Black Country Ales

About the Pub

Attractive half-timbered, two-storey, 19th century terrace pub near the town centre. After purchase and refurbishment by Black Country Ales, this radically revitalised pub re-opened in 2015 and offers an impressive selection of cask ales and ciders.

Internally, a large, comfortable, square-shaped single room surrounds a central bar and features a wood-framed ceiling and much wood-panelling on the walls, plus three real fires and numerous framed old photographs of Burton. Available beers are listed on two boards at opposite sides of room.

No car park, but parking available on street and in public car parks nearby.

Note that the pub might close early on Sunday and Monday evenings if there are no customers.

Historic Interest

The pub dates back to early 19th-century and was part of the Marquis of Anglesey’s estate until sold to a private owner in 1867. Leased to Worthington’s in 1873, who bought the pub in 1875. Worthington’s merged with Bass, Ratcliff & Gretton in 1927. Although it traded as an Irish theme pub called O'Neill’s for a few years in the late 1990s, it remained a Bass pub until circa 2000 when it reverted to its old name following purchase by a private owner. Bought by Enterprise Inns circa 2005, then by Black Country Ales in 2015.
