After one last pub in the city centre (Yates's!), we took the bus out to this Ember Inns pub. It's a typical branch of this chain, in all apart from the real ale selection. They're supposed to have 5 beers. But most were "coming soon". The only two on were Black Sheep Ember Pale Ale & Thwaite's Wainwright. Very disappointing, especially whey they offer tasting paddles. The food looked nice though. Probably the worst Ember Inn I've been in.

Very modern decor. Recently refurbed again. Clean. Some good ales and chain food. Suitable for girlfriends. No kids allowed. A better class of pub.

I know this pub is gets busy around midweek & at Weekends,some people go for food,some for the midweek mature totty + also for younger class Totty at weekends too,not too sure about opening/closing times as its on a regular pubroute for our clan,though we usually end it closer to home (stupid Bus Timetable).

From a long-term local I thought I'd chip in here.

Where Stu thinks it is a Banks's pub is beyond me. Strange thing to say but never mind.

Historically the Pup & Pistol has gone through a lot. From footballers - and a few of the hooligan elements, to a dive in fortunes in the 80's it has enjoyed a significant resurgance as a good night out. Sadly this does sometimes attract the knuckle-draggers and pikies but that's the risk when you have a decent boozer. Gets very busy from Thursday to Saturday but remains a pretty friendly place and if you're new to Tettenhall then you'll make plenty of friends in here.

Lastly, since when was Tettenhall Pool infamous? What a nonsensical comment!

A trendy poseurs pub back in the 80s used by a good crowd of youngsters. Always had MILD then but the MILD drinker is no longer catered for.

Located in a picturesque setting just over the road from the infamous "Tettenhall Pool" but as this is a Banks's pub with no MILD I'll only give it one point and thats for nostalgia. - 12 Jul 2006 02:35
