Right in the town centre, I was a bit concerned this might be a bit ‘spoons-esque, but it turned out to be another Black Country Taverns house, and not bad at all. Big, open plan, and quite like the Black Country Arms in character. Decent beer, the TVs were on with Olympic coverage, but not too loud.
Not quite as wonderful as The Vine, but a nice pub. It’s suffered a little from the extensions and opening out inside, but there’s a surprisingly good view from the beer garden, cobs were seen, and the beer was excellent. This place is a B&B as well, so if you were needing a place to stay in Dudley you could probably do worse.
