The Coach & Horses
Independently owned by the Meads family for over 50 years, the Coach comprises of three rooms; the traditional bar has remained untouched, with its tiled floor, open log fire, antique pine tables and old church pews. The lounge, with its comfy sofas and roaring fires provides a comfortable retreat to read the papers or grab a snack in the middle of a busy day. Our large suntrap beer garden and terrace catches the sun all day, with large parasols for those looking to cool off and escape the heat. Friendly dogs are welcome in the bar and garden areas.
The Coach itself is in an historic setting, situated on the Roman Road Icknield Street, being the first stop from Birmingham to London on the ancient stagecoach route. The building that is now the Weatheroak Hill Brewery was originally the stabling for horses while their passengers enjoyed the hospitality of the Inn.
If it's an afternoon in our popular beer garden or one of our 10 real ales and a cheese cob that takes your fancy, you're sure to find something you like at the Coach & Horses.
Weatheroak Hill Brewery
Established in 2008, Weatheroak Hill Brewery has been supplying the Coach & Horses with quality beers brewed on site for over a decade, travelling a mere 50 meters from grain to glass. Nobody could have predicted the success of the first brews of Icknield Pale Ale and WHB, both winning awards at local beer festivals, and since then we've designed our core range of beers to cater for a wide range of discerning beer drinkers - classic styles like Icknield Pale Ale exist alongside the hop forward Impossible Pale Ale and Cofton Common, our Strong Vienna Ale, with occasional seasonals throughout the year. You'll always find our beer well kept in our well maintained cellar.
