A very strange place even for Droitwich, nothing is or looks like it is finished. food poor, a guy( I presume the landlord) shouting at a young lad ( dressed in chef's whites) and treating him like a skivvy, most of the so called ale's...More

Have to say this is one of the worst experiences of eating out I have ever had. It didn’t start well with all 4 of the real ales being off, should have left then. We were seated for aleast 30 minutes before having to ask...More

This is an unpretentious quirky pub. Only a small pub but it does have a small separate restaurant which has gingham table cloths. But for me, the outside is the best. Set on quite a sloped sight the garden is full of nooks and crannies...More

Not great id imagine...steep steps outside and limited space in toilet. I don't think there is a disabled loo but I may be wrong
