Another old review for a newly added pub

As the name implies, this is a new micropub, set up in the former station building at Albrighton. There is an inevitable comparison to be made with the next station down the line (Codsall) which
Is also now a pub. Because the two buildings are exactly the same size and shape – and also we had just been to Codsall !

Unfortunately, initial impressions are not so good. The building looks rather scruffy externally, and if it was for a handwritten sign saying “yes we are open”, we might have thought it was closed.

Inside however, it has all been spruced up, with white painted wall, and solid chairs and tables. These seemed to give an impression of more space than at Codsall – I don’t know why. Plus a real coal fire, and a few items of railway interest on the walls.

The bar was straight ahead from entrance, and featured six cask ales. I had been led to expect a number of beers from the local Newbridge brewery, but there weren’t any. I assume that all those available were changing guests. Those I can remember were two from Fixed Wheel, one from Rowton and Coastal Cornish Merry Mild, which is what I had and rather nice it was too.

Food appeared consist of sandwiches and pork pies.

The landlord was very friendly, and spent most of his time talking to a couple sitting opposite – mainly about the Egyptian National Railway Museum !

7/10 – certainly worth another visit
