Kidderminster Road, Cutnall Green, DROITWICH SPA, WR9 0PJ
In a former life, Roger Narbett was the England football team chef; his soccer memorabilia can be found in the Players Lounge of this charming pub he now runs with wife Joanne. Its traditional look comes from the cranberry-coloured walls, open fire, church-panel bar and richly hued furnishings. Indeed, some might also make a case for including the range of real ales, such as Otter Bitter, Timothy Taylor and Wye Valley HPA in the bar, adjoining which is the country-style Garden Room with plush sofa and hanging tankards. The menus offer a wide choice, from sandwiches, deli platters and 'bucket food' to pub classics like chicken curry and shortcrust pie of the day. Among the top performers are slow-cooked shoulder of Cornish lamb, chorizo, gratin dauphinoise, pea and mint purée; and baked gnocchi al forno with porcini, dolcelatte and spinach, truffled rocket and pecorino.
