The Baiting House is a friendly country inn in beautiful countryside close to Worcester. We serve fresh, seasonal food and have a great selection of local ales, ciders and a great wine list.
The focal point of village life for well over a century, the Baiting House was traditionally where drovers and waggoners climbing the hill with their horses would stop for “bait” (the local word for food, or a small snack). The earliest census records go back to 1840, when a wheelwright called Peregrine Perkins occupied the property and had a useful sideline as a beer maker.
The Baiting House now offers something for everyone – an excellent selection of local cask ales and ciders from famous Herefordshire orchards, fine wines and a restaurant offering fresh local ingredients cooked beautifully by their head chef Charles. The Baiting House also offers 6 luxury en-suite bedrooms, with comfy beds, Egyptian cotton bed linens, flat screen TVs and power showers.
A “proper” country pub, welcoming and cosy in winter but also with a beautiful terrace and gardens to enjoy during the spring and summer months.. The daily specials and creative dining menus offer dishes using fresh, award winning local and seasonal produce, from light lunches, Baiting House pub classics to hearty main courses.
The Baiting House offers its guests two bars, a snug area, a lovely cosy restaurant with 40 covers and a sunny (depending on the weather) patio on which to enjoy an afternoon pint or glass of something cold or an al fresco meal. In addition we have our Clubhouse, which offers darts, cribbage and two large screens showing sports throughout the week. The Clubhouse can also offer private dining or meeting facilities for shoot breakfasts or dinners, private clubs and societies and for private parties.
