About the Pub

This is one of the few pubs from where CAMRA was launched nationally in 1972, driven by early campaigner the late Peter Linley. In that same year, Walsall CAMRA was formed with an initial brief to cover the country from here north to John O'Groats.

On the edge of town, this is a real back street gem dating from 1845. The pub takes it's name from the ceramic bricks at the front. The pub has a front bar with a warm convivial atmosphere. The snug style lounge has a more intimate feel. Both rooms feature real fires. There is an upstairs function room and a smoking area in the rear courtyard.

Folk nights are held on 2nd Thursday of each month.
