Quinno _ left this review about Old Bulls Head Inn

The original Black Country Ales brewpub. Looks lovely from the outside, the interior is less vintage but has been done-out to a high standard of cosiness. L-shaped and open plan, with a clear divide where the separate rooms would once have been. Warm and cosy on our misty December visit with a fire on the go, with Xmas ‘classics’ being broadcast from the plasma at the left hand end of the room. Reviews below indicate a rear bar but I didn’t spot it. Eight cask and two ciders on the go, I obviously plumped for the BCA MILD (Pig on the Wall) given the location and was rewarded by a great pint (NBSS 4). Substantial cobs available and to my regret (we were 30 mins after breakfast) I didn’t sample one. Next time…

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.
