About the Pub

Welcoming one room beer-focused pub converted from a vacant shop, the West Midlands first micropub was opened in 2013 by Morton brewery. A simple formula is followed with no distractions, just good ale and conversation. Four handpulls serve at least one Morton beer and ever-changing guest beers usually from local microbreweries. Also available on handpull and from the cellar are four ciders or perries. Locally-sourced pies, cheese, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs are served along with ten fruit wines.

Note that the pub is normally open 5 10 on the last Wednesday of each month and 12 to 5 on bank holiday Mondays, often with a themed event. Visitors advised to check first. Also check website/Facebook for staff holiday closures.
