Usual JDW fare here and guest beers from Green Jack and an international ale brewed at Wadworth which was fine.

Named after Pat Collins, one time Bloxwegian, fair owner and mayor of Walsall, and owner of the first cinema on the site 1912-1921 called the Electric Palace. This is the second cinema, opened in 1922, called the Grosvenor, and is in classical style. Spoons were going to take the now demolished Bulls Head before this property came on the market (closure of the Youth Club mentioned by Mr A below). The pub has a patio, is on two floors, is in the mixed Spoons decor but with a mural of a Ferris wheel on the wall. In general the same as other places, but it usually serves 3 guest ales (with the usual 3) and they always seem to be pale ales (Kelham featuring a lot). The Exmoor Gold I had last night was a bonus and it was in decent nick, too. Usual Spoons crowd. Worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bloxwich Showman (JD Wetherspoon)

Impressive 'spoons conversion of a former cinema, named in honour of a local pioneer of the 'moving pictures'. The bar is located in the former stalls (up four steps from the front door, with the mezzanine seating area above. Two banks of six handpumps on the counter, but all duplicated so the real ale choice was fairly pedestrian (with the Month Python's Flying Circus 'very silly IPA' from Black Sheep being the most appealing option).
