For me I think it is important that wherever I live, I have a nice pub nearby or restaurant or basically somewhere where I can go and have a nice drink or some nice food and somewhere you can socialise with people that is nice. When I lived at home, one of these places was the old house at home which was a pub in Pelsall and it was lovely and I still go there sometimes now.
The address is as follows:
Old House At Home
Ok so location first. The old house at home is located in a small village called Pelsall. It is a delightful little village and this pub is one of all of the local's favourites and is located right in the centre of the village. You can get to it by car and there is a car park there which I always manage to find a space and it is free. You can also get there from most local buses that go through Pelsall and the bus stop is literally a 30 second walk away from there. In Pelsall it is by the fingerpost.
The old house at home from the outside reminds me of a cottage. It is a nice looking building which has beams and a sweet roof and a nice entrance with a nice heated outside area with a few wooden tables. When you go past you cant help but think that it looks very cosy there and to me I think it looks completely inviting as the lights are always on and there is a massive window so you can see people sitting there enjoying themselves from the outside.
As you park and walk in to the pub you will notice that the doors are lovely. Then in front of you there is the bar and the bar is massive. They are very well stocked and have always made any drink I wanted which is always good. They will also give you advice on what to drink and give you prices of you ask and the staff seem to always be in quite a good mood which is nice.
Drinks are about the same price as any bar so no surprises there.
To the left of the bar you will see a seating area which is usually used for those people purely coming in for a drink. There are loads of tables and seats and the pub goes around further than you expect it to. You can of course eat in this area but you will probably prefer to go to the right of you which is where there are nice tables and most people go and eat here.
Now this is where that big window is so it is nice eating there. The toilets are on this side to and they are very nice and clean at all times.
Ok so the food is very nice. There is a good menu which gives you a good choice of your normal pub foods really such as scampi and lasagne and curry. The food is reasonable price at main meals being around £5 - 8. Starters include soup and others at around £3. Then puddings include gorgeous ice-cream and chocolate cake which are about £3.50 so prices are not that bad at all.
The food is yummy and on different nights they do have offers such as on a Wednesday I think it is they do curry night so you can get a meal and a drink for a fiver and they do things like that. In the pub you will notice that there is always a bustling and fun atmosphere and the decoration reflects this. It is all quite traditional with wooden everything which fits the cottage theme.
Once a week on a Thursday they do a quiz night and you have to get there early to even get a table as it gets very busy indeed. The quiz is good fun and I have done it quite a few times.
The pub is always bustling and when you go there you will see why people do like it. It is a fun pub and one that you go and feel comfortable in. they have people there who work as security in a way and they will get rid of any troublemakers which is what I like as troublemakers ruin everything.
All in all I think that his pub is worth going to and I always return there. It is a nice friendly place and I am glad it was my local for a long time.
Thanks for reading.
