The White Horse Cellars was located on the corner of Constitution Hill and Northwood Street. Replacing an earlier White Horse, this c.1890 building is the only known pub design by the eminent architect J. A. Chatwin. Another oddity is that the pub was once operated by Flower's Brewery of Stratford-on-Avon - most unusual for Birmingham. Mitchell's and Butler's later acquired the property. A lovely building that has suffered seemingly terminal decline.

More information on the White Horse Cellars on Constitution Hill to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the White Horse Cellars 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 White Horse Cellars. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"The greatest revolution in modern history was that caused by the railway movement. Stage coaching, though scotched, has never been killed. The game was kept alive by a few enthusiasts from the White Horse Cellars. Tomorrow, however, the stage coach is to supersede the railway in carrying certain mails. The terms of the Brighton Company being too high for the Post Office, Mr. Raikes has arranged with the proprietors of certain coaches to convey the night mails to the Queen of Watering Places by road. The first coach will depart tomorrow, and the event will be marked by an enthusiastic demonstration by the coaching people and others interested in horse flesh."
