Being so close to the Black Country accounts for the fact that so many of our pubs are tied to Marston’s, with Banks’s Amber and Mild and the other beers within their portfolio tend to dominate the area. However, other pub chains have made their way into the area as well offering a wider range of beers – even if they are National brands.

We do now have a couple of extremely good micro pubs in the Little Ale House in Bromsgrove and Alestones in Tardebigge, who stock a good range range of beers from across the country, so they’re well worth searching out.

To the North West of the area the reputable Bathams Mild and Bitter can be found. Wye Valley beers from Herefordshire are quite popular especially Hereford Pale Ale and you’ll often see Pure UBU and Pure Gold from Purity Brewery just over the border in Warwickshire.

We have our own breweries within the area such as


Weatheroak                         Weatheroak Hill                        Ambridge
Studley,                                 Weatheroak                              Inkberrow


Woodcote Manor               Tardebigge Cider
Dodford                                Tardebigge

Their beers, ciders and perries can be found in several free houses around the area.
