Enjoyed our visit to this friendly locals pub which features in the 2019 Good Beer Guide. There were 4 handpumps which feature 2 beers that are on, and the next 2 which are settling in the cellar. We enjoyed Oakham Jester and Olde Swan Bumblehole. The 2 coming next were a Salopian and another Oakham. There is a lovely big garden at the rear which will be great in the summer months.

This is what looks like a mid 20th century built pub, despite the beams inside that I also thought were fake.
Inside it's a single L shaped room and a nice garden at the rear with proper grass and a small marquee. There is a small alcove on the left which is the darts area and a poster indicated they have two teams here. There were two large TV screens which were both off despite the Wimblebore being on and a CD player was on at a reasonable level. The manageress here seemed almost as obsessive about the beer as me which I thought was good. When I arrived it was just Oakham Bishop's Farewell on but she said she was about to put on their Citra and Salopian Hop Twister. this left just Thornbridge Jaipur settling or in JDW terminology "available soon". I tried the Bishop's Farewell which was OK but may have been the tail end of the cask then the Citra (excellent) and finally a couple of Hop Twisters which were outstanding.
I normally associate this sort of Community Local with being a keg only dump like the London ones I used to play darts in roughly thirty years ago so it's nice to find one with decent beer and at a reasonable price as all beers tried were £3.10. This one is well worth a visit and I would happily return.

Rather bare unassuming old fashioned Coseley centre pub, but it makes up for it by being tidy, friendly and with 6 real ales. A locals pub, its also worth the walk from the railway station to support the ales.
