Up a steep hill from the town centre, this friendly ancient pub is worth the climb, or alternatively there's some limited parking nearby along Wyre Hill. The attractive black and white half timbered building dating from 1466 is the oldest pub in Bewdley, very nearly opposite the original old Town Hall. It has three main rooms served from a single bar. There's an open fire in winter, sometimes used for roasting chestnuts, and an ancient wooden beamed interior. At the back is a pleasant beer garden with views over the town, and a partly enclosed lounge with high tables in adapted ancient out-buildings. It's a well-supported friendly community pub serving up to five beers from local and regional breweries and a selection of Belgian bottled beers. Cider is from Severn Cider in Gloucestershire. Cobs and delicious local Wyre Pies are always available. Bar skittles, bagatelle and a selection of board games are available. Folk music and song sessions are every 2nd Wednesday of the month in the bar, and on Sunday evenings there's a quiz at 8pm. A little gem of a pub. Cycles can be parked at the rear via the left hand passageway. If locked, ask at the bar.
