We looked for a pub with a historic background, recognised by CAMRA and close to the canal, We hit the jackpot!! What an amazing pub with a real old pub feel about it and the beer was second to none. Hayley and Dave made themselves known and the staff very friendly. We have been on a canal boat for four months and this place was one of a handful of pubs we would love to come back too.

Thanks again - Brian and Jenn

I use this pub every time I am in Wolverhampton has I love the atmosphere and there is always a good selection of the different Ales available.
I was there Saturday night 8th July and they had Megan Reece from the voice singing/performing outside in the beer garden which was a nice surprise.
I would recommend you pay a visit to this pub when you are in Town.

It's a beer shop, pure and simple. About 10 real ale pulls (plus gassy rubbish) of all calibres. Bar staff try to please (and succeed) but gaffers should be less restrained (i.e. they gravitate towards regulars). Canned music, albeit soto voce, tends to irritate: ambience is golden, a la George Orwell! All ales are really well kept (with perhaps the intrusion of nitrogen?) and averagely priced. All ​in all, a good place to meet friends. 4*

The craft beers hold their own in the midst of the other pubs in the area, as well as bottles from Belgium (Kwak is a fav). This historic pub has a nice beer garden a nice atmosphere and is well worth the visit.

There are always a good range of guest beers available, where you can always ask for a taster if you are unsure. It does get busy on match days but don't let that put you off, as service is always brisk
