Herbert Austin's famous motor works stood near this Wetherspoon pub, which bears the name of his famous Wolseley Hornet model (not the insect), produced from 1930 until the mid-1970s. The usual selection of house beers and lagers are found and food is the usual Wetherspoon menu. It is somewhat smaller than the average Wetherspoon house and quite dimly lit. There are a few seats out front, and there is a rear patio area.
