Olde Seven Stars13-14 Coventry Street
With five ever-changing real ales and two draught ciders, this historic town centre family-friendly inn is well worth visiting. It serves cobs and pork pies, and customers are also welcome to bring their own food at any time (plenty of takeaways nearby) - tableware, serviettes and condiments are provided. It has a large rear garden with a heated marquee, and garden tables which are very popular in summer for enjoying a quiet drink in the sunshine. Live music on the last Friday of the month, and a fortnightly Wednesday quiz as well as charity food evenings when customers compete with their best curry, chilli or even contribute to a communal Christmas meal in early December. The friendly atmosphere and consistently excellent real ales won it CAMRA Worcestershire Pub of the Year 2011 and local Pub of the Year 2013, winning the Gold award in 2014. In 2016 it celebrated 10 continuous years in the Good Beer Guide and was most recently awarded Pub of the Autumn 2018 and Bronze Pub of the Year 2019. CAMRA members are offered all cask ales at the same price as the cheapest by showing their membership card. There is also a loyalty scheme on all draught beers of any sort.
