Short drive from Upton town centre. Menu provides good choice and is reasonable pub quality food. Landlady is a bit of a character and certainly livens things up. Service was good and prices average.

A delightful 17th Century pub with a great atmosphere, serving a range of real ales on hand pump (Wye Valley, Malvern Hills Brewery, Ledbury Real Ales and other guest breweries). A varied menu is on offer at both lunch and dinner time, serving locally sourced food, all freshly cooked. There is a large car park, lovely beer garden with a covered smoking area (called Woodbine Cottage!). Free camping and caravanning currently offered (pub facilities only). The pub is open plan inside with areas separated by beams and has a real fire in Autumn/Winter (or whenever cold!).
