Lovely traditional pub right in the centre. No food, but several well-kept real ales, a very friendly barman, atmosphere, and a bit of outside space on a sunny day. Perhaps on the grotty side for some, but I love it.
Hard to belive this hasn’t made it before given the number of lunchtimes I spent here. The Hogshead in Wolves is a very different animal to it’s short-lived Walsall namesake: The Walsall one seemed to specialise in cattle-market, loud music, and crappy lagerfizz. The lager is here as well, but the pub is a little upmarket. It’s still a chain pub, but there’s a good choice of well-kept real ale, more outside space, and decent staff. the food’s Ok too. That’s why this one is still open, and the Walsall one isn’t.
