please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

In Worcester to pursue cricket matters, and to visit the high ranking Cardinal's Hat (sadly not open) I was by thirst driven to find other pubs. This place was solid gold: friendly young bar person, bantering older locals & a smoochy pub dog. Lovely tile & glass work indoors & out, a cheap pint (Bank's Bitter @2.95), open before lunch. In my book a good pub.

A bit "rough and ready" but not a bad pint and pleasant enough staff

Googled Real Ale Pubs, Worcester and this came up. Decided to try it out. Promising enough building - a classic looking victorian corner pub with nice etched windows. Nice enough inside.

Three real ales on - The sunbeam was off but the Mastons was OK. I'm not a fan of Marstons, but this was decent enough.

All OK - but I think New Street is the place to head for.

Standard sort of boozer. Really nice exterior, wood floor and stained glass windows interior. Decent ale. Could see it might be a bit `lively` of a night. Phone thing happened to myself and a girlfriend years back...we`d had too much beer, some robbing chancer and not paying attention to what was going on...s*** happens

I am going to write facts not accusations. Arrived at the Eagle Vaults at 11.30pm on the 31/12/2013. Ordered a drink and too a seat. My partner then used her phone to send two texts. Just before midnight she went to use her phone again to ring her children. She then discovered that her phone and £60 in cash were missing from the handbag. We then left the pub and informed the police. She then entered the Eagle Vaults to ask if anyone had seen what happened. I then went in after her, but was warned by customers not to get involved. I was then forced to sit down. I could see my partner being confronted by 4 males all shouting in her face. I then exited the pub and called the police again. I was then physically pushed down the road and spat upon by one of the customers who was trying to goad me into a fight. He was then joined by two other customers who also tried provoking me. My partner then came and stood in front of them and pushed them back up the road. She is only tiny and took on three of them (Big brave lads). The police arrived and statements where taken. The first guy who threatened me was then escorted into the pub by a woman I believe to be the bar manager.
All fact, so you judge the place

Corner plot pub just down from the shopping high st.

Large amount of pump clips adorn the wall to the right of the bar.

4 hand pumps that were serving 3 beers, Banks Bitter, Marstons Single hop, East Kent Goldings and Banks Sunbeam. I opted for the East Kent Goldings which was creamy but decent.

Lovely glass windows depicting an Eagle with stain glass above these. Externally as well this place is stunning a real gem of a building.

Wooden floorboards throughout except for the carpeted area towards the toilets.

Nice size bar and seems to be the 'drop in' type of town centre pub that will always do a decent trade.

Certainly nothing bad to say about this place and I thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and banter between the bar man and the locals.

Has a Victorian exterior, tiles on the wall and acid etched windows.

Nothing remarkable inside, a average pub interior.

Managed to get one pint in before it shut on a Saturday night, can't remember what I had but it was reasonable quality (it had been a long drinking day!!)

New landlord as of January and runs it with his wife, never met the gentleman mentioned in the comment below. To be honest the refit is typical 1970s front room and doesn’t fit well with the exterior of this wonderful pub, beers are well kept even if the range is somewhat limited, been in a few times lately once on new years and had a nice relaxed drink the regulars are friendly and the landlord on our second visit was very helpful and a nice bloke, good pub but let down by the décor.

At 28 years old, this is the worst pub i have ever been too in my life. I have never been ridiculed or confronted with aggression in a pub. What amazed me about my experience in the Eagles Vault last night, was that the person taunting me was the barman! Despite visiting with my girlfriend and a few friends, the barman openly taunted me over the bar to the amusement of his skin head regulars about my sexuality, implying that i was gay and somehow making eyes at him (in quite an aggressive 'your not welcome here way'. I am not gay, but it really isn't the point. If this is the prejudice gay people encounter then its an eye opener. The reason for his attack I have no idea, aside from perhaps ordering a pint for me and coke for my pregnant girlfriend. If friends hadn't already paid up for their drinks i would of walked straight out.

So if you want to be drinking in what feels like a BNP rally with a brain-dead barman, this is your place.

If not, avoid like the plague and hopefully it won't be long before this place closes down (again).

went into this pub a few weeks ago, has now reopened after a refit, to be honest the refit could have been a little more imaginative, but the outside and original features of the pub are amazing, the beers banks and the bar man was really friendly and i think hailed from wolverhampton, he even gave us a quiz he had thought up himself, no prizes just for fun and we really enjoyed having a laugh with him about some of the answers, a good traditional pub with a really friendly bar man

Visited this pub at 1pm on a Wednesday .Just 4 customers who did not stay.Both doors in the bar wide open causing an arctic blast. This Marstons pub after a lengthy closure and refit ,that looks incredible cheap and nasty, is up for let.
Banks Bitter and Pedigree on tap.This traditional small pub needs a licencee to inject some character into it, and as a pub it deserves to survive.

Looked in the window 3 days ago and it appears the refurb is almost complete. No sign of an opening date yet.

It has been closed for while, hopefully only for redecoration. The interior tries to match the wonderful tiled exterior and etched windows. Agood city centre pub for a quick drink.

Lively corner pub on Friar St just off the main shopping street. Popular for watching sports.
