We had our little dog with us in the outdoor space, a barmaid came out and told us no dogs allowed. Annoying for a pub called the Spotted Dog but fair enough if thats the policy. So we drove her home, 20 mins each way, and came back to rejoin our friends. When we got back there was another dog sitting on someone's lap in the bar. I queried this with the barmaid and she said that one was allowed as the owner knew it!

Great jazz, nice pub. Just needs a bit of a rethink.. It’s great that the pub’s weekly jazz night is so popular, but at a certain point you have to acknowledge that you don’t have the supply (of space) to meet your demand. From my pov it’s an obvious problem that needs solving, but they might be happy that it has a crammed atmosphere and you’re either in or out, sort of thing. But Its a shame when you make the journey over and you can’t get a look-in. On the same note, one gents toilets for the whole pub is not enough either. Also, barwoman pointed at me and said “you can wait” whilst she chatted to someone. Made me laugh to be honest 😂 All in all, The old traditional pub vibe is great but at some point you have to try and modernise the bits that need it.

Nice pub, friendly staff. Quite a small but still a good selection of drinks, including cask ales. Large outdoor seating area with quirky decor, all undercover.

Been a few times for the jazz session on a Tuesday night. It’s £5 a head (someone comes round to take the money) and the quality of music is really outstanding. Drinks are more than reasonable and there’s a real buzz about the place.

The spotted dog is a nice and cozy pub in Digbeth. It does looks small from the outside but there is a courtyard at the back where a live Jazz band plays I think every Tuesday. It was surprisingly jam packed for a weekday. There was no vacant seat in sight when we arrived. Granted that we arrived a bit late and all. The music was soothing although the talks and bantering made it difficult to totally focus on the music. All in all, it was a lovely experience. Definitely going to try again some other time.
