The Wheatsheaf is situated a little way out of town next to two schools. It doesn't open until 4pm during the week. I arrived to find just two other customers and a cat in the centre of the bar. One turned out to be the landlord (not the cat). The ale range is fairly decent - Oakham Citra, Holdens Golden Glow & Wye Valley Butty Bach were the regular ales. 2 guests were also on - AJ's Stuck In the Mud & Beowulf Dark Raven. I quite enjoyed my Stuck In The Mud. But unfortunately there was no real cider. No CAMRA discount was offered either. The interior is L-shaped, creating two separate drinking areas. A fairly decent option when in Walsall.

Now closed - just a couple of weeks after featuring in the new GBG. Strange.

Im very pleased to say that the Wheatsheaf changed hands 6 months ago, and is now an altogether more welcoming pub. Gone are the chilly temperature & smell of bleach! The new owners have even installed a coal fire in one seating area, which combined with the comfy sofas, completes the Living Room ambience which the previous owners had let down with a few niggles.

The beer selection now includes Taylors Landlord, which we found to be in perfect condition. We didnt get around to trying the others (Black Sheep Bitter, Doombar) such was the quality of the Taylors Landlord.

The friendly new owners seem to have the right attitude to make this attractive pub succeed. Its location, a few minutes walk from Ablewell Street in Walsall, is easily accessible via local buses, but just quiet enough not to be spoilt. We had planned to move on to the nearby White Lion, but couldnt imagine what better it could offer. If they can keep or even improve the real ale range, I think the Wheatsheaf could easily become one of the most promising pubs in Walsall.

The temperature is certainly rising in this pub! I'm glad to report that the heating is on and it is now warm.

The food is tasty, with good portions and reasonable prices. Best of all, there is a range of ales which seem to suit my palate, particularly the Timothy Taylor Landlord, but all are interesting and kept to a high standard by an enthusiastic publican.

Friendly staff and management, who are prepared to go that extra mile. We have twice called in outside "normal times" for food, and been gratified with good service as well as a good meal.

Finally, for a bit of harmless fun, I can also recommend the monthly quiz night

Only one ale on Sharp's Doombar which was good but for a CAMRA rated pub I expected more. Friendly bar-bloke though, who was advising another non-local of a decent curry-house nearby. Local knowledge always good and staff able to recommend other establishments without fear if also good.

I would return but I'd hope for more ales available.
