About the Pub

Closed 23/8/2020 for conversion to flats. History: With its conversion to the Greenfinch in late 2012, it was then in the Marston’s “Two for One” stable, in late 2016 it was re-branded once more, this time becoming a "Generous George" house. This was a warm and comfortable dining pub that featured an ‘L’ shaped bar, off which radiated a variety of drinking and eating areas. The whole was decorated using pleasing, neutral tones which were punctuated by the odd splash of colour to highlight chimney breasts and other significant features. The front part had plenty of space and extended to the right into a conservatory. Another conservatory was set to the left giving a good view of the outside drinking area, whilst to the rear was a lower level room that often played host to large groups of people dining. This grand house was set in extensive grounds and did well from the food. Overall, quite a plush affair with many folk taking advantage of the gardens when the weather was good. The guest beers were from the Marston’s range, so was often Burton Bitter and Jennings Cumberland. Past history: A conversion of a Victorian mansion that occurred some years ago. Allegedly built as consulting rooms or a small hospital by a doctor, for his two daughters who failed to qualify; it was sold to Wolverhampton brewer Banks's and eventually became a large, multi-roomed public house called the Four in Hand.
