Our Latest Project

Posted on 03/14/13 No Comments

This weekend will see the launch of our latest project. On Saturday, fingers crossed, the doors will open the newly refurbished Fountain Inn, Lower Forster Street, Walsall. The pub had been closed since August 2011 and nearly met an untimely end when the neighbouring Jabez Clift factory burned down. Fortunately the pub survived and was acquired by the Backyard in early November this year. The pub will be run by local, popular character John Horton. Formally a sign writer for Highgate brewery and previous manager of ‘The Pretty Bricks’, (another popular Walsall pub), we have high hopes for this ever popular local pub.
