    Default Hoppy's mini Cannock pub crawl.

    Hello everyone!

    I have decided to visit small Staffordshire town Cannock (roughly 5 miles north of Walsall) for mini pub crawl. Pubs I will visit are..

    The Linford Arms (JDW) http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/56969/... will be my 99th JDW.
    The Royal Oak http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/34346/
    The Roebuck Inn http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/34345/
    Pied Piper http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/34342/
    Stones http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/34348/

    IF I finish pub crawl earlier than I anticipated then I'll go to Walsall to tick off 100th JDW, The Imperial http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/55162/ for dinner and pint.

    Then I'll catch bus to Sutton Coldfield to watch Sutton Coldfield Town Vs Stourport. Before the game, I'll be visting The Duke Inn http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/68486/ for two good reasons.

    1) I haven't been there for good 5 to 6 years
    2) Nearest pub to Sutton Coldfield's football ground.

    Despite living in Staffordshire, I never shopped or even drink in Cannock and althrough I have been driving through Cannock millions of times but never stopped there. Also Cannock is the largest settlement in Staffordshire I never visited. Should be interesting experience tomorrow..

    Hope you enjoy the Duke Inn Hoppy, I was there just over a year ago and it was a real good down to earth pub. Another good pub in Sutton Coldfield that I remember is The Station which, funnily enough, is by the station.

    Have a good day

    Thanks Millay, I shall enjoy Dukes Inn tomorrow night as long I am not very drunk!

    The Station by.. well, station naturally, is rather poor and soulless. I guess I only ever visited there in lunchtime and I bet it will be packed in night-time.

    I know what you mean, I went there on my own around lunchtime and it was very quiet. But when returning in the evening with a load of mates it was full and had a great atmosphere. It was a bit concerning when half a dozen police turned up with sniffer dogs but after a quick tour of the property the dogs seemed more interested in begging for crisps of the punters than looking for anything dodgy.

    Hi,

    Just a thought, if you are doing Cannock and on the train as it looks like you maybe - possibly swap Stones for the Mill Farm , which is opposite the railway station. Ok, its a toby inn, but it is yet to be reviewed. And Stones isn't exactly special.

    I have a soft spot for the Linford, a lovely pub, try sitting upstairs by the window if its quiet, or the study.

    Again if on the train, a stop off in Bloxwich may also be an idea?

    And Cannock town centre isn't half bad as a place. Ok nothing spectacular, but it is nice.

    Enjoy

    Danny

    Hi Danny,

    Are you this Danny and have opened a second account (Let me know if you need me to merge the accounts)?

    If so I haven't actually emailed you as far as I can tell despite all your contributions to the site, thanks a lot for all of those.

    Regardless myself and Dave are the admins of the site so if you have any queries, problems or suggestions for the site or forums please let us know.

    Hope you enjoy your stay,

    Hi Danny!

    Thanks for pointing out Mill Farm, I'll swap it for Stones (although it is bit out of way, I'll do it for you)

    I rarely use train around West Midlands and all done on buses. Bloxwich doesnt have any JDW so I chose Walsall for 2 simple reasons.. 1) They have JDW which I need to tick off 2) Bus direct to Sutton Coldfield.

    Many thanks again.

    Hoppy

    P.S I wonder where do you live
