Worcester is a lovely city, there are many small independent shops with a balanced measure of the larger chains, a 'High Street' precinct where traffic is severely restricted and a Cathedral of significant structure. It also boasts a canal, (Worcester and Birmingham) a river (The Severn) and a racecourse.
After some shopping we planned to go in the Pig and Drum for lunch but found it was closed! Shock Horror! So we went in the Horn and Trumpet instead. Oh! Dear, we sat right at the back and just through some nearby doors were the smokers. And every time someone opened the door the smoke blew in so we moved to the far end near the entrance.
I had a pint of Hob Goblin and Lin had a Bacardi and Coke. Oh! Dear, the ale was too cold and tasted brackish and I didn't drink it all, and the menu didn't look inspiring either so we left and bought fish and chips on the way back to the boat.
