The Cottage Spring


Old backstreet pub we’d been meaning to visit for years. Traditional inside, except maybe for the telephone box built into the rear wall! Very clearly a pub with regulars, including a cute 3-legged pubdog.

Great beer, friendly staff, but perhaps less friendly neighbours: the far end of the beer garden was out of bounds, due to an enforcement order from Sandwell Council. The surrounding houses are very close, but the pub must pre-exist them by a century, and it didn’t seem like the kind of place to get rowdy.
