It used to be part of a chain of 'Little Pubs' around the midlands, all
with their own theme, but tied into to the advertising line 'Please
Drink Harder and Faster', beer called 'Lumphammer'- with a hammer as the
beerpull, desperate dan cow pies, etc etc.

Other pubs included the 'Dry Dock' in Netherton - which is still well
worth a visit - canal barge as the bar.
Also the 'Sauce Factory' in Worcester, and many others.

I think the guy sold them for a fortune and they all seem to be
unconnected anymore, which is a shame, they used to do a trail to
collect an item at each pub and then receive a big freeby if you did
them all.
