I lived in The Stork Inn from 1962 till 1967 and it was at number 217 High St Aston. High St ran from Six Ways Aston to Asylum Rd and then it became Newtown Row into town. The geography was blurred when the 1960s developers moved in. The pub at number 334 Newtown Row would have been towards the town end. I have the original photo of the Stork featured by Astoness in the previous reply. Sorry Skylark - wish I could help with the name of your pub. I will wrack my brains and see what pops up!
You are correct in saying that the Stork was 217 High St in the 1960s and for years before that, but in 1891, the period to which Skylark was referring, New Town Row went as far as Inkerman St, and the Stork was listed as 334 Newtown Row.
Here is an advert one of your Barnes relatives - a 15 year old youth - address The Stork, Newtown Row - placed in the Birmingham Daily Post on Thursday October 5th, 1893 - looking for an apprenticeship with a plumber or gas fitter.
