Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Stumble Inn

Doesn't look much from the road; indeed most of the exterior signage is seemingly absent, but the interior is tidy enough. This features a two-part bar, with a pool table in the smaller part by the entrance and a larger, slightly split-level seating / stage area to the left, all plainly decorated but furnished in a semi-traditional way. Also has a small front terrace. Three of four handpumps in use, avoiding usual suspects and offering Neepsend ?Lepna, Abbeydale Brewbell Wood and Ossett Big Red (£3.20).

Update: the place remains the same as mine and the other excellent reviews. It is musically driven. I have always found the service fine ( i visit every few months, usually for one or a half of each ale they have on). They still keep the 3-4 ales on, and what is good is that they are not common ones in this area in general: Elgood's Lazy Dog, Bingley's Goldy Locks Blonde and Neepsend Godgifu last night for example (all in good nick).
Nov 2009: A white rendered detached pub, with green paintwork and beer garden.

The interior is open plan with a stage area as it is a pub that has music every Saturday night and jamming sessions on weeknights, hence the seating is arranged to view the stage area (though why there are Xmasy tree type lights around it i cant say). There is also a pool and darts area. The decor is yellowish and wood panel, with a brick bar and just a few bits of ephemera around. There was a TV, silent, and various types of background music, at an ok level. Service was good and clientele more maturer and plenty of them!

Beer; the pub had the usual taps, though much more choice - 3 draught ciders for example, yet sadly, no MILD was to be found. On the plus side there are 4 real ales, though one had finished. There others were Hobgoblin, Stormway Premium Ale and a decent Cottage Brewery DB5

Its a decent place - I will drop by more frequently from now on

I have visited this pub on many occasions and most recently visited over the three days of last weekend (10th - 12th Sept 2010) for the 'Stumble Inn Beer Festival 2010' with a choice of 20 beers in addition to 6 Ciders and Perry's. All being different from last years offerings. My attendance was early afternoon till early evening and from a slow start on Friday each day was well frequented and the evenings were, I am told very well attended. The premises themselves actually has two rooms a large open plan room on two levels with dance floor and stage area adjacent to the bar also there is also a smaller sized room at the opposite end of the bar (which housed the pool table during the weekend) I think this is usually in another area of the main room at all other times. On the Sunday there was live entertainment in the afternoon, a country singer (not really my taste). There was plenty of food available from homemade curry to pies,pastys and samosas and also filled rolls and all food was of good quality, I sampled quite a bit over the three days. Aside from the Festival, the pub generally has 2 to 4 guest beers or real ales on Tap and hosts regular live music events and jam nights/afternoons. The pub and beers always seem well kept and the place does feel quite welcoming. 2011 Beer Festival is due to go ahead from 9th - 11th September

Close to the A5 and near the new Ramada hotel, this has for a while now been a stand out for real ale in the Cannock area.

Its a one roomed pub that is famous for a patron winning a competition to have Status Quo play at your local! Its a one room opened up pub with comfortable seating at the top and more tables/chairs closer to the bar. There is a small stage and they have regular music events. The lighting is low, perhaps giving the feel of a back street 'divey' (for want of a better word) rock bar, but its not really, it always appears neat and tidy.

They had four real ales on, and qualtity was good, though the quality and service on visits have been a little hit and miss, but its usually a hit.

So it wouldn't be everybody's cup of tea, but I personally I like it.
