Some History of this Pub
Following a period in which this pub was closed, the name was changed to the Black Bear in 1983.

Zachariah Guest was both licensed victualler and charter master. Born in the parish of Sedgley in 1799, he kept the pub with his wife Mary. He married her in 1834 - her maiden name was Waterford.

Zachariah Guest retired in 1868 and he died six years later.
