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 a TV screen on wall near bar.

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

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.
