About the Pub

Opened in 2018, this small outlet occupies a former bank branch and retains the original counter and wings. The impressive rear door to the garden, which offers covered seating, also reflects its previous use.

The small bar area leads to a cosy lounge, with another lounge upstairs reached by an open spiral staircase. The paintings, silks and other memorabilia signal the owner’s brother’s interest in horse racing, hence the name of the pub.

They open at noon on Wolves home matchdays (3pm kick-offs).
