This Instagram-friendly gin bar is another firm favourite with students.

A huge variety of gin cocktails are served in equally huge glass goblets, although other spirits and craft beers are also available.

The menu is similarly eclectic, serving everything from salads to pizza to classic British pub grub.

DEAL: There’s a 2-4-1 offer on cocktails from 5-7pm on Fridays

Hogshead describes itself as the best pub in Wolverhampton on its Instagram page. And if you’re a beer fan, you might just agree with them.

Serving craft IPAs, cask ales, premium lagers and ciders, Hogshead offers up something special along with a cosy beer garden to enjoy yours in. (There’s also a decent selection of craft gins and cocktails for those dissenters among you.)

Beyond booze, Hogshead puts on a great pub quiz, gaming tournaments and is the perfect spot to watch live sport.

DEAL: Get any 2 craft cans or bottles for £5 on a Sunday from 5pm


4) The Bohemian

Situated on Litchfield Street, The Bohemian is a lively, industrial-looking bar with a quirky Tiki-themed cocktail menu.

If flashy drinks aren’t your thing, you can also opt for a craft beer or cider with a side of pizza.

Its selection of hand-stretched stone-fired pizzas include the creatively-named ‘Meat the Focker’, ‘Sergeant Pepper’ or the heart-stopping ‘Cheeseboard’, with brie, feta, Stilton, Grana Padano and mozzarella!

DEAL: 2-4-1 cocktails and live music from 4.30-7pm on Tuesdays.
