The Big Three

We understand that pubs are a part of our country’s heritage, and a vital centre for our communities. Our goal is to uphold the values of the traditional real ale pub: A comfortable friendly atmosphere, log fires, and most importantly of all, a wide range of top quality ales. Our pubs exist to spread our love of real ale across the West Midlands, so that everyone can enjoy a quality pint. We sell our permanent range of beers brewed on our site in Lower Gornal alongside an array of ales, from West Midlands breweries as well as from further afield.

We Are a Dog Friendly Pub!

All we ask is please keep them on their lead and don't sit on the furniture while they are here.

A fresh bowl of water to quench their thirst is also available, and a sneaky dog buiscut from the staff!

Please note that dogs are only permitted in the pub until 22:00 hours so that the lovely Haribo (who lives here) pictured below can also have some social time 🐾
