Reviewed 24 August 2013

I have been visiting this establishment since 1989 and it has always been a fascination to me. The place is designed to be part of the Severn Valley Railway experience, so just like the station and locomotives are a throw back to the 1940's so is this pub.

During the daytime, there is a restaurant just off the bar, but during the evenings it is just crisps, nuts and cobs and of course REAL ALE but no TV, jukebox or fruit machine.

Generally, there are about 5 cask ales and a couple of keg beers, for those without the sophisticated palate, available with Batham's being a regular product; local ciders are also available. With the resurgence of micro-breweries being fashionable once again this pub gets it about right.

It is nice to sip your ale and view the station platform, bringing back memories of steam travel. During July each year, the area takes on the guise of the Blitz, with windows being taped up and passengers dressing in 1940's costumes over two weekends.

For me, the only drawback is its proximity to the Kidderminster Harriers football stadium which inevitably means noisy footie fans packing the place on match days.
