The Hawne Tavern, Halesowen

A good back street locals pub. Popular with a large bar with pool table and separate seating areas plus a smaller cosy lounge. There are three regular and up to six guest ales. Tried the Bathams Bitter and Wye Valley HPA, both good. Thatcher's Heritage cider also available here.

The Waggon and Horses, Halesowen

This is still a great real ale pub, with a decent range of good value food. It's a 'drinkers' pub' but not a drunkards pub: nice atmosphere of people supping their pints appreciatively & chatting with family or friends.

Went there for lunch recently, having only been for drinks previously, & was impressed by the food: a relatively small but interesting menu on offer, from traditional pub grub to the more exotic/spicy, all at down to earth prices.

The beer prices may not be the absolute cheapest around but what a choice! 14 pumps including Abbeydale, Angel Ales, Bathams and Oakham, all well kept and you can have a taster of one or two if the variety leaves you uncertain which to choose.

This is not a posh pub nor a posh restaurant but as a 'real' pub selling good beer with tasty food available it's hard to beat.

The Swan, Kidderminster

Called here with a couple of mates. Nice 17th-century pub, large lounge, snug and a comfy public bar. Bathams house serving Mild Ale and Best Bitter. We tried the Best, and found a good pint. Weston's cider is available on hand pull. There is a large garden and children's play area at the rear overlooking the local countryside. Dogs are also welcome.

Butchers Arms, Sheepscombe

Really cosy, 17th century village pub with restaurant area. 3 ales, including Butcombe and Moles. Has a great fish nights on Wednesday. Bar even has a heated foot rest!

Don't be afraid of the several ghosts reported to haunt the pub. The interesting carved pub sign is apparently one of the most photographed in the country. Once a butchers shop, butchering is said to have been here when Henry VIII hunted deer in the valley. Staggering views from the tables on the steep grass behind the pub. Good service and also dog friendly.

The Queens, Ludlow

Pleasant pub/restaurant. Lacking some character but clean and tidy.

Good selection of ales. All seemed OK.

The Feathers Hotel, Ludlow

By far the best beer we found in Ludlow.

Bar is clean, tidy and comfortable. Service the evening was good - friendly and informative.

Three ales tried - Ludlow Best, Ludlow Boiling Well and Hobsons Old Prickly. ALL served at good temp, excellent clarity, and in good condition.

Very impressed. Definitely recommend.

The Church Inn, Ludlow

Very disappointed. The Church was not what we expected.

Dirty tables, floors, toilets. Service was appalling. Staff totally disinterested.

The ales we tried, Hobsons Town Crier (definite tang), Ludlow Boiling Well (past its best) and Wye Valley HPA (dead, lifeless).

Finally, what's with all the fruit/hop flies? A serious problem in this pub.

The Chequers Inn, Oxford

Nice old inn located down narrow medieval passage.

5 ale on sale, including a decent pint of Brakspear.

Worth a visit.
