Potentially 4 real ales on, although 3 had run out over the weekend. I went for the one remaining Hooky. And it was superb. Pub is nice enough for a one room open plan building. Would come back for the beer.

Called in here hoping to fine good ale and atmosphere. Not a real ale drinkers paradise. Most seem to be later drinkers. Ales limited and not great. Apparently the place is under new landlord, with the promise of music etc. Not a great experience.

Cracking place, New managers in, atmosphere is cool but friendly, no nonsense booze, tunes and soon decent snacks - no pretentious crap here, just a long awaited alternative to town centre drinking in Worcester.

Located a short walk from the cathedral, it is OK for a quick pint at the start or end of the evening but not much more.

Selection of foreign beer on draught and a couple of real ale... had the "doom bar" which was reasonable but nothing special.

Seems to be aiming for the more upmarket customer, the night we drank in there a Thursday had a large group of business people drinking champagne.

Beer is well kept, tidy if a little characterless but a good place to watch the sport over a good pint

Disregard the below review it was meant for the Cardinals Hat. The hand writing is pretty awful after a few pints.

Reports of a management change together with a different target consumer. This place is now big on continental largers of all types.It all adds to the variety found amongst Worcester pubs.

Very bright (not in a good way), PubCo feel and one of the only Pub's in Worcs where everyone seems to stare at you on your way in, unless your really a fan of the Hook Norton beers I think you'd be wasting your time.

Rather a soulless one-room town pub, but welcoming staff and locals. Spartan and lacking in soft furnishings. No food. Notable though as being the northernmost tied-house of Hook Norton. Range of Hooky beers well served.

Friendly pub serving Hook Norton Ales. Dog friendly and sport was showing on TV screen. Had a half of Hook Norton Flagship in good condition.

Friendly town pub serving Hook Norton Ales. Tried the Dark and Flagship, both excellent. Friendly staff and locals.

Friendly, clean pub with good beer. Doesn't do food apart from snacks that include ring-pull tins of olives, nuts etc. from a space-age dispenser. Five minutes walk from Foregate St station, and well worth it.
