Opened in June 1995, the brewpub is located on the side of the river Avon at Pershore Lock and is Pershore’s only truly independent Free House. The interior has a traditional feel to it and there’s a small central bar with two small rooms either side. Accessed from one of the side rooms is the Ale Room Brasserie which offers a variety of meals. It appeared to be busy when I visited on a Sunday lunchtime.
To the rear of the pub is the brewery. I didn’t get to see this but I believe you are welcome to view it. Outside is a very large beer garden which stretches all the way down to the River Avon.
The on-site brewpub produces 3 different real ales all year round – Brandysnapper (4%), Whistling Joe (3.6%) and John Baker’s Original (4.8%). They also produce ‘Ale Mary’ on occasions. The 3.6% Whistling Joe was a reasonable £2.60 a pint.
As well as their own beers they serve 2 guest ales. When I visited in July, 2010 the two guests were from Newmans in Caerphilly and the Northumberland Brewery. They also sold Cheddar Valley cider.
