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

Sizeable pub with some modest Tudorbethan features both inside and on the main and side façades. Fairly basic two-part bar at the front, with a rear function room and signage in the car park indicating a separate lounge somewhere at the back. Basic furniture and limited decor, with the pool table by the entrance and two sports TVs being the only things to catch the eye. There are also a few wooden benches out front, optimistically placed for those enamoured by the passing traffic or the industrial estate beyond the River Tame floodwalls. Two very disused handpumps, so it had to be the Worthington Smoothflow (£3.20).

This is a detached pub, with patio area. The pub is an Edwardian-ish rebuild of an earlier pub on the same site, of the same name. It once had a bowling green, but this is now the car-park. The pub is mock-Tudor-ish, with a white painted brick lower and a beam and daub upper that is now yellow with chocolate beams.The projecting gables and tall stacks are the main features. The interior has a couple of rooms and a conservatory, but i only accessed the main bar room - which is quite long. This was in red and cream - walls and beamed ceiling. There is red bench seating and a few tables and chairs. There is a dart board one end and a pool table area the other. The TV had the news on and there was no music. A few old photos are on the walls for interest. The service was friendly, as were the mature locals that formed the clientele. Beer; no real ale, just usual tap stuff - the Banks's MILD not being on. I had a shandy. I found this place to be a friendly locals pub - just a pity about the basic beer choice. Nice to return for the first time since the 80s.
