third visit to the Olive Branch, Adderley Road, last night to play the Saltley and District League. They suffered many shocks before getting home by the odd game in a thrilling match. The fluctuating fortune of the game of darts was never more fully illustrated than on this occasion. The Argus team had promised much. Convincingly they had cleared the board in the doubles matches for a 5-0 victory. In the singles Saltley took a leaf of our copybook to reverse the procedure in the early stages."
