    Christmas Social 2017

    We have decided this year on a change of location, to the Crosswells Inn, in Langley, near the pumphouse.  This offers a simpler festive menu and a very accessible location with ample parking in the surroundings and good public transport links.  Also real ale for those who prefer not live without it!

    Bus Route 120/120A from Birmingham to Dudley passes close to the Inn – last services to Birmingham are around 22:30 and 23:00. 
    Departures to Blackheath at 22:30 or Dudley at 23:00.

    Langley Green Station is a short walk away – trains to Birmingham at 22:14, 22:42 and 23:16.

    Tomato and Tarragon Soup with fresh bread
