Worcester City Centre pubs with good ale and bar meals

Hi,

We have booked a few nights in Worcester Whitehouse Hotel in September . (Much to sons horror, he's moving into a new flat a few doors down from the hotel for his 2nd uni year )

Can anyone recommend places within short walking distance for a decent evening bar meal , with a good atmosphere and which also serves good ales ? Hubby loves a good pint of real ale.

Had a quick walk around whilst in Worcester last week and spotted the following pubs which looked ok from the outside.....

The Postal Order

The King Charles

The Cricketers

The Crown (Lloyds No 1)

Ye Olde Talbot

Would you recommend/advise against any of the above, and are there any other good places around that area to try?

Thanks

Now back home from this trip and ,due to a change of plans , have only managed 2 nights instead of the original 4 booked. So only managed to fit a few pubs in this time, but so impressed we are planning on quite a few return visits!

First night son and his flatmate took us to Nandos for a meal which we enjoyed ,especially the Savanna Cider. Then with a thunderstorm and torrential rain we just made it back nearer to the hotel to The Crown and Postal Order for a few drinks afterwards.

Next day we had a lunchtime meal and drink in The Swan with two Nicks. Nice friendly atmosphere and hubby spoilt for choice with choice of ales.

Then in the evening went to The King Charles for quite a few drinks (sampled quite a few different ales and ciders between us lol) and the best ever pie and mash meal we've ever had! Will definitely be making a return visit to the King Charles , we each had different meals and all 3 of us enjoyed our choices. Also enjoyed the glass of chilli bites to go with the drinks afterwards. (Never seen them before and could have done with buying the whole jar full to bring home with us, they were so tasty)

Then went to go to the Firefly but it wasn't where I thought it was . Thought I'd seen it before on the corner close to The King Charles , as you come out to the right . But that was the Royal Exchange and Bar 12 ....am I in completely the wrong area? So with it raining again we walked back to The Crown and then The Postal Order again to get closer to home instead.

I couldn't see The Firefly the next morning either. How do you get to it from The King Charles ?

You'd need to walk out onto the City Walls Road and then up the road next to the big Asda. Firefly isn't in the town centre proper, but on one of the main roads leading into town. It's only about a 5 minute walk from where you were. Really glad you enjoyed your trip and thanks for the nice little review.

There's a new one to try - the Imperial Tavern, which has been opened by Black Country Ales.
