Waggon & Horses in Oldbury

First actual visit to this renowned heritage pub (as my previous attempt a couple of years ago was stymied by it being shut for a period). It certainly looks quite interesting from the road, although you get the impression that the next-door shop might once have been part of the premises? The bar at the front is dominated by the impressive bar-back, but the less-obvious Holt Brewery 'squirrel' window caught my attention later. There is some fine tiling in the central corridor, and also in the bar and rear room when you start to look a bit harder. Four of five handpumps in use, with Pedigree, Butty Bach and AJ's Best (£2.70) plus Old Rosie cider available.

I dived into this compact street corner pub on a bit of a whim, being at a bit of a loose end in a part of town unfamiliar to me, and was pleased to find a decent little boozer, The pub is well lit, thanks to two sides being dominated by the large banded windows that run along them, letting plenty of light into this small bare boarded space. The servery is on the back wall and has a simple dark wood counter enhanced by modern hand and foot rails and a large, unattractive bar back, the saving grace of which is the door to one side with fine etched glass panes in the door and above. Standard tables and chairs run around the perimeter of the room whilst a couple of high tables and stools have been positioned in the centre, with a fair bit of space left in between for people to stand in relative comfort. The pub felt quite well-to-do to me, being full of people in suits and snappy dresses, but the décor is considerably more down-to-earth, with a St George’s Cross flag on the back wall and six nations flags hung around the ceiling. Elsewhere, there are framed portraits where the subject’s head has been replaced by that of an animal for no apparent reason, several plain mirrors and blackboards promoting food. A TV screen in one corner was turned off but a pop music soundtrack underscored the buzz of conversation. Menus were supplied to each table, rolled up and stuffed into ancient looking pewter tankards.
The pub offers two ales, which on this occasion were Fullers London Pride and Purity Mad Goose, with the latter weighing in at £4.50 a pint and in pretty good condition. The barmaid seemed pretty icy at first, but seemed to thaw a little, which is a little unusual for a pub that must get plenty of passing trade.
I’m glad I gave this little pub a try, as I thought it was quite a nice spot in which to enjoy a decent pint and watch the world go by through the windows. The limited beer range will be an off-putting factor to some, but if you’re looking for an unpretentious pub in this part of town, you could definitely do a lot worse.

Another book preview, I'm afraid, as we count down to the publication of Austerity!. This time it's the fun topic of Scotch Ale. [INDENT]"Scotch Ale I’m only going to consider strong Scotch Ales as being in this category. Scottish Shilling Ales – 60/-, 70/- and 80/- are just types of Pale Ale. Scottish ....

This is really upsetting news. I would like to say how much I have enjoyed looking at Alan's photos. He has created a wonderful historical record of pubs. I would like to send my best regards to him.
