GBG 2019 Entry. Walked past many times, on the way to comedy nights at the Mitre (which won't be troubling the GBG) and always assumed it was a Wetherspoons.

Converted Bank, Mezzanine floor - you can see where I am coming from.

On a Tuesday night, where out of the other 10 or so punters, the only non lager drink was a chardonnay - I was amazed to see nine hand pulls and some real gems on board.

But who is buying it and how fresh it is?

I went for a Ma Pardoe's Bumblehole - having only ever seen their beers in the Swan at Netherton - it didn't disappoint.

Some serious black magic going on, if the other 8 were this good.

Recommended, should you find yourself in Stourbridge.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Old Bank

The interior of this old bank was better than I had imagined with neo classic columns, coffeted ceilings and a splendid looking oak bar and rear servery positioned along the back wall. The large oval shaped windows also provided plenty of natural light. The colour scheme consisted of a lemon painted ceiling with crisp white surrounding plasterwork. Burgundy coloured curtains with matching upholstered furniture and a black and white tiled floor. There was also a good sized safe displayed over the corner entrance, obviously from the days when this bank was in operation. The pool table in the centre of the main lounge looked out of place.
Six ales on handpump, Green Duck Hush, Wye Valley Hopfather, HPA, Butty Bach, one Ma Pardoes and an Enville. I went for the Green Duck, which was in top class condition.

The Old Bank is a must do for me on a tour of Stourbridge. I can't add to the description below and I agree the beer choice is excellent. Batham's best bitter, Olde Swan Bumble hole, Enville ale and Burton Bridge Stairway to Heaven amongst the choice of 9 on my visit. I went for the local Green Duck Glorious - and it was!
