Will Larter left this review about Shrubbery Cottage (The Shrub)

This is a very good locals pub, the type of pub that in a lot of towns would be keg only, but in Stourbridge they've stuck with the real ales. This one is a Holdens pub, with Mild, Bitter and Golden Glow available. The blackboard behind the bar seems to suggest that Special and Old are also available from time to time. All beers are priced sensibly, and my bitter was in excellent condition.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Shrubbery Cottage

I was looking forward to visiting this Holden's pub but unfortunately found it to be something of a disappointment... Nothing really wrong with the refurbished 'U'-shaped with fairly light furniture and decor, but it somehow seemed to have an unwelcoming atmosphere. Rather poor choice of just Black Country Bitter, Golden Glow (£3.10) and Black Country Special from three of eight handpumps, although to be fair the quality was excellent.

This is a small single room pub split into various different areas surrounding the bar. I imagine it would have once had a public and saloon bar. It also has a reasonable sized car park and a garden.
It's at the end of a fairly small terrace but most of the housing around (especially just to the West) consists of large detached piles which
probably explains why the Black Country bitter at £2.80 was more expensive than some of their other houses. Also being served were the Special and Golden Glow together with Thatcher's Heritage Cider.
It's not one of Holden's best but is a good solid local boozer and three out of the four possible Holden's beers on offer isn't bad.
