Real Ale Ray left this review about The Midland

Quite liked this Black Country Ales pub, the manager was friendly and chatty along with one of the regulars sitting at the bar alongside me. The interior consisted of a decent sized lounge area, with a large and impressive bar area down the right hand side. The cellar consisted of a cold room at the rear of the lounge with a large window displaying all their cask ales. 15 handpumps on the bar, with 12 in use serving 10 ales and 3 ciders. I went for the Zest Brewery Mosaic Blonde, which was excellent.

As noted below, this is a conversion of a small high street bank. Inside it's a single carpeted square room with a high ceiling. The furnishings consist mainly of low tables and chairs in corners created by red leather seats. It's worth noting that this is a 10am opener so there were already a few in on my late Saturday morning visit. A major plus here is the lack of TV screens but there was a radio playing at a reasonable level.
The bar has an impressive line of fifteen hand pumps which had the three usual BCA beers, a couple of ciders and a wide range of guests. I went for Derby ABC IPA (£4.00) which sounds expensive but is 6.4% abv. This seemed rather warm but may have been made worse by the fact that the glass appeared to be warm. Apart from that it was fine. I would have given it an extra point if it hadn't been for the warm beer.

Impressive bank conversion with an equally impressive choice of ales. I went for one from the Fixed Wheel brewery and it was excellent. Beers listed on the chalk board … you know the drill!
Well worth a visit.
