I made a comment in April 2008 when Jamie took over. He learnt a few lessons quickly and ran a decent pub until 2021. Then Holdens made a few minor refurbishment changes and the new bloke took over. Many of the people I used to know in here on a match day have voted with their feet. The Holdens Bitter is awful. The Bathams guest ale is unrecognisable. The food on a match day is not fit for dogs. The cheapest of all burgers and sausages sold on rolls. No hot pork baps any more. No chips. (They used to be so good in here). He does open the back bar but only sells Golden Glow on there leaving the front bar quite busy for all other real ales. The Great Western is a long long way from ever being an award winning pub again.

Great pub that we like to visit each time we're in Wolverhampton. It's handy for the station and the football ground. They allow away fans in, unlike many in the centre. We came here after the game. There were lengthy queues to get served and unfortunately there weren't many ales left. Holden's Black Country Bitter, Special & Golden Glow & Batham's Best Bitter were supplemented by a guest ale - Thornbridge Rattlesnake. They also had a real cider - Holden's Marcher Lord's, which was very quaffable indeed and a new one for me. Inside, there is a small bar at the front, which leads up to more seating and opens out further to a conservatory beyond. Despite the crowds, we were glad to be out of the rain and we fully appreciated one last drink before heading home.

The subway under the station is closed at present so turn left out of the station and go to the end of the taxi/drop-off point then left again along the cobbles and under the bridge.

Was there on a Monday night, unfortunately the kitchen closed at 18.00 so wasn't able to sample the hot pork baps again, had to make do with cheese and onion and beef and onion cobs.

Beer as good as always.

Excellent pub. A few years since I was last there but yesterday I saw it has gone from strength to strength. Great ales in tip-top condition, a real sun trap outside drinking area and excellent value local food such as gray pays and bacon. A 'must visit' when in Wolverhampton. 10/10.

A visit to Wolverhampton to tick off a few Good Beer Guide pubs.

I knew before I left home that this would be the best of the night and it didn't disappoint.

Great Bathams and a really good atmosphere.

Highly recommended.
