Pup & Duckling1 Hatchford Brook Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The Pup and Duckling was Solihull's first micropub, serving six real aleas and six real ciders. Set up in a long-closed shop on the corner of Old Lode Lane and Hatchford Brook Road, the main room looks more like a coffee shop, apart from the bar, while the smaller back room could be a lounge in a house. A garden area has been added, and further developments are planned. Bar snacks available, and customers are welcome to bring their own food - Chinese and Indian takeaways and a fish and chip shop are all within 100 yards, Local breweries are often featured - Fixed Wheel, Slaughterhouse, Byatts and Sadler's among them. Regular updates of what is on offer are posted on Facebook, although some ales last only a single day!
