Excellent pu with unique food
Sep 2021
Perfect traditional pub, on two levels (always a good thing), outdoor seating, great choice of Black Country ales, including a delicious mild ale. But bthe real highlight is something the world is not ready for - a bun filled with cheese and black pudding! Genius, and absolutely delicious.

Excellent pub in the centre of Wolverhampton
Nov 2021 • Solo
Lovely pub in the centre of Wolverhampton. Very welcoming atmosphere. Olde traditional pub with lots of character. It has a warm feel with nice local people. Also great choice of ales. The staff are friendly and you can even get cobs. One of the best pubs in Wolverhampton.

Absolutely fantastic!
Oct 2021 • Couples
I visited with my family on Sunday evening and Nico was a fabulous and friendly host who took time to enthusiastically tell us all about Black Country Ales and their pubs and ales, described the numerous ales on offer and recommended what he thought best for our taste. We were all very happy with the excellent ales which were all in perfect condition and great value. Nico also arranged a taxi for us at the end of the evening.

A big shout out also to the locals who were very friendly and welcoming, I don’t think I’ve ever been made to feel so welcome in a new pub before. Before we knew it we were being proudly shown around the pub (and the exterior) and being told about the history with it dating back to the mid-16th century.

It was one of those rare experiences where you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend and we will be making it a priority to return to The Lych Gate next time we are in Wolverhampton.

Thanks so much for a great evening Nico and your locals!

Wonderful old building with friendly staff who were happy to describe and reccomend the local ales as I was not familiar with any of them due to visiting the area. The locals/regulars were very friendly and added to the experience, definitely coming back when next in the area. The beers were also all excellent. Easy 5/5.

Hidden gem of a pub
Jun 2021
My favourite pub in Wolverhampton. Great little beer 'patio' round the back, you wouldn't know you were in the centre of Wolverhampton. Really well kept beer sold with an ever changing guest ale list. Visited whilst still under covid rules so masks required and you can't stand at the bar.

Great pub .

Located by St Peters Church is The Lych Gare Tavern a wonderful pub my twin brother Stephen and I visited on our day out in Wolverhampton.
Housed in a fantastic Grade II Listed building, you descend a set of stairs ,a solid wood serving bar, two rooms ,beautifully furnished and decorated tastefully throughout with plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub, a wonderful pub to to unwind in.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Saturday afternoon, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of the staff, we gave our details of name and phone number to assist with the governments track and trace system and then sanitised our hands and ordered a real ale each, we chose Black Country Ales BFG and pig on the wall ,these were served in excellent condition, we just kicked back, chilled out and took in the great pub we were in.
My real ale was so good,I opted to have the BFG ,a superb pale,well balanced, hints of caramel, a big hit of hops, very easy to drink and a beer style I really enjoy, my twin brother Stephen also gave me a thumbs up to his pale ale.
The vibe in this pub was superb ,every table occupied and social distances adhered to, a big well done to the hard working staff .
How come in these strange coronavirus pandemic times that the government and in particular its scare mongering scientific advisors who in my opinion have never set foot in a pub in their lives deem every virus spike on pubs,bars and restaurants, restricting opening and closing times and in lots of instances closing down whole hospitality sections bearing in mind that in every pub ,bar and restaurant track and trace is in operation, hand sanitisers available, wearing of masks is compulsory when not seated, table service and contactless payment is in operation making these establishments safe places to visit but retail outlets such as shops and department stores have no track or trace ,hardly any hand sanitisers available, shoppers walking around with no face covering or wearing masks incorrectly ie under nose and mouth ( chin hammocks ) ,never a thought of reducing shop hours or on the spot fine for these selfish irresponsible shoppers or closing the shops ,that will never happen, too much money lost for government, hypocrisy at it most blatant.
We really enjoyed our beers in here ,had a great time before we moved on and for a first time visit to here we had a great time.
The Lych Gate Tavern is easy to locate along Queen Square.
Opening hours are ( covid 19 ) .
Monday to Sunday, 11am till 10pm.
Most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

Horrendous

Doesn’t even deserve a star. Made to feel so unwelcome from the moment we walked in. We got looked at and made to feel like criminals. If your not a die hard everyday regular, don’t even try to enter. From the hospitality industry I have never seen service like it. How they make a living I will never know.

Catch up with friends
Aug 2020 • Friends
First catch up with a small group of friends (and former colleagues) today at The Lych Gate Tavern. In honesty, the four of us were all a little apprehensive after so many months of lockdown. Fear not: everything is well organised at this hostelry and, more to the point, the real ale, of which there was a very good selection, was spot on. The atmosphere was very pleasant and customer service was excellent. Thoroughly recommend this watering hole.
