The Crown Inn is a public house in Broad Street, Birmingham, England.[1] Built in 1781, it was rebuilt in 1883, 1930 and 1991.[1] It is Grade II listed.[2]

It was the brewery tap for William Butler's brewery, which Victorian building survived at the rear of The Crown until 1987.[1]

It sits alongside a Birmingham Canal Navigations canal. and is nestled within the outline of the International Convention Centre.

The sash windows on the first and second floors are from the 1781 building.[1] The architect for the 1883 work was William Jenkins, for the 1930 work, E F Reynolds, and in Alan Goodwin & Associates, who added a west façade described by the architectural critic Andy Foster as "cheap".[1]
