We sat down to eat in the restaurant downstairs which was nice and tables are spaced out which I like. Service... More

We visited The Old Rec on Bank Holiday Monday. The food was absolutely delicious! The visit was however a bit spoiled by incredibly slow service. We waited half an hour to be told that the wild boar burger one of our party had ordered was not available. It then took a further 20 minutes for the food to arrive. Dessert... More

Enjoyable meal in relaxed atmosphere. Chicken & chorizo pie particularly good. Food all very attractively laid out. Pleased to see Albarino on wine list.

I booked a table for my birthday a few weeks ago and right from the booking through to paying the bill the staff were great! I had initially asked to book a table for 15 and the lady i spoke to explained that they normally only allow for up to 12 over the busy weekend but was very nice and... More

Booked into TORH after the first day of Worcester v NZ was rained off. A very good menu which made me order three courses of really well cooked and presented dishes and a small but interesting wine list. Very pleasant staff and interesting décor.

we went here for lunch. It is dark inside and even darker when a lorry or bus passes on the busy road outside, It was OK but we were pleased we cancelled a booking for dinner. It is after all a pub. It was however convenient for the cricket ground over the bridge
