Britannia Inn, 109 Kent Street, Upper Gornal, Dudley, West Midlands.

Built in about 1780, the Britannia has long been a home brew pub.

It was acquired by butcher Henry Perry in 1864, and the Perry family ran the pub for the next 127 years. Louis Peacock Perry and his wife Sarah took over from Henry, and from 1942, Henry's grand-daughter Sallie took over with her husband Wally.

The pub in its later years was known as "Sallie's", but brewing ceased in 1959.

After Sallie's death, the pub was was taken over by Phllip Bellfield, and brewing recommenced in 1995 but ceased shortly after acquisition by Daniel Batham & Son Ltd in 1997.

The pub is still trading as a popular Batham's house.
