user reviews of the Ewe and Lamb, Bromsgrove

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Just to add, reading the other reviews, I also found the bar staff pretty sullen, seems if they 'know' you they will server you and chat but if you are just passing through forget it.

Called in tonight. Drank and ate. I have to say the food was very good and on point with the prices. however the beer, sevice and toilets were less so.

I'd certainly call back to eat but the prices for a drink mean I wouldn't stay after. That said, there were plenty ove overdressed locals around the bar so it seems its not just about the price of the beer at this place.

Seems a popular place, I'd not been for a year or so and was disappointed to see the garden. Was once was open views out across several miles of Worcestershire, and the main reason we visit the pub, is now a fenced in yard. Everyone was dressed in their Sunday best, when I eventually got served the beer was fine, overpriced for the area but fine. Inside the pub was quite stuffy with the smell of cooking so the only option was to sit outside and look at their fence. A real shame. Given the lack of any view we moved on up the road to the Handbury turn where the staff were much friendlier and the pub less stuffy.

Went in Friday lunchtime just after 2pm, pub was heaving. Bar service could have been a bit quicker but had a couple of pints of the excellent Wye Valley HPA. Ordered a snack lunch, the "posh hot dog" which came quickly and was so huge I couldn't finish it! Found all the staff to be friendly and helpfull Large garden area which looks like it could be vert pleasant when the weather warms up.

Visited with my wife in November for a pint.

It feels strange.

Its a lovely pub - I used to go there as a child and sit outside in the "lean to" and barns, now converted as the pub expanded. Barman sullen - no please or thank you - do they train them to be like this because Ii meet so many - despite my saying hello, please may I have..., thanks etc.

Inside, despite being nearly empty, I had to ask "locals" to allow me to get to the bar. A nearly empty pub and yet they hog the small bar. They were yuppie wannabes.

A couple sat opposite us and I got the impression that they were not happy with the food they were served.

I will try again - I hope I'm not wasting time/money.

My husband and I ate there last Tuesday (22nd June) and I would NOT recommend this place at all and definately will not be eating there again.
The pub was not that busy yet we waited ages for our starters. My husband has ordered steak and his peppercorn sauce tasted as it they had dropped an entire jar of salt into it.
By the time another sauce came his meal had gone cold.
The service was poor yet the waiting staff had enough time to talk and flick teatowels at each other in front of their hungry guests!!
They really need to sort out their customer service. If they had offered him a coffee or reheated his meal it would have been something but as it was they lost two desserts and coffees as we left.

dissappointing over priced food on more than one visit. such a pity as it could be a great pub.

still they are coining it in so until we stop eating there it will stay the same, beer is well kept .

wine starting to get into the silly prices, management not over friendly when saying I'm still hungry after a 2 course meal........

Not closed at all, website is here,

Changed its name back to the Ewe and Lamb from Epic. Still a pub more interested in food than drink.

Staff always polite and usualy an ale or two on tap. Busy at weekends with the middle aged crowd.

Although still more of an upmarket brasserie, the name has reverted to The Ewe and Lamb, as of Autumn 2007.

This pub no longer exists. It is now the Epic Bar & Brasserie, 68 Hanbury Road Stoke Prior and has moved considerably upmarket
