A little pub history

The Tame Otter has been serving great food and real ale since the early 19th century. Previously known as the Chequers Inn and the Chequers Hotel, the pub restaurant has had many years of trade sitting alongside the Fazeley Canal which has brought visitors enjoying the waterways around Birmingham through to the village of Hopwas.

Make a day of it

Beside Birmingham and Fazeley Canal our old inn has excellent gardens and is great for a waterside walk. A World War II pillbox stands by the canal bridge and north there is ancient woodland at Hopwas Hayes.
