In Malvern for a long weekend. Started at the top of the hill trying several pubs, this was the last, bar, on our way back to our weekend stay.
Cracking night, watching Miss Pearl and the Rough Diamonds (local band, catch them if you can) - full of friendly locals, visitors to that evenings performance at the local Theatre and amazing bar staff - Go.
Late Friday evening Jeremy (manager) booked us a window seat for Sunday lunch, in the dog friendly bar area. Thinking we were all a bit worse for wear on the Friday, pleasantly surprised to find our table reserved, and a warm welcome back!
£7.95 for roast beef and all the trimmings? Can't go wrong - perfect and generous. My partner had the steak and merlot pie with all the trimmings that would come with the roast, just ask!
The hotel itself is undergoing some refurbishment, according to my partner the ladies toilet, which has just been finished, is lovely (if that's your thing re impressions of establishments, etc) and at the time of writing the roof is being re-tiled - haven't stayed here, but the warm welcome is sufficient enough for me to conclude that you would have a great stay, and the place is busy!
More places could learn how a pleasant, friendly, efficient staff go a long long way to creating good impressions.
I recommend, and look forward to coming back.
