As my last visit, but busier due to time & day (Friday evening).

As noted below, this one has been given an excellent makeover by Black Country Ales. Sadly the L shaped carpeted bar area suffers from the Curse Of Sky Sports which everybody seemed to be ignoring. The small lounge to the right is a welcome refuge from this dross.
There are ten hand pumps which on my Wednesday evening visit had one unused, a kiddies strength Sloe Cider, a Corvedale beer, Wye Valley HPA and the three BCA beers doubled. For a Black Country Ales outlet this was a disappointment but this one is probably too far from the town centre to make it a destination pub being more of a local. I went for the Wye Valley HPA (£3.10) which was in good nick.
I don't know if they do more guest ales at a weekend but simply as a local boozer this one is OK.

Two bar pub in Brewers Tudor in a group of three about 10 mins walk from railway station, one of which The Woodman being in the GBG. Owned by Black Country Ales its in very good decorative order, recent refurbished perhaps. 9 beers mostly BCA of course and a hand pulled cider, there are a half dozen kegs from the national collection. Darts and fruit machine along with piped music. A decent place and good quality beer.
