Best food in Worcester

Have been to the Old Rec a few times now and it genuinely gets better & better. It's good enough to go to for just the cocktails, the Queen's Peach is particularly good. My wife had the Ploughman's Pork Pie to start and it is much more than just a pork pie, the combination of the egg, cheese... read more

We arrived ten minutes early for our table, and although we were served drinks at the bar ( while being stared at by "clicky" regulars), we then felt in the way. We were not offered a seat etc, just left in the way at the bar. Eventually, menus arrived and after 15 minutes were asked by a heavy waitress, "... More

Really enjoyed a recent visit to the Old Rec..great choice of drinks and some obscure ones which were a nice surprise (great to see Otter on tap) The menu serves up some interesting choices and the meat platter for starter and rib eye for main were extremely nice. Look forward to returning soon to try more dishes on the menu..... More

went for an afternoon drink in the bar upstairs to find parents sat on sofa, two kids and a dog running round. Not what I expected, especially with the large beer garden outside. Ruined a lovely G&T served by an equally concerned bar tender!

We had a lovely evening for Valentines Night. It was a set meal, well cooked and well balanced. The staff were very obliging. I will definitely go back

We nipped in for some lunch as we were visiting for the day. I used to live in Worcester and had always wanted to try it so we did! First impressions were it was cold (I kept my coat on!) and a bit tired in places but we liked the ambience nevertheless. We both had the beef and pulled pork... More

Excellent food and freshly prepared. Attentive staff and you can eat outside if you wish. Would happily recommend to anyone (as it was also recommended to me) and would visit again.

Went for a meal here earlier in the year and was really impressed with the food, I even said 'the best meal I've had in Worcester'. Although front of house forgot about us on several occasions we had a really good experience. I therefore booked a table here for my birthday meal. We arrived 3 minutes late and where told... More

The reputation of the Old Rectifying House is well deserved. Set in a beautiful old building it has great atmosphere. The new menu is excellent. Try the suet pudding!

We loved it here. The cocktails were divine, some nice new mixes made a change from the usual cocktails. The waiting staff were excellent and the meal was paced perfectly. The food was fantastic. However we did feel the portions should have been a little bigger for the price we paid. We did not leave feeling hungry but not particularly... More
