Real Ale, Cider and Perry trail

To help you find your way around the best the City has to offer, Worcester CAMRA has put together a tour guide. It doesn’t cover every good pub in the City, because there’s just too many, so we’ve been selective and presented the very best that are close enough to the central buses and train stations to make a nice tour. Please enjoy it responsibly.

Follow this trail guide to find some great pubs serving great Mild Ale. All the pubs listed here will be serving Mild on Saturday. For some this is a regular occurrence, but for most it is a special occasion and there’s a promise of some interesting beers to be tried.
