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

Marston's town-centre boozer concentrating on real ale and TV sport, with a clientele almost 100% blokes as far as I could see (and it was crowded) late on a Saturday afternoon. Anyway, the 'L'-shaped bar area is a bit cramped along the frontage but there is more seating towards the back. The place has been refurbished recently, but the decor is still mostly Wolves-related. Music quite loud since the evening hadn't even started. Six different beers available from a total of ten handpumps, and my pint of Banks's Amber Bitter came in at a very reasonable £2.44.

Located in a primarily retail based part of the city, just opposite the police station, this is a pretty good, down to earth boozer that is much bigger than initial impressions suggest. The front of the pub comprises a very narrow, snug-like space between the servery and front windows. A few locals were propping the bar up here and engaged in idle chat with the barmaids, with very limited padded bench seating, dated patterned wallpaper and Wolverhampton Wanderers flags and shirts on the ceiling rounding out the décor and furnishings. The room extends towards the rear, into a much comfier looking lounge where some nice fixed seating with plenty of cushions provided an appealing looking spot to relax, which I would have done had I not ended up chatting to one of the very amiable locals at the bar. A brief exploration behind the servery revealed a large games room to the far left with a pool table, basic banquette and standard chair seating and a few bits that suggested that food may normally be available in this room. In between this room and the lounge there is a covered courtyard which again looked appealing (or at least it would have if it weren't for the fact that it was blisteringly cold outside), with white walls making it a bright space to settle down on one of the chairs or benches provided. A bit of colour is provided by a large trellis and climbing plants. This is another pub that clearly states that only home fans can visit on match days, but I was able to gain entrance by covering up my colours and was soon engaged in a healthy post-match analysis with the locals.
This is a former Banks's house, now offering beers from the wider Marstons stable, although both Banks's Bitter and Sunbeam were available on this visit alongside Wychwood Dog's Bollocks and Ringwood XX Porter. I had a bit of trouble getting noticed by the bar staff, eventually enlisting the help of one of the regulars, but wound up with an excellent pint of Porter, so all was soon forgiven.
I was in two minds as to whether to include this place on my crawl, but I'm pleased that I did. It may be a bit rough around the edges compared to some of the city's more revered ale houses, but I found it the most welcoming pub of the day and enjoyed a quality pint to boot.

Soup Dragon left this review about The Wheatsheaf Hotel

UPDATE: Time for a little re-review as a part of my Wolverhampton grand-tour. This place is a pub, eatery and hotel - rooms for £22 per night, and i had the fortune of meeting one guest. The building is in a Georgian style, predominantly in cream, with some rustication, pilasters and nice sash windows. The interior has three rooms and a covered courtyard. The main bar is at the front and is in white and wood, with a red floor. Behind, there is a lounge that is now the 'cafe' and another, L-shaped that is for the pub. This room is in white with a very worn carpet and seating. The covered courtyard has a pool table. There is a TV, showing general programmes and there was no music. The service was functional and the clientele, a mix of people shall we say. Beer; usual tap stuff with Banks's MILD (very good) and Bitter on handpull. This place really needs work, but it remains a place to pop into for a good MILD..... still wouldn't take Mrs Soup though.

***********************************************************************************
(Sep 2009) Traditional corner pub in the city centre. It has a small front snug with worn green leather seating round the outside. Three rooms at the back the left one and the right one are both lounges and the middle one is a covered courtyard leading to the toilets.

It can look a little scary in the bar, so we usually go in the lounge. The landlady is always friendly and down to earth

It is a nice stop for a consistantly great pint of Banks's MILD on handpull before we get the metro somewhere - last night being Bilston. It also has the Bitter and usual tosh, but this place never disappoints, its always worth a visit when with mates, perhaps not the kind of place i would take the wife though.
