A stunning old pub set in the churchyard of Claines church. Well worth a visit if you're ever in Worcester, where a warm welcome is assured, especially in the winter when the open fire is full flow 👌👌

A remarkable building and setting. Drinks not the cheapest, but the beer is kept perfectly and the feel of the place is truly spectacular. Ham, egg and chips is perfect and whilst the menu is small is doesn't matter. Only criticism is that the staff could be friendlier. They don't take cards but you need to get over that! It's... More

Be careful who you tell, or else everybody will want to go. Don't expect music, flashing machines, TVs, fancy meals, table cloths and children's play areas. Do expect perfectly kept beer, slightly wonky tables, food of a decent standard that is similar to the last time you went, a quirkiness that makes you smile and the kind of conversation that...

Great beer, great location, great food. Would it be too much to ask the landlord to smile at his guests?

Been a few times but this was the first time for lunch. Hiding from the noise of local building work we dived in for a traditional pub lunch. Sometimes you just want a simple lunch, served well, with good beer and honest company. This is the place. Porkpie, bread, salad anda bowl of chips, washed down with good beer. Thinking... More

Food fantastic. Beers as always very good. Booked as a group of friend for a special Christmas meal. Could not have been better. Judith the landlady is great and the meal she provided was outstanding. As a regular visitor definitely biased but honestly could not have had a better welcome, food or atmosphere. Thanks to all the staff who made... More

The Mug House is a great traditional pub that also serves excellent lunchtime meals (as opposed to a restaurant that happens to sell beer!) It is perfectly charming and unique, old fashioned, and rustic. The beer is great and so is the food. I had the Oxford Gold but they also have some interesting guest ales too. The lunch menu...

Visited Mug House this lunchtime after recommendation from a friend...will not go out of our way to return. Found the staff rather sully and made no attempt to make potential new customers welcome. I am sure managers of other pubs locally are rubbing their hands with glee.
