Some history of the Pump Tavern
More information on the Pump Tavern in the Bull Ring to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Pump Tavern 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 Pump Tavern. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
