Pub of the Year rosette

Pub of the Year 2015

The Whippet Inn has been awarded Pub of the Year for Staffordshire and overall Pub of the Year 2015 by the Lichfield, Sutton & Tamworth branch of CAMRA. We are very proud to have achieved this branch award within 12 months of opening the Whippet Inn. We would like to say a great big thank you to all our loyal customers who have played a big part in this achievement and also to the Campaign for Real Ale for their support.

When

We opened the Whippet Inn on 17th April 2014 after spending six months searching for the perfect premises in Lichfield city centre.

Why

It was as a result of our passion / obsession for real ale and a desire to bring a wider selection of micro and small independently brewed ales to the City of Lichfield.

What... is a micropub?

It's usually a single room, former shop premises as with the Whippet Inn. In our case the focus is on real ale, real cider, and wine. We don't sell lager, keg beer, or spirits. True micropubs hark back to the days of the ale house when conversation was king with no influence from gaming machines, TVs nor music.

I visited this pub with my wife and 2 friends a couple of days ago. The door was open and we walked in. The landlord and another man were talking. We stood at the bar for about 2 minutes and he completely ignored us. My friend asked if the pub was open to which the landlord replied no, the clue is the upturned chairs. All he had to say when we entered was sorry we are closed and not ignore us as if we weren't there. I can't think of another occasion in a pub when I have been treated so rudely and we certainly won't be returning. We went to the new bar next door which was friendly and had a good range of beers. A footnote, I couldn't actually see a sign on the window at The Whippet which gave opening hours which would have been useful. ...

Evening. I visit micropubs around the country and keep my own list. Could you possibly tell me your exact opening date? ...
