    Default Black Country - Stourbridge to Wolverhampton

    This is my next organised crawl, taking in some great real ale pubs including a handful of brewery taps. Heaps of cheese and onion cobs, bags of pork scratchings and lashings of Black Country ales. Hoorah!

    Hi Andy

    Some great pubs there.

    The Duke - Used to visit often in my student days. Not been in since the revamp
    New Inn - Another I haven't visited for a few years. Not since Bathams took over
    Bulls head - Good pub in a good area for pubs
    Fountain - as above
    Beacon - ashamed to say I have never been in !!
    Park - as above
    White Rose - Best in Bilston by a mile
    Western - Another I have yet to visit. Don't get to Wolvo often.

    Shame you couldn't fit the Bull & Bladder in but I suppose the crawl is spread out as it is !!

    Enjoy those scratchings

    Del.


    I am a salmon !!

    Default Black Country - Sedgley to Lye

    Alright Del,

    I did the Bull and Bladder as part of another crawl, earlier in the year, between Sedgley and Lye http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/crawl/vi....php?crawl=477.

    I try to finish the crawl somewhere it's easy to get home from, hence the Windsor Castle near to Lye train station for that crawl. I did it by bus up to that point, which was OK - Sedgley and Gornal are is easy to get to from Dudley or Wolverhampton on the 558 bus. Then we tried to get between Ma Pardoes and the Bull and Bladder and the bus timetable seemed to go out of the window. That's what led me to try again using Richard's minibus (http://www.theme-tours.co.uk/index_f...thamstours.htm).

    I suppose I need to come up with another crawl taking in Halesowen.....

    I remember the Shrubbery Cottage from about 3 years back when it was in the GBG and I got there just before it opened. Believe it is the one that I waited in the garden for it to open and it looked as though it had been a miniature crazy golf. Outlines of a couple of the runs and holes with pub seating over. Can't remember what I had now.
