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

Old-school pub set between light industrial units and opposite a housing estate, self-described as a 'Bar & Grill' which seems improbable as you cross the basic front patio. The bar area is fairly plain, but some of the furniture is more modern than one might expect. The surprise comes further back where a fair-sized dining room can be found, together with an operational kitchen with a menu that is hardly unsophisticated but cheap and clearly serving local workers coming off shift. Facilities then extend to a slightly split-level, partly covered rear patio garden. No real ale of course, but at least the Worthington Smoothflow is only £2.30.

Soup Dragon left this review about Manchester Stores

Plain brick detached corner pub, possibly 40s/50s, with beer patio.

The interior had two rooms and it was like a game of two halves. The bar was modern, with the plain red wall look, pool table and a punchbag machine in the corner. A few old pictures of Oldbury and Villa on the Sky TV didn't ease my slight worry in being caught between to drunks at the bar. I fought my way past the smokers at the front door and entered the lounge. Also modern, with yellow walls and wood panel, it was less scary. A big screen TV had the Villa on. There were leather seats and a brown sofa (a requirement for a publican these days), alas ripped and the carpet was pretty worn. They did food. The service was friendly though and the clientel in the lounge, mature and human.

Beer; sadly just usual tap stuff, with Banks's MILD. No real ale, but Pedigree on keg. MILD was ok.

Not really worth the effort
