    Somewhere around the Worcester area.

    Dinner and evening at a pub.

    If your’re interested leave a comment below with links to any nice pubs we might use (that have accommodation) and email me, subject ‘Worcester’.

    Timing all depends on replies but this year likely Sept/Oct.

    Hi All,

    To set the ball rolling will suggest 3 local “non-city” venues that offer both accommodation and good food:

    Bank House Hotel, Bransford (Olde Worlde, golf course, 3m Worcester)

    The Swan Inn, Hanley Swan (Village green type, v popular, near Malvern)

    The Baiting House, Upper Sapey (Out in sticks, excellent food, 9m Worcester)

    Am sure someone with recent experience can suggest the best Worcester venues and accommodation.

    Another local venue to add to above list:

    The Crown Inn & Sandys, Ombersley. (Renowned village inn, 3m Worcester)

    Probably can make that weekend. Would be coming from North Somerset on the Saturday morning and going to Mid-Wales on the Sunday, if that helps anyone.

    What sort of pub crawl is likely after dinner? Thinking of taxis/getting back to hotel etc

  • #11420

    Just a point t Bank House is out on its own. Moving on from there will require taxi. Unless you walk a mile or so to the Fox.

    Heads up to those with Hotels.com or Expedia Rewards accounts – they list the hotel mentioned so you can get your usual 10% off the website price.

    Well I think I’ll treat my self and stay at Bank House. I’m too much of a lightweight drinker to do pub crawls without adequate supervion anyway

    Hi all. As per SB’s earlier e-m request, have proffered for consideration an alternative venue in town to eliminate the need for taxi’s.

    Ye Olde Talbot Inn (Olde English Inns)

    As being fairly local, I’m happy to go wherever is decided.

    I would be up for the Ye Olde Talbot Inn rather than the Bank House.

    What’s the parking situation like in Worcester?

    • #11427

      b-bob
      Participant

      Hi Crikey,

      Multi storey car parks, 1 opposite Cathedral (next to Talbot), 1 above main shopping centre; 3 or 4 sizeable open air pay and display types within 400 yards of the Cathedral. Wouldn’t advise street parking.

      Hope this helps.

    My 2 cents. Premier inn with paid parking – 10-15 mins walk to the centre. Taxi situation to/from Bank House is not great.

  • #11430

    As most of you seem to prefer staying in the centre I am minded to change the venue.

    I’ll send an update tomorrow once I’ve confirmed no one has booked a room at Bank House
