Iíd never been in here before as when I was a local I had not been converted to real ale. Iíd been in some great pubs on a Black Country tour but this was the best in my opinion. Friendly staff, friendly locals and a fantastic range of ale. If I lived close by Iíd probably never leave.

Solid boozer that had a great range of casks in very average condition, usually very flat & watery in taste!
Their Bathams is consistently the best pint.

Really traditional unchanged boozer on the outskirts of birmingham. Pretty good selection which was quite unexpected, both british and european beers on tap. Very friendly service and even friendlier locals.

An ordinary looking local pub with an extraordinary beer list. The Waggon and Horses looks unpromising from the outside but a glance at the beer board in the back room (with a supplementary one at the end of the bar), changes this perception immediately as itís a well chosen list with at least 14 draught ales and three ciders on tap. We visited on the Ratebeer Black Country Bash and couldnít have been made more welcome by the friendly landlord, who had laid on a stupendous buffet for us. We did our best to make a dent in it but Iíd imagine he didnít need to think about what to have for lunch or dinner for at least a week afterwards.

Stopped by during the RateBeer Black Country Bash. Solid spot overall. Only drank a few beers here as we had booked in the buffet and there absolute mounds of food to be eaten; so, I did my part, as you do. Great ambiance here. The clientele seemed pretty darn local. Well worth a visit if youíre passing by.

Well this place hasnít changed for decades clearly. That is a good thing. Marvellously characterful old pub. Good beers, good service. The spread they laid on for us was fab. The landlord is character as well. Fast friendly service. Great place!

Visited on the RB Black Country Bash - 6th July 2013. My last visit here was in early 2002 and I can honestly say the place hasnít changed a bit - just a few thousand beer barells in the meantime!
Medium sized Victorian boozer with a sizeable bar with 16 sticks of cask ales.
Cotleigh, Oakahm, Burton Bridge and Plain amongst others on our visit.
We had a buffet booked for our trip and at £6 a head was cracking vfm, we must only have got through around half of it!
A real locals pub and Bob the landlord, of some 25 years, popped by to chat to us.
Definately a place to hit on a black country crawl.

Visited during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. The Waggon & Horses is a real traditional, charming spot. It feels like it hasnít changed in 70 years. Sort of a cramped, narrow pub filled with local beer enthusiasts. There was a large number of cask beers available. By this point in the crawl the wind had been taken out of my sails a bit, so I didnít try too many beers. But what I did try was of good quality. The landlord, Bob, was a real card. Overall, a world class venue for what it is. Great.

A truly legendary Black Country pub, with its tilted floor and enormous throughput of beer, friendly customers and staff and welcoming manner to all. Top notch.
