Although unusual as a pub name today, a ‘mug house’ was a popular term for an alehouse in the 17th century. The Severnside address is a strong clue to its location – right on that river, with just a narrow cobbled road and some river’s edge seating between it and the pub’s flower-decked frontage. Purity Brewing Company’s Mad Goose may be on duty at the bar alongside guest ales and regulars Timothy Taylor Landlord and Wye Valley HPA. Rosie’s Pig cider makes a refreshing alternative, even during the Early May Bank Holiday beer festival which is held in the rear garden. The lunch menu includes a range of crusty bread sandwiches such as the doorstep chip butty; or choose one of the platters served with salad, coleslaw, sweet pickled onion rings, Mug House pickle and a warm baguette. A typical lunch choice could comprise mussels in white wine with garlic and cream; steak and mushroom pie; and a chocolate cheesecake. The AA Rosette-standard Angry Chef (provenance unknown) restaurant comes into its own in the evening, when an adults-only policy comes into force, and seasonally-based dishes.
