Soup Dragon left this review about The Fingerpost

A detached self-styled pub and eatery, in cream render with a middle front facing gable, perched on the canal and road bridge at Pelsall. Formerly the Royal Oak, it has a patio area

The interior is open plan, almost F-shaped and is set more for the food than drinkers, i think. The serving bar is to the right when you enter from the car park way and there is a small drinking area with comfy seats and pouffes along with a TV, which was showing BBC4. It is modern decor; so coffee, chocolate wood panel, purples, red and black alternating walls along with the bistro art on the walls. I didn't eat here so i can't comment on that. The service was friendly, as was the dog that tried to finish my drink. The clientele seem like a couple of blokes drinking and no diners really - the music was general and at a nice level.

The beer; usual tap stuff, with a couple of real ale handpulls. I did't note what they were at my last visit, but i know i had a decent Hobgoblin there on a previous visit.

Not really a place i would visit just to drink, but I would come to try the food, as i know i would get a decent pint.

Formerly the Royal Oak, this place has recently been extensively refurbished and re-opened as a food-orientated pub selling a couple of moreish cask ales. Food itself is pleasant enough but perhaps not as gastro as I would have expected. Located at Yorks Bridge alongside the Wyrley and Essington Canal it's worth a stop off in the summer. If arriving by car the car park is fairly small so you may have to park on Norton Road.
