I bumped into the Lych Gate whilst out in Wolverhampton with a friend. The range of beers was extensive and the whole place oozed atmosphere. It was a Saturday and the lone bar waitress was somewhat overwhelmed with the numbers of punters in the place, but that wasn't her fault. It was raining and cold, so we didn't use the... More

Hadn't been to The Lych Gate for a while, always found it slightly gloomy there in the past. Nowadays it seems a much friendlier place with a good clientele and nice staff. Shall make it a regular destination again from now on. Nice to hear a bit of background music too, not a fan of senseless 'no music' policies.. Excellent... More

(Disabled lift available to go up or down). 8 real ales / ciders available. Quiz was last week, not certain how often it is on though. Newspapers to peruse. My 2nd visit here... More

Visited my home city, for a week following a family bereavement. Unfortunately did not locate this pub until towards the end of the visit. Three visits made in two days and I thought is was excellent. There are plenty of pubs in the area, most of which concentrate on the food side - nothing wrong with this and some were... More

A brilliant pub which we visit regularly, Hayley and Dave make us feel extremely welcome every time we visit, with 10 hand pulls of quality ale and an excellent range of fruit wine, we will continue to visit. I have never felt so comfortable in such a relaxing atmosphere in a town centre pub. Well done Black Country Ales.

Work in Wolverhampton and have called in here from time to time. Visited for pre Christmas drinks with friends and family. Amazed to be asked to vacate a table we had been sat at as some regulars were expected and we were in their places. Won't be back, nor to any other Black Country Ales pubs including the recently opened... More

Had been drinking happily at a table with four friends for an hour or so when we were approached by a member of staff. She advised us that the table would be required in ten minutes time for a party that had "reserved" the table. She added that it would be fine for us to finish our drinks elsewhere in... More
