This pub was not originally on my agenda for the day but my route took me straight past it and as it was advertised as the Black Country Brewery Tap I took the immediate decision to scrap the visit to the Red Cow which involved a detour and come in here instead.
Inside it's a comfortable carpeted lounge bar with the bar facing and a TV screen showing footbore at the far end plus a dart board near the entrance.
I got the impression there was probably another room but didn't investigate.
On the bar there were eight hand pumps with one unused but to be fair the staff were working on the beer choice while I was there.
The beers available included the usual three Black Country ales, Pig on the Wall, BFG and Fireside, Sadler's Hop Bomb, Country Life Devonshire Piglet and a Hartshorn Porter. As it was the Brewery Tap I went for the BFG which was in very good condition. The main thing that put me off this place was the muzak which seemed to be made up of easy listening from the 1960s and awful Xmas tracks. I was almost tempted to ask them to turn up the TV!
Despite this it is the home of Black Country Ales and as such is definitely worth a visit.

Nice old pub very traditionally decorated in brown tongue & groove with cream walls above, furnishing is traditional as well with benches and cast iron based tables, a couple of which have built in crib' boards. One end of the long front room is raised to provide space for darts, fruit machine, a big screen and occasional live music. There is another bar at the back with a pool table and and bench seating. A Black Country Ales pub (the brewery is behind the pub), there are four pulls in the front and three more in the back bar selling their range in excellent condition. Out the back is a posh shelter and the pub is home to a large soppy dog.

The Old Bulls Head is the tap of the Black Country Ales Brewery so it seemed rude not to pop in whilst visiting the Fountain over the road. This is a good sized single room pub with a bar that supports four or five hand pumps that were drawing BCA brews. Sky Sports is advertised, but the large plasma screen was airing a muted daytime antiques program during my late Friday afternoon visit a month ago.

It wasn’t very busy, but I enjoyed my fleeting visit and would have no problem returning.
