William Nicholson brass plaque in Birmingham

William Nicholson
(1824-1909)
Distiller, politican, cricket player, benefactor

This alehouse is part of the Nicholson's heritage collection.
They're all different, yet they all owe something to the man who founded them.
William Nicholson was a Victorian all-rounder - a businessman, MP and sporting hero.
He played first-class cricket, ran the family's distilling business, and
financed Lord's Cricket Ground and its famous pavilion.
In 1873, William revitalised a collection of characterful alehouses, each one
and architectural delight with a strong sense of place and individuality.
William added craftsmanship - marble, tiling, vibrant leaded windows - and
his larger-than-life personality.
His alehouses are still brimming with warmth, tradition, and timeless hospitality.
