We actually visited twice this day: once before our curry, and then, in the company of Andy, so we got to add it to #100pubs.
First visit wasn’t encouraging; the football was on the TV at stupid volume, and we gave up waiting to get served, bought beer from the Co-op, and headed for our curry early. Returning later, a party was in progress in the back, and the whole pub was rammed, but the atmosphere and the beer was good (and there were enough staff). I’ve never seen it so busy.

Nothing new to report, still lacking atmosphere, but it’s OK for a family feedbag pub. Manages to serve a respectable pint of Pedigree, so can’t be all bad.

Another pub that’s seen varying guises: having been a bit of a food pub briefly, it’s now back to it’s original guise of a average, traditional pub just off the common.
Our visit was marred by the beer (my Pedigree was best suited to be used on chips, Stymistress’s budweiser had some of it spilled while being poured into the (plastic) glass, and the barmaid left some of it in the bottle until I asked), and the children whose parents allowed them to run around in circles. Now I know why I always head to The Railway.

A pub famed in Pelsall for being a bit, erm, rough, though it’s by no means the roughest. It had bad publicity for a drugs raid a while ago.
It’s not that bad though: a bit dark and dingy, maybe and probably better before being opened out inside. Beer choice very limited though, but the beer garden was quite pleasant on a sunny day.
