The Woodman is a public house on Albert Street in Birmingham, England that is Grade II listed.[1] It stands beside the Eastside City Park and the abandoned, but listed, Curzon Street railway station.

History

The building was built in 1896 and 1897 with the purpose of being a public house for the Ansells Brewery. It was one of the small corner pubs designed by James & Lister Lea. The building is built from red brick and terracotta with a slate roof. Both the ground and first floor have narrow windows above the entrance, but with wide windows with brick mullions. Since its construction the pub has featured a large amount of tiling inside and large mirrors that are both gilded and engraved.[2] There is still a "Smoke Room", although its original use is now prohibited by law, which again has the original Mintons tiling and seating.[3]
