Walter de Cantelupe Inn

Village pub known for its personal touch

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Beer festival

Just four miles from the centre of Worcester, this privately-owned free house commemorates a 13th-century bishop of that city, although he was strongly opposed to his parishioners brewing and selling ales to raise money for church funds. Whitewashed walls are bedecked with flowers in the summer, while the interior’s wooden beams and stone floor testify to the inn’s 17th-century origins. The daily menu on the blackboard features fresh ingredients, sometimes supplied by the villagers. Soup with locally baked bread; a fillet of salmon with lemon and dill butter; and warm chocolate brownie with a scoop of ice cream make up a typical three-course selection. The walled and paved garden is fragrantly planted with clematis, roses and honeysuckle, and its south-facing aspect can be a real suntrap. Cask ales include a particularly well-kept Timothy Taylor Landlord, and beer festivals are held at Easter and in October.
