Beacon Hotel & Sarah Hughes Brewery

129 Bilston Street, SEDGLEY, Dudley, DY3 1JE

Home of the Sarah Hughes Brewery, the Beacon Hotel is a restored Victorian tap house that has barely changed in 150 years. Proprietor John Hughes reopened the adjoining Sarah Hughes Brewery in 1987, 66 years after his grandmother became the licensee. The rare snob-screened island bar serves a simple taproom, with its old wall benches and a fine blackened range; a super cosy snug replete with a green-tiled marble fireplace, dark woodwork, velvet curtains and huge old tables; and a large smoke-room with an adjoining, plant-festooned conservatory. On a tour of the brewery you can see the original grist case and rare open-topped copper that add to the Victorian charm and give unique character to the brews. Flagship beers are Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby, Sedgley Surprise & Amber, with seasonal bitter and two guest beers from small microbreweries also available. Food in the pub is limited to filled cob rolls but there is a designated children's room and play area, as well as a large garden.
