Great for a Pint (and a roast)
Down a side street just past Worcester’s main market, is the Paul Pry a traditional Victorian Pub with saloon and back room. Owned by the Pope family this beautiful pub does everything well. The beer is brewed for the pub by the Theme Valley Brewery and they regularly change their ciders and beers and can talk you through the weekly choices. They grow produce on their allotment and this shapes the weekly menu – a good spot for a beer and bar snack any day of the week – but check them out on a Sunday for a mouth-watering roast!
