Since the terrible floods a couple of years ago, The Old Rec has gone from strength to strength. The quality of food is matched by the excellent personal service. My wife and I had dinner on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was very relaxed, staff attentive and the food was incredible. Certainly one of the best places to eat in... More

Food is delicious and well presented, even their light lunches or sandwiches treat you well. Their booze knowledge is impressive and their cocktails are expertly concocted. I regularly come to this establishment when i want dependable, excellent service with great food and drink. On a casual night out with friends or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion. I am and... More

I've eaten at the Old Rec repeatedly over the last 12 months, with family and friends from near and far. Not once have I been disappointed by Matt and the team or the food. My brother in law was taken aback to find such great food in Worcester (him being sure that only in London could he get a decent... More

Had a fantastic meal here last night. Lovely relaxed evening with excellent service. Could not fault anything. They even gave us crackers when we said that we were having a very belated Christmas party meal! We will definitely be returning.
