Brilliant Holden’s railway pub. I struggled getting here - the obvious shortcut from the station up Corn Hill was closed - but having got here, I was well rewarded. Four Holden’s beers (Bitter, Mild, Special and Golden Glow) are available, along with a handful of guest beers from the likes of Bathams and Ludlow. A few Belgians in the fridge, and two cask ciders. What more could you want? Well, the pork pies are out of this world, and the whole place is cheap even for the area.

Although in a rough part of Wolverhampton, just a short walk from the station away from the town centre. A very welcoming pub serving great beers from the Black Country such as Bathams and Holdens plus the odd guest beer nowadays. Traditional food aswell as just a bowl of chips or "cobs" (large rolls). Gets very busy on matchdays. One of my favourite pubs of all time as it has so much character.

Traditional boozer selling Holden’s and Bathams beers and good Black Country food. At the back of the Railway Station but worth the trek!

Visited during the 2013 RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Lovely boozer. Lots of seating. Loaded with simple session beers all of great value. Novel decor. While this might not be a destination pub for beer geeks, it would make for a perfect spot to sink many pints of bitters and goldens. Worth checking out.

A great old pub almost under the railway arch near the old Victorian station building (now disused - the new station is a short walk away). They have three Holden’s beers on draught and an ever changing list of three guest ales. The pub is “themed” (but in a good way!) – it’s like an old station bar ought to be, with lots of railway paraphernalia, such as platform signs and pictures of steam trains, right down to the curtains and pelmets bearing the Great Western Railway logo. There’s a “waiting room” sign in the main bar, which was appropriate because it was here that we met and waited for the coach to take us on the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. There’s also a modern conservatory bar (the Armstrong Room) and a pleasant modern patio.

Big ol’ characterful pub just by Wolverhampton station. Nice front bar, big airy side bar. Lots of wood and memorabilia, Beers were in good nick and the service quick and friendly. Just a proper old boozer that deserves your attention if you are in the area.

Visited during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Sort of a tough place to find if you’re unfamiliar with the area (you need to take the subway under the station to get to the pub). Pretty traditional interior with a bunch of Great Western Rail memorabilia decorating the walls. There’s about 8 beers on cask. Mostly Holdens stuff with a few other options from the west midlands. The beer was in good condition, the service pleasant. Overall, definitely a place to check out if you’re in Wolverhampton.

A Wolvo legend. Last visited in 2009, was a regular here on my way to Thursday night shift in the late 90’s. Pre work dinner of 2 pints bitter and faggots/grey peas!
Opposite the former GW station, full of railway memorabilia, 3 rooms in essence plus the conservatory.
Very well kept Holdens offerings, plus guest, something from Bathams usually on also.
Must visit - proper boozer, inhabited by PO workers, beer enthusiasts, rail enthusiasts, regulars and football fans (home and away usually - although they dont officially welcome away fans!) on a match day.

Cracking back street pub behind the main Railway Station. There is a great atmosphere here, good value beers and always good conditioned beers. It is Dave Andrew’s favourite pub and that has to be good enough for anybody. The food is good too.

Very good Holdens pub with several guest beers. Nice atmosphere I will probably be a regular visitor here on the way home from work.
