    Default THE WATERLOO, Smethwick, Oct '12


    'The Waterloo'


    A grade 2 listed edwardian hostelry founded in 1908, The Waterloo has the most beautiful tiles throughout, wonderfully ornate not the sort of decoration you find in pubs these days.
    It became renowned for its downstairs Grill Room complete with its coke fired open grill, said to be the best place for a steak in Birmingham!
    It has just been sold for £150,000 and the new owners say they are keen to restore it to its former glory... lets hope so as it would be a crying shame to see this amazing interior lost.
    Splored with NK who is flat out busy at the moment so unfortunately no pics from her at the moment...
    On with the snaps!!

    Thanks for looking...

    Lets hope the new owners can bring it back to its former glory. Great pics as usual.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
