A Good Beer Guide Entry. Quite average, typical pubby interior. Won't be remembered for too long.

Friendly welcome and efficient service. Revisionist Irish Peated Ale, Holden's Black Country Mild and Draught Bass. Food is hearty, home-cooked and excellent value. Well worth a visit. 10/10.

Large and fairly open-plan pub with a choice of 3 ales - Bass, Holdens Mild and a Tomos Watkins beer. The barmaid took an eternity to serve us, despite there being hardly anybody in. We were on the verge of leaving when she finally turned to serve us. Seemed a reasonable pub, apart from that.

A large open style hotel bar which is more pub like than your average hotel bar. Tried a pint of Gangly Ghoul (not sure who the hell brews it) which was okay though nothing special. Another of those old school (with older folk) type of large town centre pubs that hasn't been modified to attract the brats or circuit crowd.

Nice interior, pleasant friendly barmaid, obviously popular with the older generation for lunches. Also a pint of excellent Holden's Mild for �2.20. Maybe I called at a good time, but no complaints from me.

Fantastic terracotta Victorian exterior. Large open plan interior that was decorated well - wallpaper and not trendy plain walls! It was clean and i found the service fine.

The Beer was the usual stuff, with three handpulls; Pedigree, Bass and a guest that was handwritten - In Dark 3.8%, i think. Thankfully i took a sojourn to the bogs at the right time, as i passed a Holden's MILD pull! Excellent, as ever.

The MILD would mean i would always pop into this pub, as they said it was a regular beer. However, it was the pub of the day due to the fact we could get in, breathe, get a seat and hear each other.

Recently visited following a favourable review in the local CAMRA newsletter but was very disappointed. Most of the guest ales obviously came through a chiller or were sour. When I took a pint back they couldn't give a damn saying no body else had complained all night. Both my partner and I subsequently left two nearly full pints.

Decent drinkers pub with small hotel; beer range and quality typical of Tamworth (Bass good enough). Tamworth pubs seenm to be consistent in terms of quality and welcome, though unlikely to excite the micro hunter - I quite like the Bass/Pedi/mild range.

Escaped from the Sir Robert Peel only to find this place full of Villa Supporters watching the football as well. Nice pub inside however, not many beers on though. Can't remember what I had as by this stage i'd had about 20 pints so I was quite loosened up. Not the city bar I was expecting.

Redeveloped in the 1990's after being boarded up for years, the pub has beern restored to its former glory so that means lots of dark wood and brass, having said that the beers are average and the food most definately 'boil in the bag' average.
