Worcester Road Newnham Bridge Tenbury Wells
near Ludlow Worcestershire
Open all day
The Peacock is Just East of Tenbury Wells, several miles west of the Newnham Bridge and the A443 to Droitwich.
Food is excellent and a bit pricey - this Inn makes most of it's money selling great food. They will serve you in the taproom if you insist, and that's where you will find the locals - ranging from ex-RAF Captains wearing wellies and monocoles to lads that work the hopfields and maybe do a bit of poaching on the side.
Beer is Tetley's and Ind Coope Burton.
The Peacock has a taproom and restaurant, with the taproom on the west/left side of the building, parts of which date back to the 14th Century. Had a coal fire but changed to wood in '97. Charming very low ceilings with original beams, barmaids give the lads a hard time if they talk Welsh at the bar.
Host Barry and barman Mike are very friendly.
Food served 7pm - 9:30 or so for dinner. People come from miles around to eat here.
Extremely friendly locals, but watch out for PC Williams on the A456!
Worth a Diversion. (David Luckhardt)
