Quinno _ left this review about Alexandra Inn

A quick wildcard visit here, and on approach we did wonder if we’d regret it (things have moved on since some of the older, more positive reviews here and elsewhere). This is now politely described as a basic locals boozer - laminate flooring, walls painted in what I jotted as ‘mushy overcooked pea green’, music video TV and a ragged dart board. Four pumps with one ale on, New Brew Nova Gold which was truly awful. Impressively, my replacement of Guinness was almost as bad, which takes some doing. Quite why Salopian still have their branding above the door, god only knows - but they should show up quick and paint it over. Summed-up viscerally by the two posters below, I need not write more. 1.5 (visited June)

Real Ale Ray left this review about Alexandra Inn

On our approach this pub looked promising, especially with a chalkboard outside promoting real ale, one of which was from Battlefields Brewery. On entry, I thought the pub was scruffy and there was noticeably ripped seat covering along the front bench, which was also filthy. This started to ring alarm bells. The landlady did run some beer off before serving the three of us, but the beer had that apparent appley taste, which was a good sign the beer was off. Unfortunately, the Guinness offered in exchange was also in dire condition. To sum up, stay well clear, unless the pub changes hands and receives experienced publicans, who take an interest in what they're doing.

Will Larter left this review about Alexandra Inn

I came in here with a splinter group from our crawl of the Wellington to Wolverhampton railway line, tired of the unremitting excellence of the pubs encountered so far. We'd been told there was sometimes a real ale or two on here, and on entry there turned out to be just the one, a solitary pump clip on the bank of four hand pumps. We were the only customers, and the landlady pulled a couple of pints through before pouring our three halves. On tasting, it was apparent that the beer was not in a drinkable condition. The landlord apologised and gave the feeble excuse of not being a real ale drinker himself and (therefore) not knowing how to keep it properly. Now I'm a betting shop manager by trade, and although I would never bet on roulette or numbers myself, I make it a point of professional pride to know how those games and those bets work.

Two of us accepted the offer of a Guinness instead of the undrinkable real ale, and it has to be said that this was not a very good drink either. This man said he'd been in the pub trade for more than 30 years. I reckon a novice just out of a three week training course would have a better idea of how to run a pub than this waste of space.
