Converted from offices but looks traditional inside and out. Only thing I would change is the too bright and harsh lighting. Leccy meter must be spinning like a top.

Of course, the beer is excellent. Full house on a Tuesday evening and everyone (apart from a child) was drinking the Bathams Bitter.

Added a walk from the pub to my list at my blog - http://bit.ly/2pNLPRs - so you've got a chance to work up a thirst before going in :-)

Aqualung . left this review about The King Arthur

Batham's newest pub is their only one that hadn't originally been a pub. It opened last September on the same day as the new Holden's one in Bridgnorth. Although it was offices prior to the brewery taking it over, the building and the adjacent ones look as though they were built as houses. This house would be described as large detached but inside consists of a single roughly square room which isn't very large for a pub. The drinking area wraps around a fairly large serving area, presumably for more busy times than my early Thursday afternoon visit. There is a modern wood floor adorned with some large Batham mats depicting the familiar bull that is their brewery emblem. The decor is largely modern including ceiling lights but there are some light fittings that seem to have been made from battered old copper. One big plus is that there are no TVs and no music.
As noted below, the two sets of three hand pumps had the Mild and Best Bitter. I had a pint of the mild (£2.45) which was in superb condition followed by a few of the Best (£2.75) which was just as good.
This is a new departure for Batham's and they have done a great job. Hagley is a place with few pubs so I bet the local population are pleased to see it. It doesn't match up to their older multi-room pubs but I'll come back here next December during the "Quest for the XXX".

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about King Arthur

The concept of a new Bathams pub seems a bit of a non sequitur, but they have done a fine job of converting the former offices into a lighter than expected yet semi-traditional pub. The resulting 'U'-shaped layout is surprisingly modern, but the plethora of customers didn't seem to mind one bit (nor did I, come to that). Of course, only the Bitter and Mild (£2.45) were available from the duplicated banks of three handpumps, but when the beer is sublime as this, who's complaining?
