We called in without a reservation on the off chance after watching the cricket, and the staff managed to fit us in although they did warn us we had to wait a shot while. They had some good ales and wine and an interesting but not too expensive menu. Will definitely go again when next in Worcester.

Had a rare chance to meet husband for lunch...we both ordered burgers. What a lovely surprise that it was so nice as we weren't sure when I suggested meeting there. We had great service at the bar, we were shown to a table and had a great meal. Good value too.

Despite being local I haven't been here before and I wasn't disappointed. It is a lovely place with a nice ambience. There is plenty of seating and the food looked worth a try! I thought drinks were reasonably priced and will come here again

We went to the Old House for lunch. It was Sunday afternoon which meant Sunday. Dinner". Very old restaurant/building. The Rectifying House is old English for distillery. The food was very good. Sit down restaurant where they took orders at your table. Besides the ambiance of being right beside the River Severn. There is also an outside terrace as well... More

Are here recently with friends. Liked the situation near the river , nice ambiance, lots of candles etc . Staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the food was a little disappointing ; calamari starter was over fried therefore very greasy , courgette fritter was coated in a similar batter . Main course of fish was also over cooked .... More

Fantastic food, decent portions and well presented. Very contemporary feel to the food, nice juxtaposition to the historic building. Staff very good, but friendly and helpful too. Were advised of the wait on arrival but were offered a table in the bar to have a drink and peruse the menu, table was free by the time the food was ready... More
