Beer festival

Just four miles from Lichfield, this light and airy pub with country pine furnishings once served bargees on the now-disused ‘Curly Wyrley’ Canal to the rear. Real ale lovers can enjoy what amounts to a rolling beer festival all year thanks to an ever-changing choice from local microbreweries. Locally sourced dishes are prepared in an open kitchen and chalked up daily. Typical choices include black and white pudding fritters with Puy lentils; slow-cooked blade of beef and bourguignon sauce; smoked haddock kedgeree; and cappuccino Pavlova with whipped Irish cream. There is a large, attractive beer garden to enjoy on sunny days.
