We managed to visit a couple of pubs, both sold recommendable beer. They were:-
Combermere Arms on Tettenhall Road, handily between the centre and our hotel, then,
Posada, right in the centre, a good pint of Landlord for me.
We went to watch Paul Weller play at the Civic, he was absolutely superb and pulled out an excellent non-stop performance packed with songs from his days in The Jam, The Style Council and his solo days.
The Civic Hall itself is a small compact venue with standing in front of the stage and a small balcony with seating. Either side of the auditorium are bars and on the one side is a cloakroom where you can leave your coat for £1.00.
Dress Code: Anything you want.
Directions: It is signposted in the City Centre.
