About the employer

Prominently positioned on a picturesque High Street, The Greswolde Arms is a popular pub and restaurant in the historic village of Knowle. Originally a 17th century coaching inn, the Greswolde once provided accommodation for shooting parties of nobility and gentry. Lady Byron, the wife of renowned poet Lord Byron, also stayed here and even The Beatles stayed at the Greswolde Arms in 1963 whilst touring in the local area. We have a large, attractive beer garden for warmer weather and two roaring log fires and large comfy sofas inside creating a cosy atmosphere when it's cold outside. An extensive menu is served daily with a tasty range of fresh pub food to choose from. Sunday roasts are available with a choice of delicious meats and a vegetarian option. All of this can be washed down with real ales, a good bottle of wine or a refreshing soft drink. This traditional country pub is located just 6 miles from Birmingham NEC and the LG Arena and close to the centres of Birmingham and Solihull, making this a great location to enjoy a traditional pub meal in a warm, welcoming atmosphere before an exhibition, concert or business meeting. The Greswolde Arms has played a pivotal role in the village of Knowle for centuries. Originally called 'The Mermaid Inn,' the premises was acquired by the wealthy Greswolde family of Malvern Hall in the early 1700s and remained with them for over 200 years. The name change to The Greswolde Arms took place under the stewardship of Henry Greswolde Lewis. The oldest part of The Greswolde Arms is the central section, where its steep gables appear to have been a timber-framed structure. However, throughout the 18th and 19th centuries the Greswoldes continued to extend and renovate the property to accommodate the expanding coaching trade.
