Good night out

We had a great night sipping cocktails and musing over the menu. Great for food or just drinks with friends. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I chanced on the Old Rectifying House when looking for a light dinner on our first ever visit to Worcester on 27th January. Walking by a gentle welcoming glow drew us in. This was more than equalled when we went in to be greeted by bar staff. The very same staff later served us. The food was... More

Actually I think the food is proably better than I'm giving it credit for here, but I can only go on my experience. I had a brie and yorkshire pudding dish thing (can't be more specific I'm afraid) and it was very rich, perhaps too rich. The pub itself could be an incredibly warm and welcoming pub in the centre...

We have been to the Rectifying House several times, it always offers great food and we have never been disappointed. The burgers in particular are worth trying, great selection of beers and especially good in the summer when you can sit in the rear garden.

She took the time to explain the drinks and food on offer and was throughly knowledgable about what was being sold. We asked for 2... More

The atmosphere is lovely, relaxing and calm. The staff are professional but can also have a good chat and laugh with them. Matt is brilliant, helpful and you can... More

We held our wedding party here last summer after a ceremony at the Charles Hastings Room at the University. We chose the Old Rec as it is played a significant part in our relationship - we often met here for a drink in the garden and/or a meal in the early days! We loved the upstairs party room, knew the... More
