    Default Wellington and stations towards Wolverhampton

    Thoroughly enjoyed our Midlands pub crawl today. A small but select crew, including new recruit Alan H, and expertly organised by Oggwyn Trench (thanks Oggy). Here's a photo taken in the Pheasant in Wellington fairly early in the proceedings. More may follow.

    (L to R front row : Alan H, Trainman, Sheffield Hatter, Mrs Ale; back row: Real Ale Ray, Bucking Fastard, Quinno, Oggwyn Trench, Dave M)

    Yes, another fine PuG day out and great to catch up with those who could make it.
    Sorry I bailed at Codsall, worried about my connection so chose the more frequent option from Wolverhampton. Slight faux pas as I left the Great Western and asked the way back to New Street, oops.
    Back to Brum next Sat on a £4ew ticket, considering other possibilities out of town.

    Only managed two photos, one of them for our resident apple-head, in absentia...

    Hope you all had a good last section of the crawl. I had a fairly rough journey home and am under the weather today - think I must have got a bug. Good news is that my phone isn't completely screwed and is being repaired this afternoon.

    Cheers Oggy for organising it, there were some excellent pubs I may never have been to otherwise!

    See you all next time.

    Bit late with this, but many thanks to Oggy for organising the crawl on Friday. Thoroughly enjoyed it, some fab beers sampled, great pubs, and as always, great company. Brill to have Alan on board too.

    Made it to Ashby de la Zouch and Melbourne on Saturday for some more superb ales

    I've read with interest the reviews of this crawl. With regard to the Codsall Station and the locals, thinking back the bar area could be a bit of a clique but I've always parked myself in the rear conservatory. They usually have Holden's Mild on. Re BF's barking dog in the Platform Ale House, the last time I was there it was overrun with kids following their sports event. I would have preferred the barking dog (no I don't mean the Spoons!!!) any day.
    I've got a visit to the Crown Joules earmarked. Now I'm running out of Spoons I can realistically get to on a day out I will defo revisit Shifnal and Oakengates this winter.
    With Oakengates, which is the best of the three? My favourite on the day I went there was the Station but like Real Ale Ray I gave them a blanket 9.
