We had dinner with some friends at this pub. Despite the fact that we'd pre-ordered it took about 2 1/2 hours for us to complete a three-course meal. This was due entirely to the long wait before we started to eat, which was then repeated between courses. The place wasn't exactly crowded, either: I reckon there were only about 15... More

Dear John Q, Thank you for taking time to post a review. It's a shame we were not able to chat when you were here as I do like to take the opportunity to personally discuss customer's experience especially if it is their first visit. I'm sorry you were not satisfied with the service and choice of dishes on the... More

We visited for lunch on Saturday. The service, and food were excellent, far better than the average with delicious freshly cooked vegetables all very attractively presented. The food was excellent value for money. Steak and ale pie was rated as particularly delicious by the company. We will certainly return. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant and could not really be faulted... More

'The Walter' is a genuinely lovely country pub with a warm welcome for us and our Labrador puppy, After a long day travelling and visiting a nearby dog show in Norton, we booked in to stay for one night Bed, breakfast and evening meal. A cosy corner of Worcester, the roaring log fire and friendly locals made our stay perfect,... More

I'm really glad you had such an enjoyable stay here at Walter de Cantelupe Inn last weekend. Having also Stella, your fun-loving black lab to stay brought back memories of my late lab, Monty. So well behaved - Stella, not Monty ! Very glad, too, you liked the Sunday morning breakfast. I believe the extra effort in using good commodities... More

We were having a family reunion dinner in Worcester and needed somewhere to stay overnight and via the internet we found the Walter de Cantelope Inn. On arrival we were greeted by Martin the owner who made us most welcome and immediately showed us to our room. The room was most spacious,well furnished, warm and comfortable.

Guest reviews are always useful, however, positive reviews are especially welcome. The staff and I realise that satisfied customers are what we are here for and there's never a moment that we are not considering what visitors might want, whether they are just dropping into the Bar for a drink or staying for one or two days. So thank you... More

I stayed for the first time at the Walter de Cantelupe Inn, and what a refreshing change from the over priced corporate hotel chains I normally frequent.

We were undecided where to go for Sunday lunch while visiting family. My partner checked the Internet and found this place. We booked as we weren't sure how busy it gets. We arrived at 12.30 to an empty car park. We did wonder if we had done the right thing. On entering I noticed all the food tables were reserved.... More

Thank you very much indeed for the review. When I opened my business here some time ago, I wanted to offer customers simply very good food, real traditional British beer and a choice of decent wine by the glass. There was no intention to be a gastro pub (awful term) or offer 'fine dining' (another relic from last century). Although... More

I stayed in the Walter de Cantelupe for 4 weeks while on business in Worcester. It was a home from home and I have fond memories of the whole experience. The Walter is a world away from 'Inns' which masquerade as pubs but are really average hotels: it is the real thing, big fire, small cosy rooms (only 3 so... More

Amazing staff, clean rooms, good food, and a very comfortable bed...all that you need and more. Breakfast was hot and delicious, real blood sausage! Clean sheets, a hot shower in our ensuite, and free wireless. We were there visiting family and will be there again on our next visit.

In the main, visitors staying overnight here are from the UK so it's particulary interesting to extend our hospitality to overseas tourists. All customer comments are welcome and I do note both the positive and, sometimes, points that are raised that are able to be improved upon. It's very satisfying to receive such an appreciative review and especially pleased you... More
