The Great Western, Wolverhampton – Holden’s tied pub hidden away round the back of the station, offering the full range of their beers, three guests and Batham’s superb Best Bitter. Classic front bar and a variety of areas rambling back to a conservatory and beer garden. Lively, bustling atmosphere, busy throughout the day.The pub hosts the annual meeting of a non beer-related society that I belong to (this one, if you really want to know), and yesterday it was as good as ever. Batham’s sells at a considerable premium over the Holden’s beers (£2.90 to £2.40 for Holden’s Bitter), but still appears to be the best seller. I did a fuller write-up here. I have now amended the original post accordingly, so it now lists eleven pubs, not ten.
