We looked in briefly to say hello to some friends, but didn't stay for a drink, owing to the crowds watching the football.

The customers were certainly cheerful and friendly, though we clearly can't comment on the beer or on the staff on this occasion.

Beer ok, just seen the owner being unpleasant about letting a couple of friendly Americans try a taste of bitter ordering the barmaid to "describe" the taste instead... no need - especially at £2 half £3.95 a pint.. I walked out...

Artists Ale was on good form. Pity more pubs have not retained the atmosphere of the Crown & Trumpet.

The Bathams was okay on this visit - still not really a pub feel to it. It is more a bar at a visitor attraction populated mainly with visitors (not all drinkers) rather than locals. Okay for what it is.

I can understand the mixed reviews for this place but I think location, real ales, service and friendly locals means it`s a definite thumbs up from this punter!

After a trip on the Severn Valley Railway, I thought it would be appropriate to give the King & Castle a try. It is part of the railway station and feels like an old waiting room. It doesn't really feel like a pub. 6 ales were on - Hobsons Mild, Exmoor Gold, Wye Valley Butty Bach & Santa Special, Pennine Jingle Bell Rock & Salopian Firkin Freezing. No real cider is served. Was slightly disappointed with this place.

Can't fault this pub. Good choice of lager, dog friendly, welcoming staff and friendly locals

Keeps the pub & restaurant seperate, good idea. Has a very good beer garden/smoking area and the Holden's golden Glow was quite a nice ale.

Weavers seems to be Kidderminster's highlight. It's situated within easy distance of the station, just down the hill towards the town centre. There is a table outside. But there is adequate room indoors for people to sample the range of ales, ciders and craft beers. The selection on Saturday afternoon was Three Tuns XXX, Wye Valley Daisy Duke, RCH Phoenix Gold, Pig Iron Unbeweavable, Corvedale Dark & Delicious & Fownes Upper Gornal Bitter. Ciders were Thatchers Heritage, Abrahalls Lily The Pink, Westons Wyld Wood & Barbourne Golden Drop. 3 KeyKeg beers were Fixed Wheel Pope of Dope & Blackheath Stout & Green Duck Fat Neck. There was also a Belgian beer selection in bottles. Staff and customers all seemed to be knowledgeable. They were relieved that the rush before the Kidderminster Harriers match had subsided. A friendly place that is Kidderminster's best pub in my opinion. Whilst no CAMRA discount was offered, they do appear to have a loyalty card you can get stamped.

Despite being in a modern shop type building this place had quite a pub feel to it and does a decent range of well kept ales.

Not a traditional pub, being in a new build.

Lots of ales and ciders - including my beer of the year - Three Tuns XXX.

Perfect for beer lovers.

The bar features a blackboard stating the various ales, their home, and their distance in miles from the pub.

We stuck to the nearest, Lancer, brewed in Winchcombe, and we were not disappointed. It was a fresh, crisp, light, hoppy composition, and just what was needed on a bright, warm, sunny evening. The tables outside adjoining the village green made for a very pleasant situation in which to enjoy it too.

5 beers on hand pump. Not keen on Wickwar beers but Lancer from Goffs very good (until it ran out) and Hooky bitter. Tried Theakston Old Peculiar which is local to us but had travelled well and was well kept and similar price to North Yorkshire.

It's a hotel bar open to non-residents, with a fair selection of ales.

Prices are rather more than a straight pub as you'd expect, but it's still a pleasant experience. The interior is a mix of ancient and modern, with a smart bar and similar furnishings, but there are many old architectural features along with a large open fire.

It is warm and comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere, and I recommend it.

I have visited this pub on and off for years and it was always good, great bathams and food was nice, however, things have changed, the last time i was there, i had to listen to a customer( obviously a local) standing swearing at the bar and he was drunk, the barman seemed to know him but was far more interested in his mobile phone, there are far too many good pubs to visit

Now a pub that sells Bathams is obviously going to get a good review.

And its in perfect condition here.

They have started advertising steaks at good value, so we thought we would check it out after a walk. The food ordering system is bizarre. You cant order food and drink at the same time. You cannot setup a tab. So one of you orders drinks at a central bar and the other goes through room after room looking for the little kiosk at the back where they take food orders.

When they are not serving punters delicious Bathams.

Eventually managed to get served (again) and food was excellent and quick to come out - but there must be a better way!
