Some history of the Royal George
The Royal George stood on the southern side of Garrison Lane, on the western corner of Tilton Road, a thoroughfare formerly known as Kelynge Street.
I have not researched this public-house in any detail. However, I thought I would upload a photograph so at least there is something to look at. I have also included the names of a few licensees. Oh, and an old newspaper article. So, better than a blank page but a lot of work needed. In the meantime, there is lots of information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"At Acock's Green Police Court, today, John Jones, Royal George, Garrison Lane, Birmingham, was summoned for driving a motor-car
along the Coventry Road, Hay Mills, at 10.20 p.m., on the 5th July, at a speed dangerous to the public. Mr. Darby [Sharp and Darby] prosecuted, and Mr. Sims
[P. Baker and Co.] defended. There was a large number of witnesses for the prosecution, and it was stated that the defendant had run over a dog belonging to
Reginald Squires, Oaklands Farm, Yardley, which had since died. For the defence it was stated that the car could not go at a rate of more than 16 to 18 miles per hour
on level ground, and on the night in question the defendant was not going more than 10 to 12 miles an hour. A further charge was preferred against the defendant of
driving a motor-car that was not registered. The defence was that four years ago the defendant bought the car from the Wolseley Motor Car Company, and had
paid that company the necessary fees for registration; also, that the defendant had paid his licence each year for the same car. It was pointed out that it was
owing to neglect on the part of one of the clerks employed at the said company that the car had been given a wrong number. For the first offence the magistrates
imposed a fine of £5, and costs, and for the second offence a fine of £2, and costs."
