Popped in on a sunny afternoon and sat outside for a swift one, the garden is very nice with wonderful hanging baskets. Beer quality was excellent - a range of Ludlow Brewing co's beer on offer and the barman was knowledgeable about the beers (as they were new to me), asking my ale preference before recommending a beer.
Didn't see too much of the inside (didn't want to waste a bit of sunshine!) but I'll be returning soon.

A great country cottage style pub built around 1830 which is usually decorated with lots of nice colourful hanging baskets and is now owned by Enterprise Inns. The interior is split in to two areas by the pale wood island bar counter, at the front is a fairly traditional public bar area and at the back is a larger restaurant which is located in a modern extension. The public bar has the small bar counter at the back, slightly to the right and opposite the entrance, a large brick fire place in the right hand wall with a cast iron stove, some genuine wood beams and pillars dotted around, wood floor with a couple of rugs, mixture of traditional and more modern pub furniture, a couple of new wood settles in the left hand area, a large flat screen TV on the left wall showing the 1980’s Goonies film (a guilty pleasure of mine), various Wolves FC and West Brom FC memorabilia and photos on the walls. The restaurant has a small bar counter at the front, a marble effect tiled floor and modern chunky wood dining furniture. There are double doors at the back of the dining area which lead out to a paved patio with modern garden furniture and a grass area beyond with picnic tables. The car park is on the left of the pub and is entered from Greyhound Lane.

Regular ales are currently the house bitter Wye Valley Hare of the Dog and Enville Ale with two changing guest beers which were Hobsons Town Crier and Wye Valley Hereford Pale Ale (GBG 2012). I tried the house bitter and the Hobsons and found both to be in good condition. A nice selection of local breweries but I don’t think that I have seen anything other than golden hoppy beers on my visits, which is a bit of a shame, I personally don’t have a preference but I do like to see a varied selection of styles.

A brilliant country pub, the former land lady of the excellent Fountain in Lower Gornal took charge around six months ago, I have visited several times in the last couple of years and regardless of the recent change of management I have always found the beer to be well kept. I have not tried the food but I know that they have a good reputation for fresh local produce and quality which as mentioned in the previous reviews results in higher than average prices. The place is kind of styled as a restaurant with a public bar but the locals still treat it as a pub. I shall also visit again soon and may even eat if I can afford it.

A detached pub and restaurant, with a beer garden and patio area. The place looks like a Victorian cottage-styled building, with central door and four windows, in white/cream painted brick, which has been significantly extended.

The interior has a couple of rooms served by a central island bar. The main part of the place is given over to a restaurant in what looked like mainly chocolate and white, with stripey carpet, comfy chairs, twigs (and lights), arty pictures and a brick fireplace. I didn't go in here as we were not eating, so cant comment on the food. The small slightly L-shaped lounge/bar was also in chocolate and white, with a white ceiling and a wood floor. There is a brick fire place and Moroccan styled window shutters. There was a TV (not on) and Wolves and West Brom memorabilia on the walls. The service was fine and the clientele consisted of a real mix - not just those going for a meal, but some simply having a beer.

Beer; usual taps stuff with Oakham Bishop's Farewell, Exmoor Gold, Enville Ale and a decent enough Wyre Valley Hare of the Dog.

Whilst predominantly a restaurant, it does have a separate bar room. I was more than happy with the beer choice and quality, although it wasn't the cheapest place.
