Large pub on the main road through Penn. Friendly service and quite busy when I called in. Banks's Sunbeam and Jennings Cocker Hoop. I went for the Jennings which was fine. Worth popping in.

A large suburban pub on the Wolverhampton to Stourbridge road. The lounge has been opened out to a very long room with many secluded alcoves. It is served by a long wooden posted bar with stained glass facings. This gives a comfortable secluded atmosphere. Beer from Marston's range. The Ringwood bitter was very acceptable.

This is a decent Banks’s (Marston’s) pub built in the 1950’s, it has an unusual exterior with a bit of a French/Dutch cottage look to it due to the mansard roof with its steep pitched sides that cover the first floor, there are three dormer type windows either side of a central section that has two storey canted bay windows. The interior had three rooms until they were all knocked into one in 1982 to form a large crescent shape, although this layout still retains three distinct areas. There is a central public bar area with lounge type areas either side, the central bar has a long dark wood counter across the back wall with stained glass pot shelf above and red quarry tiled floor in front but an old busy patterned carpet everywhere else, there is a large dark wood panel column in the middle of the room and a nice cast fire place with tile surround and elaborate gold framed mirror above in the middle of the front wall, fixed red fabric bench seating, large painting on right wall and old photos dotted around. The left side lounge area has a second lovely cast fire place in the back wall with flowery tiles and a nicely framed and etched mirror above, fixed burgundy leather bench seats some of which are arranged in a small alcove in the back wall between the bar counter and the fire place. The right side lounge has a glass fronted food servery across the back wall joined to the end of the counter of the public bar, a large flat screen TV in the back right corner and green fabric seating. There is a couple of interesting stained glass partitions showing roe deer between the three areas. There is a large car park down the left and behind the pub.

Regular ales are Banks’s Bitter and Mild with two changing guest beers which were Jennings Cocker Hoop and Banks’s Sunbeam on this visit. I had a Mild and a Sunbeam which I thought were both well kept. The clientele were predominantly more mature and I noted that “everyone” was drinking real ale even a couple of old dears (pardon the pun) sat in a corner enjoying halves.

A good traditional pub which retains a bit of character, I have visited several times over the last few years and the beer quality has always been good in my opinion, this may simply be due to excellent cellarmanship but a quick turnover with so many regulars drinking the ale will help. I like this place, there are no frills and it’s not going to win any awards, it just does the simple things very well by providing good beer in a nice comfortable environment, I shall continue my occasional visits.
