user reviews of Dog and Doublet, Wolverhampton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Back in the city centre and we visited the Dog & Doublet before finishing at the Lych Gate Tavern. I reviewed the latter earlier this year. So I won't review that again. But the Dog & Doublet was very good too. It was quieter than I had anticipated when we walked in, with only one row of people at the bar. But by the time we left, it was 5/6 deep. Given the place is not that big, it had got fairly crowded. The ale range was decent. Ludlow Gold is the regular ale. Guests were Oakham Citra, Rat Atella Milk Chocolate & Hazelnut Stout, Kelham Island Pale Rider, Wood's Lass & Abbeydale Moonshine. The cider was Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. Probably the best place we went to for beers on this trip to Wolverhampton. But I marginally preferred Hail To The Ale, by virtue of its ciders. Offers a CAMRA discount. I'll definitely be back here some time soon.

Enjoyed a decent pint of Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild. Nothing special about the pub itself. 6/10.

Seeing Rob Beckett at the Wulfrun Hall, I checked the Good Beer Guide to see what Wolverhampton had to offer. 14 Entries!

This was the nearest.

Modern Looking Pub from the exterior - four real ales and I went for a decent Oakhams Bishops Farewell.

Exceptionally good music!

As the other reviewers have said this pub is a good `un, essential visit when in Wolvo.

The last (or the first) in a line of four handy pubs within a 12 minute dog leg trail from or towards Wolverhampton train station. The D & D is fast becoming my favourite, being the cheapest, friendliest, stylish and the most enterprising. In my book a range of 6 - 8 ales is enough for anyone and the young staff always seem eager to help you with your choice. There's also a great work ethic evident in maintaining the high standard in ale quality - this is a genuinely customer focused pub. Best avoided on home match days if you're not a Dingle, but that aside my half a dozen visits have been more than satisfying. Hopefully this will provide a little bit of a kick up the jacksie to its three nearest competitors that have tended to rest on their laurels of late. I'll award an 8.5/10 but what the hell, lets push it up to 9.

Although I’d been there before, I made a special trip here last week to review it for BITE. It’s just as well I did, since I liked it much better this time than on my previous visit !

This is an old building that has been refurbished in a modern style. The first impression you get is of space. As you enter the bar is on the left, and there are some chairs & tables to the right, but immediately in front of you is empty. They are presumably catering for the “drink standing up” trade ! There are more seats in another (dingy) room further back.

There are 6 handpumps, but only 4 beers are ever on. Two regulars (Purple Moose Elderflower & Ludlow Gold) and two guests. On my latest visit one of these was Bristol Milk Stout – absolutely gorgeous ! There are also a couple of craft keg beers available, and a fairly large range of unusual bottled beers in the fridge. They are also proif of their range of whiskeys and gins, and there is a sign saying how many beers, ciders, gins 7 whiskeys they have available. I think the beers figure was around 60 , but I forget the rest.

There are a couple of large screen YV, showing news channels, but can be difficult to avoid. There is also usually background music playing, which can be annoying if the place is empty. They also have live music, but I’m not sure how frequent that is.

7/10 – not the best pub in town, but worth checking out from time to time.
