After several visits to this institution... I can honestly say it is simply stunning when it comes to food... It doesnt go in for fancy food but good old grub and lots of it! I can recommend the 100% Bullocks Pie and Eton mess! Scrummy and reasonably priced!

We had lunch at the Pie Factory and it was superb! The pub looks brilliant with an "olden days" Black Country theme completed with old signs, memorabilia and sawdust on the floor. The food was above excellent and plenty of it, we opted for nachos starter followed by pies. The pies are fantastic I had steak and stilton and my... More

We visited Mad O'Rourke's for a meal on a busy Saturday and really enjoyed it. The food is very reasonably priced and the selection good (and hilariously displayed - the menu has lots of fun touches and one sign listing local produce stated that the strawberries came from the Tipton Asda!). The food could have been hotter, although it did... More

Have visited the Pie Factory on a number of occasions and have took many family members too. Every person we have taken has loved it. The food is delicious and the decor and atmosphere is really original. If you go on a Mon or Weds their are fantastic offers on the food which means they're a fantastic price.. Will definitely...

Does what it says on the tin! Amazing in house made pies and the atmosphere of a classic British pub before commercial franchises killed the traditional boozer. For first timers visit on a Wednesday around 4pm for a buy one get one free menu without the crowds. Great parking available and a good selection of ales. P.s try the minted... More
