Welcome to the
The Garden House is a handsome pub which sits within three early 19th century homes in the attractive Edgbaston area of Birmingham. Within half a mile of this charming inn lie the Grade II listed tower of Perrot’s Folly and the Victorian tower of Edgbaston Waterworks. The former was reputedly built so that John Perrott, a local landowner had a vantage point to spy on his unfaithful wife, and the two towers together are believed to have inspired the Two Towers of J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels, with the author growing up in the shadow of these two impressive Edgbaston landmarks. Edgbaston is also home to the picturesque Birmingham Botanical Gardens & Glasshouses was opened in 1832 by J. C. Loudon, the preeminent garden planner of his day. The array of plants on offer is magnificent, including a unique hybrid fern tree which has stood here for over 140 years. A wander through attractive Edgbaston will also lead you to the legendary Edgbaston Cricket Ground, and the impressive University of Birmingham, where the stunning clock tower rises above a cluster of handsome brick buildings. A handsome, traditional pub in scenic Edgbaston, The Garden House is a perfect spot for relaxing with tasty pub food. Tucked back from the road, behind a picturesque row of grand trees, this is an ideal haven in which to sit down for a leisurely Sunday lunch and a refreshing glass of cask ale. Built in the early-19th century, The Garden House is nestled in Edgbaston, once a rural area outside of Birmingham, but now an attractive corner of this vibrant, historic and handsome West Midlands city. Though little is known of the area’s early history, the name Edgbaston is believed to have been Old English for ‘village of a man called Ecgbald’.
