Named after a 19th century print of a dancing bear in Sedgley Bull Ring, this former farmhouse has been a pub for over 180 years. The house beer, Black Bear, from Kinver Brewery, is always available. There is always a minimum of one beer from the Greene King stable plus a couple of beers from breweries such as Kelham Island, Salopian, Backyard and Loddon. The beer choice may be more limited in the week and be broader on Saturdays and Sundays. There are bus stops close by or you could choose to walk uphill from the Gornal Wood bus station or downhill from the main number 1 bus route.
