The Rose & Crown (1), 55 Old Birchills, Walsall
The Rose & Crown (1), 55 Old Birchills, Walsall
A friendly pub which is now a Black Country Ales house, which means there are lots of different real ales on offer. The interior is a gem, preserving period decor which is increasingly difficult to find. Whether you call it late (very late) Victorian or early Edwardian, depends on your point of view. According to the date on the front of the building, it dates from 1901 and Queen Victoria died in January of that year. It was originally the Rose & Crown Hotel, although today the word Hotel has been dropped from the name, as it no longer functions as one.
