Aqualung . left this review about Royal George

This pub is situated directly opposite the Willenhall JDW but on my Thursday visit just after 11:00 it was doing a good trade. A picture at the rear of the pub reveals that this was once a Mitchell & Butler house but it had no external signage as it was being given a makeover. It was clearly once at least three different rooms but is now all knocked into one. The area as you enter from the street is the main public bar area. There is another area to the right of this with a bar billiard table and on my visit a couple of locals playing dominoes. The larger area to the rear is the lounge that also has a wheelchair friendly entrance from the patio that looks like it was originally a car park. The toilets are also to the rear here and have a door with a window that says Smoke Room Gentlemen Only.
Although there are four hand pumps in the public and lounge bar areas on they were identical with one unused, Old Rosie cider turned, Holden's Golden Glow and Wye Valley Butty Bach. The Golden Glow (£2.80) was first class.
Despite the limited beer choice I liked this place and would return. It gets a strong 7.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Royal George

Corner pub, which is larger than it first appears because it comprises a 'L'-shaped layout that isn't immediately obvious. The main bar at the front has a compact servery diagonally opposite the entrance and little furniture, but the opened-out room beyond is more of a lounge; both decorated with a variety of pictures on all walls. The second bar at the back is perhaps a touch larger but rather plainer in appearance. Despite the Irish-style writing on the façade, real ale is very much part of the offer, with Old Speckled Hen, Butty Bach, Backyard Bitter (£2.80) and Old Rosie cider available from a total of eight handpumps on the two counters.

UPDATE: This pub has had an exterior makeover - it is now in cream and chocolate, with the rustication in yellow. The interior is being refurbished as i write this - the front room is yellow and wood panel. The pub remains open and now has 4 real ale handpulls with; Spekky Hen, Worthingtons Bitter, Enville Ale and Highgate MILD - the MILD was a little warm, but great to see and we are in the middle of a heatwave!

(Jan 2011) A detached corner pub in part white painted brick and part white fake stone look, with some black paint work. There is a patio area.

The interior is open plan, all around the central serving bar area. The decor is white artex and beamy walls with a creamy colour beamed ceiling and wood floor - that is if you can see the walls and ceiling. The pub has green seats and is jammed with electic ephemera, brasses, bottles, pictures, old signs and photographs all over the place and a collection of old jugs hanging down from the ceiling. There was no music and the TV had the racing and footy on. The service is fine and it is a locals place really.

Beer; all tap stuff, no real ale - had Highgate MILD which was fine, perhaps a little too cold.

A pub worth popping in for to see the stuff inside rather than the beer choice - having visited a couple of times, unless it got a real ale in, i wouldn't bother again - but if you are happy with the keg stuff, have a look for one!
