A bit opened out inside but manages to maintain a pubby feel. Twelve pumps in all with ten cask beer and two Ciders making use of them all, unfortunately at this stage of the game (pub eight) I failed to record them apart from my choice of an old favourite, Titanic Chocolate and Vanilla Stout, although this was only in fair condition.
I would be happy to include this on another crawl.

March 2022 Ten years on since last review and this pub has had yet another change after the failure of the last business. Now taken over by Black Country Ales and fitted out very much in their style (Craven Arms/Jewellers Arms are good reference). Described by one Birmingham blogger as 'old man style' there is a traditional boozer carpet, tables and chairs, the showcase is the front windows, the bar to the side has many real ale handpulls and their are cobs available. Nice small pub, but feels a little packed in at the top. Extra mark for the beer.

July 2012:Much changed since its refurb. Still one room, but with dark wood floor, dark green walls and some trendy wallpaper in parts.

Seating is a mish mash of benches, various chairs & square/rectangle dark wood (again) tables. There is a games machine and plasma in the middle and a fire place at the far end.

Its different, though the contemporary moody look is not too disimilar from the Bitters and Twisted pubs in the city.

Not sure about the outside which is a fullover deep purple job and the landlord appears to have a mobile permanently stuck to his ear whilst serving.

Live music every Sunday 4-7. Food menu coming soon.

7 permanent real ales and a guest, the choice has changed for the better and includes Tetley Mild and localish Enville Ale.

Its a nice place, a 7 1/2 for me, but the beer makes it an 8 on here

Now taken over by Black Country Ales. Refurb due in January.

July 2019
Knocked about and molested inside, nonetheless someone has had a go at keeping it viable. A semi L shaped interior which is a hodge-podge of cheap refurbs. The paintbrush had covered up the worst of it in turquoise even if it is starting to peel in places. Six pumps at the bar with four on and an eclectic selection from Enville, Mad Goose and Oakham. My Citra wasn't the best (a bit muted NBSS 2) but the enthusiastic Brummie barman who happily served me at 2 minutes before time made it more palatable. Pointlessly loud music drowned out the witterings of the soaks in attendance. If I was hard-hearted I'd say don't bother but there was enough life for me to be kind with a 6.
