Its probably the Midland Hotel.  As with a lot of pubs in Midland cities their name would come about because of the pubs proximity to the Midland Railway.

The public house at no. 1 Upper Conduit Street was the 'Prince Albert'.
The Ellis in question was Thomas Ellis, who was licensee between 1899-1903.
He was followed by Mrs. Elizabeth Ellis who continued until 1909.
Last listed in 1966, the 'Prince Albert' was eventually demolished.


The 'Midland Hotel' was at no. 44 Upper Conduit Street - also demolished.
