Returned here on Saturday and Sunday afternoon for the pub's cider festival. Last time I was here, they had no ciders at all. On the Saturday, they only had one available with no staff to man the tent at the rear. By Sunday, the tent was open. But only about a dozen of the 20 ciders were available following heavy sessions the previous 2 evenings. Nevertheless, the range available was fairly good. The pub now has its own microbrewery (Fownes) and regularly has 2 or 3 of their beers on which are competitively priced. During my 2 visits, beers on were Fownes Crispin's Ommer, Challenger, Best of British Hops & Summer Bitter, Oakham Bishop's Farewell & Athena, Titanic Nautical Mild, Blue Bee Nectar Pale, Arkwrights Original, Navigation Classic IPA, Scarborough American Pale Ale, Phoenix White Monk, Shugborough Jolly Crispin Funday Bitter, Green Jack Rising Sun & WJ King Sussex Downs Ale. Ciders and perries included Broadoak KB, Perry & Moonshine, Westcroft Janet's Jungle Juice, Abrahalls Medium Still & Thundering Molly, Chant Singing Cider, Westons Wyld Wood, Old Rosie, The Governor & Country Perry, Burrow Hill Medium, Watkins Oak, Moorlands Farm Cyder, Hecks Port Wine of Glastonbury, Sandford Orchards Devon Red & Snails Bank Tumbledown Medium & Dry. A charity fun day was held on the Sunday and was reasonably well attended. Service seems to be better than it once was. But I was still served out of turn on at least one occasion. A marked improvement on this visit.

I like this pub just not as much as I used to. Not such a wide choice of ales and there were. Staff not as.. um.. visible, shall we say. It's a lot quieter than it used to be. I tend to go in on Saturday afternoons and sometimes we've been the only 2 in there. It's a shame. Not sure what's happened.

Traditional suburban local, with low ceilings and a central bar serving distinct areas that create a pleasant, cosy feel, with bar rooms at the front and a more comfy lounge at the rear. The beer choice is the real draw, with all the beers socurced from local microbreweries. Tried the ginger ale which was very pleasant, along with the bar staff. Good smell of food but I didn't try any. The 558 Dudley-Wolverhampton bus passes here and many other good pubs and this is defintely worth a visit on any visit to the Black Country.

Lots of beers available, bit of a beer tickers dream, not too many locally produced beers so worthwhile if you want so you something a bit different.
