Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Court House

I hadn't been into the Court House for over 6 years. So I paid a return visit between Christmas and new year, wondering why it hasn't appeared in the Good Beer Guide since 2016. After my visit, I'm still wondering, as the selection of ales and ciders here remains the best in Dudley.

As a Black Country Ales pub, it regularly serves BFG, Pig on the Wall & Fireside. 7 guest beers were on for our visit. These were Coach House Christmas Stocking, Titanic Raspberry Pale, Backyard Kris Kringle, Three Tuns Solstice, Beartown Claws, Pennine Christmas Cranberry Stout & AJ's Stuck Up the Chimney.

In addition, there were 5 real ciders - Lilley's Apples & Pears, Gwynt y Ddraig Happy Daze & Sleigh Ride, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask & Weston's Rosie's Pig Raspberry & Cucumber. All beers and ciders are listed on TV screens, along with their style, ABV and price.

The interior is fairly characterless. If you've been to their flagship outlet, the Wellington in Birmingham, you'll know what to expect. Although, aside from the large main room, there is a small snug to the right of the entrance, which I've never managed to set foot in.

The real strength of the Court House is its ale and cider range. Hopefully I won't leave it another 6 years before visiting again.

A corker of a pub. 16 handpumps with 4 used for cider/perry. All pumps were in use today and all were different beers. Beers from Black Country, Beowulf, 4Ts, Mumbles, Hales, Grafton, North Yorkshire, Lymestone, Oakham and Golden Duck breweries today and ciders from Herefordshire,, Tygwyn and Lilleys. The pub is nicely decored and is a largish main room with a snug I didn't actually see. Though the pumps were all clipped there is a blackboard by the entrance telling you what's on. A pleasant, comfortable and extremely well stocked pub. For real ale its by far the best pub in the town. I loved it.

This former Hanson / Banks house is now a free house associated with the Black Country Brewery. The main bar is one large carpeted room. I completely failed to spot the snug bar.
There are sixteen pumps seven of which were unused and two taken by cider. Of the seven beers on two were from the Black Country brewery and the rest were all beers and breweries that were completely new to me. I went for the Mantle Brewery Black Heart (£3.15). I could see that this was from Wales as it had the word Bragdy on the clip which made it appropriate for St David's Day.
I subsequently discovered that it was brewed in Cardigan. This was the most expensive beer of the day but to be fair it wasn't in a Spoons and wasn't a locally brewed one. It was in very good nick. Given the Central location in Dudley this is one that shouldn't really be missed.
