You won't find this pub by accident. In a churchyard just north of Worcester you have to know where this is. It's worth seeking out though. Really friendly staff, excellent beer, a fantastic old building and a unique location. Go there!

I have been a regular here for longer than is healthy! Always a nice welcome and the best ham egg and chips in the world! Duck eggs sometimes too. A lovely Landlady that genuinely cares about her customers. A perfect example of church/pub symbiosis!

First time back in the mug after being out of the area for a while. Greeted by perfect ales, warming fire and friendly manager. Couldn’t ask for more, especially in such a authentic setting. Will make a point of stopping by more often.

A great country pub easily reached from Worcester with a friendly crowd of locals and welcoming team behind the bar. Excellent real ale selection.

Again another fantastic old English pub, like going back to another era, really peaceful set in the grounds of the church, inside is lovely and unspoilt, outside beer garden is perfect, another pub I wish I lived next door to!

Just love the Mug for drinks with friends. Summer evenings listening to the church bells in the garden or cosy evenings in the bar with a roaring fire. Pork pies usually keep us going but would be great if they offered other evening bar snacks.

We had a nice walk to this fascinating old pub. Lovely building, and nice outside seating area. On a personal level I was disappointed that the only cider on draught was fizzy.

This is easily one of the best pubs ive been to. Full of character, friendly locals and peace and quiet with cracking views to the rear beer garden. Great selection of drinks too.
