In the newer, lower part of town, this ‘looks like a gastropub’ according to BITE, and that’s a fair description, but if that puts you off, ignore it. There’s a restaurant attached, and hotel rooms too, but the bar feels like a pub. A nice pub, with good beer, friendly staff, and a nice atmosphere. The restaurant is good too, but this is PubBlog.
Is there something about the name?
To be fair, the Pelsall Queens is OK, but this one was rough. Rougher than a scrapyard dog.
Filthy. Disgustingly so, by even my standards. Shit choice of beer, and kids toys strewn about, together with the kid. We drank quickly and left.
Large, imposing hotel/pub right by the castle.
First impressions were OK, rather than brilliant, and they were correct. The staff were a little unfriendly, the food was OK, but the beer was good. Prices reasonable considering, but there’s better nearby.
