user reviews of the Bell Wether, Wednesbury

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

First stop of the day on a Friday visit to the West Midlands was this Wetherspoon's branch in Wednesbury's town centre. Just time for a breakfast and a pint before setting about visiting a dozen new pubs for me. Fairly typical 'spoons with an open-plan layout, including a raised area for family dining. Service was quick and friendly. Greene King Abbot & Ruddles Best are the regular ales. Guests were Brentwood Blonde, Sadler's Peaky Blinder, The Beer Studio Heatwave & Backyard Blonde. Ciders were Weston's Old Rosie & Thistly Cross Whisky Cask. Not a bad start to the day. Moved on from here to the Old Blue Ball, a fabulous unspoiled backstreet local that is not listed on BITE. A perfect contrast to the Bellwether.

Typical JDW, cheaper than a lot of `em though. Would you go out of your way to visit though? Wednesbury seems like a lot of small West Midlands towns - struggling with the current economic climate and lack of opportunity...doesn`t help that the locals give you the `stranger in town` look...make your own mind up!

A most unusual location to my mind for a JDW, and besides its usual livery it would not immediately leap out as such to the casual passer-by. I assumed this was a recent addition to their stable, but apparently it recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, so what do I know?
We found a reasonable range of cask ales, and each was found in good nick. Prices were predictably low and it probably resulted in the cheapest round of our entire holiday (we had moored at Wednesbury for the night while on a canal trip; it would have been a pretty perverse choice for a holiday destination otherwise!). The pub is spacious and clearly caters for the family market in the area, particularly those who might consider some of the older outlets to be a little rough round the edges...

Relatively unexceptional otherwise, although after a hard day's work on the locks and in other pubs beforehand, perhaps I'm not best qualified to judge. I'm sure the consistency of Wetherspoon management will ensure this pub stays above the acceptable water-line of standards, even if some of its nearby counterparts might struggle, in what is a community which has plainly seen better days.

Took the whole family here this afternoon. Sunday roasts were ordered and arrived before I had chance to drink my pint of Banks's Chocoloate MILD. At �1.49 this hand pulled pint was unbelievable value. There was a pleasant family atmosphere, a very peaceful time was had. The food was excellent, plenty of it nice and tasty and at �18.45 for the five of us including 4 drinks a real bargain. Toilets were clean and smelled fresh. Good friendly service. - 14 May 2006 19:43
