The Manor Arms was my second stop of the day during my midweek visit to the West Midlands. My first pub had been the Four Crosses at Shelfield which is not listed on here. The Manor Arms didn't look too welcoming from the outside and its car park was empty, whereas the Boathouse at the end of the road looked busy. The Banks's sign outside didn't make it too appealing either. But inside felt like another world. The main bar area, without a bar counter makes the place feel very old and it is indeed one of the oldest pubs in the country. There are at least two other traditional rooms. As the Banks's sign suggested, the ale range is all from Marstons - Thwaites Wainwright, Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold, Banks's Bitter & Sunbeam & Jennings Cocker Hoop. Rolls and pork pies are available at £1.20 each. This is a fabulously well preserved and historic pub that deserves much more custom than it had during my Tuesday afternoon visit.

Excellent quaint pub run by family from Cheshire - as described in other reviews. We moored our narrowboat right outside on the towpath for the night - March 2012 - no one else about.

Found this pub today by a frozen canal in the mist and fell in love with it (or was it with the lovely little barmaid?). Good food, a good selection of beers, quick service, and the only beer pumps I've known that are in the same space as the drinking area. Yes it's unlikely a brick building has stood here since 1106 but likely the building has been rebuilt a few times.since then. A gem.

This is my favourite pub in Rushall. The oldest pub stories are completely untrue, but this is a lovely local pub with a good choice of nice beer, decent food, and a great proper pub atmosphere. The locals are extremely friendly, and the beer garden is excellent.

The building is a lovely rendered former farmhouse, largely 18th Century brick, but yes, it does reuse late medieval material. Inside is a mish-mash of little rooms all deck-out in the black and white. It lies by the Rushall Canal and the old limepits - its fabulous.

I am not going to get into the age argument, except that if i had a penny for each time i heard oldest pub claims, secret tunnel claims and claims of family trees they back to Nero (yes, i have had it!), i could buy a pint a week, and i dont mean at Spoons prices either!

There are the usual taps, hidden slightly under 6 real ale taps. It's a Banks's house, so it has cask MILD and bitter, Jennings Cocker Hoop, Ringwood Old Thumper, Marstons Lord Taverner's Ale (decent stuff)

Service and locals were friendly. I will be going again.
