Brownhills High Street has been crying out for some new blood and ideas, and I think this micropub is an excellent idea we can all get behind – and there aren’t too many decent real ale venues in the locality, so another is always welcome.

I wish Colin and Teresa all the best in their new venture, and look forward to sampling a pint or two in a spanking new venue!

I wish Colin and Teresa the very best of luck with this interesting venture! Image by David Hodgkinson.

    Will it be able to sell beer at those prices in Brownhills? For example, Butty Bach at £3.50 is considerably more expensive than the £2.70 I pay at an independent pub in Bloxwich, let alone Wetherspoon’s prices.

  2. Ade Reid says:

    I somehow think that the people that will frequent the Jiggers Whistle will not be your average Wetherspoons punters.Good ales and ciders cost money.Those prices are not expensive by any means.I wish them good luck for the future..

    • well said – thanks Ade

      I’m not sure, Ade. What sort of punter will the pub be able to attract in Brownhills, and how will they be different from those in Wetherspoon’s? Obviously, the latter has the advantage of economies of scale, and can get a good price from brewers for massive orders, but my price comparison was with an independent boozer in Bloxwich which sells the same ale at 80 pence less. I would think that there isn’t a huge demographic difference between the two areas.

    I really don’t see how a price difference of less than a fiver for an average nights drinking is really significant. If price was the only factor I’d be sat at home with bottles or cans, or I’d be off to ‘spoons. I’ll be giving The Jigger’s Whistle a go soon, and the price of the beer (within reason) is pretty low on my priority list. Pleasant atmosphere and a decent pint much higher up.

    Dropped in tonight- great beer at £3 a pint- so around average for the area. Not a bad place at all.
