Fantastic final

The heat was on for the final of the Marston’s dominoes competition hosted by The Clarendon.

Dominoes is a traditional pub game where points are scored for making the ends of the tile layout add up to certain totals, traditionally multiples of 3 and 5.

Our competition has been running for over 25 years and is a battle between Midlands-based pub teams for champion status. Every year, our pub teams sign up to compete in the hope of making it to the final!

Wendy, Manager at The Bull Hotel in Codsall, organises the competition, co-ordinating the heats and communicating with every team. She’s a legend when it comes to drumming up support and building excitement for the final, compered by WCR FM radio host Ian Burt!

On the night, four pub teams battled it out to be crowned winner:

  • Round of Beef, Halesowen
  • Old Bush, Cradley Heath
  • Coseley Cricket Club
  • Gardeners Retreat, Stoke on Trent

After a tense competition, The Round of Beef team came out on top. Congratulations guys!
