Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Oak and Ivy

Oxford Street, Bilston

Listing: The Oak & Ivy, Oxford Street, Bilston.

Comment:  A modest but good design in a severe Tudor revival, with moderne touches. It lies in a prominent position at the entrance to Bilston town centre from the south.

It is faced in dark maroon brick. The ground floor windows have delicate mullions and transoms resembling the details at The Vine Inn, Wednesfield (grade II Listed), which have survived the installation of uPVC lights.

Moderne doorways with wide plain architraves and triple roll mouldings to the jambs, topped by attached roundels of an oak tree and ivy.
