With well over 500 establishments to choose from, in this quintessentially English county with its centuries-old traditions of hop-growing, cider-making and brewing, selecting sixty of Worcestershire's historic pubs for special mention was never going to be an easy task. Included here are prime examples of riverside pubs - the famous Severn 'mug houses' - wayside inns, canal and railway pubs, and home-brew pubs, as well as the mainstay of every community, the local. Large or small, plain or plush, town or hamlet, half-timbered, stone or brick, each establishment is unique in its own very special way. All have been visited and revisited, and are fully recommended to anyone in search of good beer, cider and food, a great atmosphere, a slice of Worcestershire history - and the odd quirk, curiosity, witch and ghost or two.
