Magnificent Victoriana, is probably two words that sum this pub up best. Architecturally superb, insane tummy level serving hatch so you canít look staff in the face, and all the Sarah Hughes beers on tap, which are brewed on site. Lovely big garden, conservatory, little snugs dotted about, and lets not forget the manager, Alexandra Marchant, is both charming and beautiful. A real tucked away Black Country gem. Wonderful.

Visited during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Solid place. Great garden out back. Good beers. Unique bar (you have to see it). Friendly staff. Definitely worth visiting if you are nearby.

A quirky brewery and pub Ė well worth a visit. Thereís been a brewery here since 1921 (or so the sign says) and in fact it looks like an old fashioned brewery in miniature with a pub tacked onto the front. Thereís a tiny central bar with two or three small hatches at waist height and the pump clips face inwards so you have to find the blackboard with the list of beers and then bend down to poke your head through the hatch to get served. Iíd have thought it contravenes some health and safety regulation or other because the bar staff must be permanently stooped. Having said that, itís charming. Thereís a drinking corridor, a couple of snugs and a smoke room leading into a conservatory, plus an area to sit outside in the brewery yard at the back. When we visited on the Ratebeer Black Country Bash they had three guest ales on draught alongside their own three flagship beers. (Visited 6 July 2013).

Quirky! One of the oddest serving arrangement Iíve ever seen, a belly button level serving hatch. Canít look the staff in the face. Nice side bar and nice garden. Watch out for the tiled floor - slippery fucker when wet! Solid beers here if a narrow selection. All in all well worth a visit.

Visited on the RB Black Country bus trip - first visit here for some 12 years! Cracking Victoriana boozer on a large plot of land. The interior is split into a number of rooms and the engine of this pub is the serving hatch near the main entrance. You litterally have to stoop to one of the hatches to get served, there is no bar per say! Beers featured 3 or 4 offerings from Sarah Hughes whoís brewery is on site. Guests from Oakham and Newark, all the beers were in good nick. A large beer garden is out the back and we sat outside in a small pavillion taking some shade onboard. Cracking place.

Excellent Brewpub included in many a Black Country pub tour. Multi roomed, all with their own character, interesting serving hatches, lots of locals. Top notch.

Visited during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Awesome place. The Beaconís a massive free-standing pub with a large beer garden and play area in the back. Sarah Hughes brewery is located right on the back side of the building. The selectionís not large, but the standard of the beerís quite good. There were 3-4 Sarah Hughes beers on plus a couple of guests from Newark and Oakham. The prices were solid. Overall, strongly recommended.

What a wonderful pub this is. Panelled walls, old benchs, numerous rooms with small hatches to order your beer. An excellent place to spend a day or night. Sarah Hughes beers, Sadlers and Oakham beers. All top quality beers.

The traditional Tower Brewery and Beacon Hotel of Sarah Hughes is a very welcoming place, the locals and staff are friendly and the beers top notch at all times. The old till in the central bar is worth seeing, let alone trying all the Sarah Hughes beers on tap, Sedgley Surprise and the famous Dark Ruby Mild to name but two. The serving area covers all drinking areas and must be difficult to work in, with screens and openings on all sides, certainly not your ordinary bar space. No Black Country tour would be complete without a visit here for any roaming beer lover, my 6th visit was in March 2012.
