The craft beers hold their own in the midst of the other pubs in the area, as well as bottles from Belgium (Kwak is a fav). This historic pub has a nice beer garden a nice atmosphere and is well worth the visit.

Visiting on a Tuesday night for the monthly pub quiz; This was our first Lych Gate quiz night and we thought it was great. We were nowhere near winning, but good fun was had by all.

Thank you very much....Hayley's quiz nights are great. We do often have vegan acceptable ales on offer in our pubs, as there is a small but significant number of people who appreciate them, and we will discuss your comments at our next board meeting to examine whether we can improve on this. More

Tucked away little gem of a place with a large selection of real ales and a true pub feel. Also the prices are very good considering the central location.

I bumped into the Lych Gate whilst out in Wolverhampton with a friend. The range of beers was extensive and the whole place oozed atmosphere. It was a Saturday and the lone bar waitress was somewhat overwhelmed with the numbers of punters in the place, but that wasn't her fault. It was raining and cold, so we didn't use the... More

Hadn't been to The Lych Gate for a while, always found it slightly gloomy there in the past. Nowadays it seems a much friendlier place with a good clientele and nice staff. Shall make it a regular destination again from now on. Nice to hear a bit of background music too, not a fan of senseless 'no music' policies.. Excellent... More
