The Bear & Ragged Staff

Station Road, BRANSFORD, WR6 5JH

Built in 1861 as an estate rent office and stables, this lovely old free house is easily reached from both Malvern and Worcester. The current owners have created a reputation for good food and beers, such as local Hobsons Twisted Spire (named after Cleobury Mortimer's parish church) and Cornish-brewed Sharp's Doom Bar. A typical meal might involve pan-seared scallops, black pudding, wonton crisps, watercress purée and balsamic reduction; and pan-fried duck breast, duck leg bon bon, dauphinoise potatoes, fine beans and passionfruit jus. Sandwiches are available from Monday to Saturday at lunchtime only, and there is an extensive range of wheat-free and gluten-free dishes.
