A quintessentially English real ale tavern. Warm and welcoming, this Black Country Ales house is a regular haunt of local CAMRA folk.

Four of us visited the pub on a Saturday lunchtime. The landlady was hostile and rude towards us before we even ordered a drink. We left (without ordering) and won't be returning. Interestingly, the pub had one customer at the time. I wonder why.
