The Country Girl (1), Hanbury Road, Sharpway Gate near Bromsgrove
This unusually named public house has had a number of changes of management and/or ownership in recent years. It has now been painted white outside, in place of the previous cream. It was open when photographed, despite the scaffolding, which appeared to be related to work on the roof. There is a website but it seems to relate to a previous management, as the main menu on there has not been updated since the Spring/Summer of 2010 (as at January 2012). It seems to have been a food focussed pub, with the ability to host functions, and presumably this is still the case.

The pub is listed in a trade directory of 1879 under its present name, but could be older than that.
