The Park Inn

Woodsetton:

This is the Holdens brewery tap. We only visited because it looked nice and a small child was driving us mad on the bus, but it’s a fine pub- big, outside space, and pleasant staff, together with great beer.

We didn’t try the food, but prices looked good, and the staff were great. Beer, as expected, was great too. The interior was a bit modern chain-pub, but in fact the pub was a good deal more pleasant.

The Bottle and Glass

Black Country Living Museum, Dudley:

Originally from Brierly Hill Rd, Brockmore, backing on to the canal, this pub was taken and rebuilt at the museum where it continues to not serve lager “it’s not been invented yet” :-). It’s a nice place, a genuine timewarp (though you can get timewarp without paying for admission), and the beer, cider, and cobs were all fine, and the staff pleasant. No real glasses outside, sadly, but otherwise no complaints. Staff pleasant, prices OK for captive audience, decent outside space on a gorgeous hot day.
