The Harp Hotel is a notable landmark of Albrighton High Street, cast with a cream-coloured exterior and easy to spot from any direction.

The pub is a familiar landmark in the village

Purchased by Black Country Ales, and totally refurbished and reopened in April 2021, it now has one large U shaped room with a central bar and the standard furnishings of the brewery and pub owner.

For licensees Liz Bryce and Phil Handley, the Harp started out as a relief management job during the Covid-19 pandemic but, as Ms Bryce puts it, they fell in love with the place and the surroundings.

Liz Bryce said the pub was a lovely place in a beautiful setting

She said: "Myself and Phil have been here for three years and had been working for Black Country Ales, running the Courthouse in Dudley before that for five years, but during the pandemic, we couldn't open our pub, but they could open this one.
