“One of the top 3 pubs in Worcester”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This pub claims to have been a tavern since 1577 and it has a delicious historical feel to it. None of the themed and 'plastic' corporate chain formula here. I visited a few years back when it was a good traditional restaurant. Now it's been turned back into a 'proper' pub serving a good selection of real ales, ciders and lagers at reasonable prices. So often pubs in unique/historcal locations overcharge customers for the privelage of being there - not here!Log burning stove, stripped wooden floors, ancient wood carvings on the panelled walls - great atmosphere. The unique selling point is the homemade pies and mash they serve all day. Good crisp crusts with some innovative fillings, peas and a choice of mash flavours served on an old fashioned white enamelled metal plate. £7.95 whatever pie you choose. I went with my son and his friend and it was a perfect venue for a quiet boys night out.

“Excellent real Ale Pub”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

They say this is Worcester's newest pub in Worcester's oldest
building. Only opened in 2013 but has quickly developed into the
best proper pub in Worcester. Wide choice of real ales available, interior amazing and a very pleasant atmosphere in the pub.Oh
for more pubs like this.

“Great pies”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Can definitely recommend the steak and stilton pie, but around the table we were all happy with our pies. One veggie among us, who had the Heidi pie. Maybe there could be a few more veggie options as the Heidi has goats' cheese in which not everyone likes. That said it apparently wasn't too goaty. Lovely pastry on all pies, nice and light.

“Worcesters finest”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Superb public house, an amazing range of local real ales in an old inn that deserves its place in history. The staff were very friendly and it is very cosy. Not to be missed.
