Very cosy Victorian pub. Very friendly staff and customers. Excellent atmosphere. Black Country beers on sale as well as 8 guests, two of which are good ciders. Good prices.

Love this pub! Cosy little pub tucked into a walsall side street. In the winter there is always a lovely open fire to warm you up after a cold walk. 10 real ales and ciders on the pulls including 3 black country ales beers which are always on and 7 rotating real ales and ciders. The beer is always spot on and kept well; Iíve never had a pint which is on the turn in here! There are crusty cobs and pork pies available from the bar and basic but good pub meals in the afternoons until 3 and in the evenings 6-9. The best thing about this pub is the excellent beer and the really friendly atmosphere! The landlord and lady are always smiling and laughing and everyone feels welcome!

One of the best pubs in the area. A lovely old traditional boozer in the backstreets of Walsall. This place has not changed a lot in years and its like taking a step back to the Victorian age. There is a lounge and a saloon with a lovely traditional wooden bar between the two and a wonderful tiled walkway linking them. Both bars have a lovely wood burning fire and the ales to go with them on a cold winter night. There are ten real ales that regularly rotate. There is always something new here. The landlord is very friendly and knowledgeable too and the pub has a real friendly local feel to it. Itís a short trek from the centre of town, but its well worth the walk. For anyone driving, parking locally is no problem.

Formerly the Tap and Spile. This place is a homely, snug local, which appears to have been decorated recently. 8 handpulls with some reasonably tasty local options. This is a another Black Country brewery pub, and is worth seeking out, being just a 5 minute walk from the train station.
