Update 01/10/2021 – The previous connection to Birmingham Brewery beers is no longer evident and the very nice “house” beer is now brewed by Green Duck from Stourbridge. On social media they are also promoting their “sister pub” at the Jenny Ring craft centre near Droitwich and are selling a number of different cans of craft beer. Opening hours are limited so check first on social media.

Coach and Horses, Harvington
Update 01/10/2021 – The pub has now been closed for the past couple of weeks as the latest Landlord, Pierre, moved out. We are trying to find out from the Pubco (Star Heineken) regarding future plans for this once Worcestershire CAMRA pub of the Year. It is currently listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).
Thatch Tavern, Honeybourne
Update 01/10/2021 – Has been registered again as an Asset of Community Value in order to maintain the status it first achieved five years ago. Whilst still being a Heineken owned property the lease was taken on by “The Honeybourne Pub Company” about three days before lockdown in November last year. In the interim a great deal of internal improvements have been made. Since reopening the pub has been seen to be serving Abbot Ale, Wye Valley Butty Bach and HPA with a fourth pull for another ale. They are open early for coffee and cake and all day for everything else.
Bridge Inn and Ferry, Offenham
Update 01/10/2021 – Opened again on the 21st June by Alistair who used to run the Royal Oak in Evesham. There is a lovely refurbished outside drinking and eating area by the side of the river Avon and on social media they stated that they are hoping to have 3 or 4 different real ales on offer. A recent visit by one of our members found that the beers available on that occasion were Brains Reverend James and Ludlow Gold. Plans are also believed to be in progress to reinstate the ferry across to Twyfords (the Village) country park.
