Our View

Sitting in the lee of wooded hills, parts of this rambling building date back 600 years. The peaceful village inn is home to the Teme Valley Brewery, which uses locally grown hops in a range of curiously named cask-conditioned ales called This, That, T'Other & Wotever Next? Ciders from local producers add to the selection on the bar; on a sunny day the perfect place to sup is in the beer garden by a bend in the River Teme. Winter sees huge log fires warm the timeless interior. Ingredients used in the kitchen are equally parochial, with everything apart from Cornish and Welsh seafood coming from the inn's own organic plot, nearby farms and estates. From the seasonal menu, starters may include smoked pigeon Caesar salads, home-made pâtés and terrines of port from pigs raised on site. Mains could be game cassoulet with locally shot muntjac venison, finishing with a cheeseboard with three local cheeses. Beer festivals are held here three times a year; farmers' markets every month.

About the area

Discover Worcestershire

Worcestershire is a county of rolling hills, save for the flat Vale of Evesham in the east and the prominent spine of the Malverns in the west. Nearly all of the land is worked in some way; arable farming predominates – oilseed rape, cereals and potatoes – but there are concentrated areas of specific land uses, such as market gardening and plum growing.

Worcester is the county town, and home to Worcestershire County Cricket Club, which has what some regard as the most attractive grounds in the country, in a delightful setting with views of Worcester Cathedral. The Malverns, Great and Little, set on the slopes of the Malvern Hills, are renowned for their refinement. Great Malvern, terraced on its hillside site, came to prominence as a genteel spa for well-to-do Victorians, rivalling the likes of Bath, Buxton and Cheltenham with its glorious surroundings.

Sir Edward Elgar was a Worcester man, and his statue stands on the High Street, facing the cathedral. The cottage where he was born is now a museum and he is commemorated on the £20 note. Other notable Worcestershire figures include poet A E Housman, chocolate magnate George Cadbury; and Lea and Perrins, inventors of Worcestershire sauce.
