(0121) 602 2601.
Mon-Fri 4.30-11 Sat/Sun open all day
Just off the A458 which is the main Stourbridge to Birmingham road.
A traditional local from the outside, the inside is a bit different. A two-roomed pub, the central rough cut wooden bar serves both. The lounge has a tiled fireplace (not used).
Seating is crushed velvet benches round the walls with red leatherette backs, chairs and mainly stools.
Tables are a mixture of small and two large square ones at each end. Decor is predominately brass on the walls and and a mixture of wallpaper (see photo).
There were 9 beers on at the time including Hampshire Lionheart, Tale of the Dragon and a couple of Wye Valley ales.
The public bar has 2 distinct areas. The first that greets you on entrance is the pool area (darts is available near the toilets). The second is a lattice wood fenced area where there are some pews with cushions and square tables. The long bar area here also has stools at it.
The toilets are accessible for the disabled (no disabled toilet), though getting there might be difficult. One thing to watch out for is the 'short measures' as the glasses say Banks' but they are not always lined.
If you fancy a sing song, there is a Piano in the public bar.
For the summer there is a small beer garden out back.
No accommodation here.
