This pub is just 10 yards from the Three Tuns on the same side of the street and has a large single room that is rather strangely decorated. At the rear of the room, by the toilets, they have covered the low ceiling beams with old cigarette packets?!
Odd is not the word. I know mugs and plates are boring, but this is just plain weird. Most of the room is exposed brickwork and heavy carpets adorn the floor.
The Royal Oak is open all day and serves food to match - just traditional pub grub at average prices. there is narrow access to the bar area as it appears to be in what must have been a hallway when the pub was a house. Hence disabled access can be had, but at a squeeze.
Parking is also difficult as it is on the main Alcester shopping street. Music is provided by a jukebox and fruit machines and a nice touch is that the toilets are carpeted (but for how long?). Beer on at the time was only Wadworths, but a pint of 6X went down well, if a little too cool. No accommodation, but try the Swan Hotel
Swan Hotel 70-yards from the Three Tuns at the bottom of the High Street. This is a two-roomed pub (one large front room, one entrance hall, come bar), full of little farm implements and 'odd' objects. It serves Highgate Saddlers as its only concession to good taste. The Swan Hotel does accommodation in the price range £40 - £55 for a double en-suite.
None as yet.
