Just an observation - but I would say that this place has benefited by the closure of the JDW around the corner.

This place was packed on a Tuesday afternoon with groups of old boys on smooth pour or guinness.

Typical large chain style city pub.

Four handpulls, three turned around and in the heat, I was rather pleased that the only one with a forward facing pump clip - was off. No TT Landlord for me.

Birra Moretti for £4.10.

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

Now the only vaguely traditional pub still open in the centre of West Bromwich, with the 'spoons and Interceptor accounting for the remaining trade. This one has also been opened-out and refurbished in an anonymous semi-modern style, with the two pool tables being the main thing to note. Thankfully, real ale is still available, with Robinson's Trooper and Backyard's seasonal Project Beach Ball (£2.45, and in reasonable shape) available from two of the three handpumps. NB - No food available, unlike many town-centre Stonegate pubs.

A large town centre pub with one big room. Pool and darts can be found at one end and there are several large sports TV screens around, as well as an unsurprising amount of West Bromwich Albion memorabilia. Despite painted signs outside claiming 'local cask ales', the draught offerings at time of visit were Brains Lovely Tackle, Hobgoblin and Bombardier! Condition was ok though and it did feel like a proper pub.
