Stopped here for a few drinks on a Saturday evening. The rear garden is sunny and there's plenty of seating. The flowers and plants are well cared for and made the place look cheerful. Plenty of choice for beers being a Wetherspoons.

The pub is the former Golden Cross Hotel, which was rebuilt in 1932 on the site of one of Bromsgrove's oldest coaching inns of the same name. We come recommended by the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and have a large selection of ever changing ales from both the local area and further afield. We are open from 8am every day for breakfast, serving food all the way through until 11pm.
