Just opened one in Brownhills The Hussy food is excellent they serve fish and chips on old newspapers (well made to look like old) tried to book up for Christmas all ready full up just shows you how good the food is
about 60 staff will be employed, so good for the community, and yes john the food is excellent value for money, you can get a 9oz rump steak and all the trimmings for 6.99.
the hunters is going to be a 291 cover restaurant with kids play areas inside and out, but will also have an excellent bar area for the locals who just want a drink.
I Go past there every sunday and it was only on this sunday i noticed that behind the hoarding there was building going on and it looked like it was not far off being completed for months i thought it was being demolished
because its been there for decades and of the later part of its life it became a chequered history pub

its certainly in the right area and i am glad to hear its not a macdonald clip joint like the rest

My Mom used to work at The Hunters Moon , late 50's early sixties and was there for the opening of the 'new' pub after the fire. I think it was run by Ben and Ivy Fisher in those days. Does anyone else remember the nursery that used to be behind the wooden pub in the late 50's?
I will be glad when the building work finishes for selfish reasons as my doctor's surgery is next door but one, and I always used the Hunter's Moon car park, now it is almost impossible to park anywhere near the doctor's.
I hope they don't do what they have done at our local and put a pay and display machine money redemable at the bar only. Mind you that would be a good excuse to pop in after your appointment for a bite to eat. The menu looks good. Jean.
Our granddaughter Jessica works there part time and loves it. She is in the last year of her A levels. We are going tomorrow for Pete's birthday that is if I can shake this horrible cold off. The second one in three weeks.
I went to Heathland Junior School in the 50's with a boy called Kenneth whose father was the licensee of the Hunter's Moon. I lived in Ashville Avenue. I remember getting off the No. 56 bus once in thick smog. I was only 12 ish and it was so bad, I suddenly found myself up against the pub wall......thank goodness, those days are gone? I think I only ever went in there once in my teenage years, but my sister Marilyn and I used to go to the "Outdoor" to buy pop! Went in there about 6 years ago with my husband for a quick lunch as we were visiting Brum for the day. It was very run down!
