Friendly high street brewpub. The beers were a bit too malty for us but lovely old building and there was a trad cider handpull as well.

Very good pints of Brandy Snapper and Whistling Joe. The first ones enjoyed in the really impressive garden. On retuning later on having a pint in the bar, for me not as good an experience as the furniture and layout give it the feel of a cafe or tearoom. Still it was busy and friendly and chatty so overall a very good pub.

Upto 3 house ale, and guests.

Food looked good and reasonably priced.

Fantastic garden by the river. Worth a visit!

Everytime i have been in here has been after a long walk..... Their home made ales, which I am sure are delightful, have been resisted for something colder and more refreshing. Superb garden. Will br back.

From the front this gem doesn't look anything special and upon entering its like steping back in time to a really old fashioned bar but when you see the beer range, remembering that 3 of the 5 on tap are actually brewed here you know you're in for a treat.
I had 2 of the range, Brandy Snapper and Whistling Joe, both spot on and about 2-80 a pint, and the locals were a friendly bunch, however the real bonus about this pub was not the inside but the rear garden, its huge and leads down to the river where boats can moor and you can sit and watch the (water) world go by, just about the perfect place to enjoy a pint in the sun, go there and enjoy ;)

Stopped off for a pint on a bike ride last Sunday at around 12.30, as we have done several times over the last couple of years. Unfortunately once again it was very quiet, which is a real shame as they consistently offer a great range of their own ales, draught cider and a couple of guests. The Brandy Snapper in particular (as others have mentioned) is a lovely pint! With a plum location in the middle of town, and a great beer garden for the warmer days and evenings, I really hope they get the trade they deserve at other times.

In here last Saturday lunch time.
6 handpulls, one for cider and two guest ales.
The other three are from their own on the premises brewery.
Whistling Joe, John Baker Original and the one I went for Brandysnapper which
sold for 2.75 a pint. I would liked to have stayed to try the other two but didn't have the time.
Large Garden at the back that runs down to the river.

Excellent beer, the landlord doesn't drink beer apparently !!!

Cosy in the winter, fantastic riverside gardens in the summer. Micro brewery on the premises provides Brandy Snapper (amongst others) which is one of my all time favourites. Always welcoming. Good pub food. A gem.

good ale

Excellent ale house with superb home brewed beers. Landlord is friendly and accommodating - I was a little worse for wear due to excessive cider activity at the nearby Monkey House but he took it all in his stride. Quality food and one of the best beer gardens around.

I have been to this pub 3 or 4 times now having been in the Pershore area on bell ringing outings, i have never once had a bad pint and the food here is simple but great. i always think that Spencer and Marianne are very welcoming. All the beers they brew are fantastic especially the JBO (john bakers original), the garden if the sun is out is good at any time of the year and i know first hand that Spencer himself landscaped it, it is a beautiful place! the pub is simple but kept well and is what most people want from an English pub. Alot of people these days want music, pool tables and TV's, but you can get that just up the road in Pershore, but if you're after great real ale, good pub food and a friendly atmosphere then the Brandy Cask is for you. i have to say that i would give this place 10/10.

Enjoyed a good selection of beers on this visit, including their own Ale Mary. Also enjoyed the food and won't miss this pub when in the area.

NIce little pub with own brewed beer, depending on the mood of owner can be very pleasant or horrible.

Pop down from Comberton for a swift half every now and again.Very mediocre place,poor service,often warm beer.Suggest you get your act together.

his is the home of the Brandy Cask brewery and what a good pint it is. My own favourite is the Brandy Snapper. the landlord is one of the organisers of the very successful Worcester Beer Festival. If you're in Pershore then don't miss this one.It has a really nice beer garden which backs on to the Avon,and some great carp tanks.

Not been since last summer, but still a great pub. A superb range of ales from their own brewery and guests. Food very good. Best pub in Pershore.

This is a grand pub with good food and excellent beer. It was busy when we called but we were politely attended to, and we had no problem with the service at all. Went into the garden area and saw the brewery and there was no problem when I asked if I could take photos. A pub not to be mssed when in the area.

We had a couple of reasonable meals and some good beer in the garden of this pub during the summer, with our children and dog. But when we tried popping in for a Christmas drink everything seemed to have changed. The landlord was very rude to us, even shouting that I probably couldn't even read the "no dogs" sign on the door. It was an honest mistake, but the abuse was just too much. Similar reports from other former regulars confirm that this is a pub in decline. Best avoided.

Good traditional pub with good beers brewed at the back of the pub. "Snapper" is well worth a try
TheGunner - 19 Dec 2006 00:13
Superb pub with a fantastic beer garden. Own beers great and always a couple of interesting guests on tap. Food is good also.
Caraman - 8 Aug 2006 12:32
Excellent beers at very reasonable prices, presumably because they are brewed on site.
Best pub in town by a country mile!!

my uncle used to run this pub we visited rarely but enjoyed the company. his name was percy newal
anonymous - 25 Dec 2003 22:42
Yep, guy brews three of his own beers on site in his own micro brewery as well as that he has one or two guest ales a week. Interior is well... dull but if there is any sunshine get in the garden absolutely gorgeous! Best pube in a ten mile radius and Spencer the landlord is the best grumpy landlord you have ever met!
