This desirable inn is located on the main road running through the affluent picturesque South Staffordshire hamlet of Newtown that sits adjacent to the village of Great Wyrley. The village of Great Wyrley has an assortment of local shops and amenities, a church and a sought after highly commended High School. Nearby is the desirable walkers and cyclist's paradise of Cannock Chase (8 miles) the UK's smallest area of outstanding natural beauty. Other points of interest include the thriving town of Walsall (4 miles) and the busy city of Wolverhampton is only 8 miles away. The local motorway system is excellent and the business sits far enough away from but in between the M6 and M6 toll roads. The M54 and A5 are both also close by providing easy access to most parts of the UK.

This traditional 19th century inn is of brick construction with front rendering and sits under a pitched, tiled apex roof. Entrances to the front and rear (with disabled facilities) provide access to all the trading areas. These consist of:

Top and Bottom Lounges (circa 40+ plus standing) are bursting with character and rustic charm and are linked by a few small steps to accommodate the different floor levels. Loose tables, chairs and stools are complimented by upholstered perimeter bench seating all sitting on areas of carpeted and oak flooring. Exposed wooden beams to the ceilings and walls add to the ambience and in the bottom lounge is a wooden bar server with a further 3 cask ales on offer. Local artist paintings are positioned around the lounge walls and really are a pleasure to view.
Restaurant (54 covers) is an L-shaped extended room to the rear of the property with fabulous rolling countryside views across Cannock Chase. Loose tables and chairs sit on areas of carpet and laminate flooring beneath exposed wooden ceiling and wall beams and there is a coffee prep area to one side.

The current owners purchased the business in 2004 and have since established a food led business offering quality, locally sourced, home cooked food and drinks to a loyal, repeat and desirable clientele. The business is currently operated by the owners themselves assisted by 3 full and circa 22- part time members of staff. Sitting proudly at the centre of the local community the business has been recognised with a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence and has been a CAMRA POTY award winner on no less than 4 occasions.
