The Cat Inn, Enville

Frequent winner of the Dudley and South Staffs Camra pub of the year. Deservedly so.

Lovely are for walking - with the sheepwalks and Enville Hall nearby.

The pub building is part C16th and can trace its pubby origins to 1718. Its several buildings knocked together and tardis like inside, with multiple rooms leading onto to each other. Demands exploration.

Beer wise, there are 7 real ales marked up on the chalkboard - all midlands based but it is linked to the local Enville Ale Brewery - so I didn't get past the £3.20 Enville Ale.

Wonderful.

Waterloo Tap, Waterloo

In the 2018 Good Beer Guide, so I came for the tick knowing its not really my cup of tea.

Hosted in a railway arch it has a beer keller feel to the place. High bences to encourage communal drinking.

God knows how many beers on.... 20? All chalked up above the bar with a one word description. A fiver for a Adnams (one of the few recognised breweries) bicycle kick - described as Pale, more like lager. Decent enough pint.

I've got my tick, so I'll be off somewhere more traditional next time in the area.

The Kings Arms, Waterloo

Well worth seeking out. The road itself is an oasis of calm from the hoardes milling around Waterloo Station. Lovely little terraced houses.

The pub is very traditional on the street corner. Inside, through a door marked Saloon, is all wood paneling and traditional pub furnture. A central bar has four real ales on each side and the only way to find out appears to be to ask - and this caused general panic and confusion with the bar worker. Of the 8 beers, I picked up on a familar XT 3 - which was in fine condition.

Around the back is a lovely conservatory set aside for Thai Dining.

Lovely pub - best in the area?
