The Barley Mow, Tividale

The Barley Mow has long since been demolished and replaced by housing.

The Golden Cross Hotel, Bromsgrove

Our last pub of the weekend in Worcestershire was this Wetherspoon's branch in Bromsgrove. It was as busy as you would expect all 'spoon's to be. There was a good selection of ales - Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best, Redemption Hotspur, Banks's Yazoo Hop Perfect IPA, Wood's Shropshire Lass, The Hop Shed Sultan Worcestershire Gold, Purity Gold, Brentwood Blonde, Prescott Summer Season's Best, Beowulf Mercian Shine & Brewster's Aromantica. The cider was Weston's Old Rosie, whilst the chain's gin festival had commenced and seemed to be quite popular amongst the clientele. The interior is the usual open-plan drinking hall with a number of booths and gents' toilets upstairs. When there is a decent micropub a short distance away, this will always come a second best. But, second best in the town centre it is.

The Red Lion, Bromsgrove

Marston's pub in the main pedestrianized shopping area of the High Street in Bromsgrove. It was fairly quiet, as all of the shops had shut on our early Sunday evening visit, apart from a bookmakers. The regular beers are Banks's Mild & Bitter. Guests were Marston's 61 Deep & Old Empire, Ringwood Boon Doggle & Brakspear Oxford Gold. No real cider is available. There is a small outdoor courtyard at the rear.
