Visited my home city, for a week following a family bereavement. Unfortunately did not locate this pub until towards the end of the visit. Three visits made in two days and I thought is was excellent. There are plenty of pubs in the area, most of which concentrate on the food side - nothing wrong with this and some were... More

A brilliant pub which we visit regularly, Hayley and Dave make us feel extremely welcome every time we visit, with 10 hand pulls of quality ale and an excellent range of fruit wine, we will continue to visit. I have never felt so comfortable in such a relaxing atmosphere in a town centre pub. Well done Black Country Ales.

Work in Wolverhampton and have called in here from time to time. Visited for pre Christmas drinks with friends and family. Amazed to be asked to vacate a table we had been sat at as some regulars were expected and we were in their places. Won't be back, nor to any other Black Country Ales pubs including the recently opened... More

Had been drinking happily at a table with four friends for an hour or so when we were approached by a member of staff. She advised us that the table would be required in ten minutes time for a party that had "reserved" the table. She added that it would be fine for us to finish our drinks elsewhere in... More

My australian boyfriend and I have visited here a few times when in Wolverhampton! It's a proper old fashioned English pub with the tempting '10 real ales' posters! They don't offer food but there is the option to bring your own in - which I think is a fab idea! (To be honest when you try the ales food is... More

Lovely little place in the middle of the town. Nice and cosy especially in the winter and a great selection of ales.

Yes....the Danes, I believe, call this kind of lovely, life affirming cosiness " hygge".... and Hayley has mastered it beautifully in her lively city centre oasis. Thank you for taking time to review us. More
