Update: It has had a few name changes and, prompted by Just a Quick Pint's review below, I thought would give it a go. He is spot on, it is now one of those chain-foody places and it was mainly maturer people in. The service was fine. There are 5 hanpulls: Tim Taylor's Boltmaker and Landlord rotate with each other but have their own pumps it seems; added to this were Purity UBU and Salopian Lemon Dream, which happened to be the two guests in; while there is also a Titanic Plum Porter, which is a regular mine being ok. Now worth a look in.
Oct 2009: a 19th century brick terranced build, with part pinkish paint and the other half a dark wood look facade, with front beer patio.

The interior is open plan - also dark, mixing food tables with comfy kind of modern seats. I didnt see much else as the beer choice amounted to basic keg tosh, so i walked out. In the day its a mixed clientele place, but the couple of times i have been forced in on a night time, it is more younger based. It sums up Cannock really.

Not really my kind of place, you need a young 'uns impression of it here to get a fair review, but if you like real ale, forget it

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

Typical 'spoons-a-like Stonegate pub with a slightly split-level layout, semi-modern furniture / decor and plenty food / drink offers. Also has a row of metal patio tables out front. On the plus side, not a bad selection of real ales from four of the five handpumps: Landlord, Tribute, Salopian Lemon Dream (£2.85) and Titanic Plum Porter. The staff seemed fairly efficient too, making an effort to clear surfaces, etc.
