The bank holiday weekend event at The Codsall Station was so popular, staff ran out of beer and ale on the third and final day.

There were 33 real ales being served over the four days at the Chapel Lane pub, which is part of the Holden's chain.

Landlady Megan Sadler, who runs the boozer with partner and landlord Tony Lardner, said it was a great few days.

"This was the pub's 23rd beer festival and it was the most successful one yet," she said.

"We sold out of our 3,000 beers and ales, so on Sunday we had to close the beer tent. We still had music and catering though.

"We are just so thankful to everyone who came along on the weekend to support it – it was very busy and we had hundreds of people.

"We've run the pub for three years now and it's just got more and more popular."

The pub will be hosting another beer festival during August bank holiday.
