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.

Good value Holden’s outlet, a bit food orientated for my liking but nice and old fashioned.

Still a classic Railway Pub.
Nearly always busy, with locals and Post Office workers from the huge sorting office close by, it is a very friendly place. The dodgy alleyway from the main station is now brightly lite and safer than in the past.
The Real Ale beers are always in fine form and served with a smile.
Holdens own the pub, so their beers are to the fore, with another Black Country brewer, Batham’s also on draught.
The food is good value, large torpedo sized rolls and chips being the prefered choice of the locals.
Railway and Wolverhampton in its heyday pictures cover the walls. The Black Country, is now no longer the hub of British industry, but back a few years, the sky was blocked out by the smoke from all the factories and works, the Black Country name comes from those turn of the century days.
Well worth finding.

Very close to the train station, but tucked sort of next to an arch under the line. It took me years to find it, but now seems obvious - there is even one exit from the station that leads straight there! A few Black Country ales including at least 1 Mild and some Holdens beer. Railway themed, quaint and homely. A good place.
