Since last message , a further lot of changes:- Out goes the old in in comes the new?????? Beer crap but I think that they may use the let overs to clean you car ...... Seem to spent more time on the car cleaning side than the pub....

The Swan Inn, Halesowen

Has had it's moments with trouble.A small carpark at front and a little garden for the kiddies.Serves food(nowt special)and usual keg beers.
Would not break a sweat to go for a special night out drink.
It's allright if you want a pee and are passing

The Swallows Nest, Halesowen

Just up the road from the Sun at Romsley and a lot better.The place has been changed but not lost all its old charm.
Food well served and staff quite friendly.Beer like all these chain pubs is of secondly value.(Drinkable)But mainly a food house.Good sized car park but not well served by local buses.
Nice views over the black county

The Sun Inn, Romsley

A pity this pub was altered,No atmosphere,nothing special to go for a drink for.Food over priced (and under portioned).
Great area but spoiled by this changed pub.
Gordon Ramsey could even fail with this one.

The Sir Robert Peel, Rowley Regis

Little has moved on with the Robert Peel.A lovely little pub with most of the original features.Two small drinking rooms and the passage (witch serves as another)
Little if any food(snacks mainly)but a good draught beer pub.
No car park so you can park in the street
(no restrictions)
Well worth a visit ,just a short walk out of Blackheath towards top church (Dudley)

The Perry Hill Tavern, Oldbury

Alot has happened with the Perry Hill... Now a very busy pub.... Food and music in plentful supply.
a large car park and a good sized beer garden makes this a nice estae pub....Well worth the visit

The Monarch, Quinton

Yuo must be joking......Safety helmet/flack jacket and a paid up insurance policy required for this pub.this is the only pub where you can light up /fight your corner/drink and still have change from your last drug deal

Lutley Oak, Halesowen

Has had a major re-fit(for the better)Mainly an eating house with all the usual facilities .
Large screen TV/food all day(2 for the price of one)gets them in early.Nothing special from the chain pub.
OK to take the kiddiewinkes for the food.A large carpark and a larger umbrella for the smokers.

The Loyal Lodge, Halesowen

A little of the beaten track.Large size rooms for the Saturday night singsong. Staffs are normally on the ball ,with little if any waiting.Keg ciders/lager and a reasonable food menu.
Gaffer pleasant and a clean well run little pub

The Lighthouse, Halesowen

Clean and re-furb since it was torched by a member of staff a few years ago.
Good sized car park and a nice sized rear garden for the smokers.Enville is best option for the dranght drinkers and the usual amount of keg stuff available.
New tennant in charge and hopefully can change the boring menu (which has been for sometime)and perhaps get the pub back to what it was a few years ago.Saturday nights must have the slowest/ignorant staff in the west Midlands.

The Jolly Sailor, West Bromwich

Seen better days,With the closing of most of the local factories it is suffering from lack of investment.
Was a good little pub many/many years ago.
Dont be upset if you miss this one.
Good size front car park.

The Island Inn, West Bromwich

It is a good basic curry/beer pub.Was many years ago the WMTA social club and was sold off to some Indians who specialise in curries etc...dont go if you want class and an evening to remember as it is a estate drinking facility and dont go when the local football team are at home.

Hollybush, Smethwick

Old pub by the side of old Church. As yet brewery has not made a pigs ear out the refurbs.
Only hope that they can leave well alone.Quaint pub with a limited selection of draughts ales.
part of the Mitchells stable.
Nice/cheap food on lunchtime and worth poping in for a lunchtime

The Hawne Tavern, Halesowen

Great little old fashioned pub.Good selection of ever changing draught beer.Has changed a lot since the Non-Smoking ban..Was like an opium den,but now a pleasant out of the way local.
Food available at lunch time and with two rooms and a nice rear garden area.
Plenty of street parking outside the pub.Well worth a pint

The George, Oldbury

Old 30's pub and has had many guises over it's lifetime.
currently a mixture of an eating and drinking house.
Food ok and priced competativly and drinks are much of a muchness.
Nothing special to make a out of the way visit .

Forge, Halesowen

Small pub trying to make a living.One room which leads on to main road and a small garden on the side.
Was an old Ansells pub many years ago and has been "modernised" sometime ago into what is their today.
Have been in many times but the licencee changes frequently as the brewery(Brains)try to recoup a bad investment from a pub in this beer drinking area.A little side carpark on the lefthand side.
A bit of draught beers mainly Brains.

The Dog, Smethwick

What a pity.... from one of the last remaining coaching inn type with ALL the old world charms to a usual bland food/bland draught beers/bland atmosphere.
OK for a drink on the way home (out of Birmingham) otherwise carry on elsewhere.

The Crown, Old Hill

A nice little old pub... Still retaining alot of the old pub.Two small bar areas,serving draught Banks Mild/Bitter as well as the usual keg.
Some times a quiz on fridays but a nice little pub to pop into.
Large off street car park

Coombs Wood Sports and Social Club, Halesowen

Great little club.... part of a cricket club set up so its a good Saturday afternnon out watching a bit of cricket and drinking a good selection of draught ales from this small bar area.

Chaplins, Rowley Regis

Can confirm pub is still shut

The Black Horse, Halesowen

A nice pub to pop in on the way home off the M5 motorway.Standard chain decor and standard pub food
(not all that cheap and nothing different)
a bit of draught beer (expensive for the area)and have quizzes on etc...sit outside in the sun and get a mouth full of carbon monoxide as the rushing cars whizzby.
Pity to spend more on the carpark than of the outside facitlites.

The Beech Tree, Blackheath

Pity to agree with the above comments. Having used that pub many years ago (Have kept a wide birth since)Pass the pub daily and A pity but it must change managers more time than any other pub i've seen
It has no car park and well worth a visit (if you want your head punched)
