Around and about in Droitwich 2

The Castle was the most popular pub in town when our girls were teenagers. It has had a few changes since and is now basically a steak pub! We went there with the folks from the Acorn shop for a Christmas do and it was actully quite good. Ange and I both had a steak and were pleasantly surprised

Let's drink!

Mario did this good, Bill.
Bill Phillips: He was the ultimate bathroom tenor grin
Very peaceful here
Bill Phillips: Before opening time E!

Great shot, love the blue sky and the golden light here.
Bill Phillips: It helped that the pub really is that colour Lady P smile
It certainly looks like a most pleasant place Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is a lot better than I expected Richard

A long time since I have heard that song, Bill
Bill Phillips: Good old Mario Lanza, the ultimate bathroom tenor

You sound as if you were expecting the worse from the place
Bill Phillips: Like many pubs it has had its' ups and downs. So I wasn't expecting much but it is OK.

I'm not sure if I saw this pub - sunny Droitwich - wonderful!
Bill Phillips: We would have driven past it on our way into town Philine
I bet it's a knock-out of a place for all kinds of special occasions, Bill. WOW. I bet they'd love this for some of their advertising!
Bill Phillips: It got a like from the landlord on facebook!

The nosh must have been really good to honour them with a picture like this.

PS. these buildings seem to be straight and not so crooked as someone else is leading me to believe??
Bill Phillips: The crooked buildings are only the ones in the High Street Louis. This was well out of harm's way!

If I see signs about Sky Sports or BT Sports outside a pub I will normally drive on by. Glad to hear that this was better than expected; betetr to have high hopes but then to be disappointed. Good to hear the voice or Mario Lanza again.
Bill Phillips: A good general principle Alan.
Within walking distance becomes increasingly difficult for us here. Another 'local' closed down due to lack of trade. Fine photo with the sun.
Bill Phillips: We have got a proper pub within walking distance which I seldom go in these days. There are a couple in town which do a decent pint, which are walkable

Will have too give it a try when we come back up there Bill on our travels.
Bill Phillips: If you want no nonsense steak and a beer at a reasonable price then it is fine Peter
It looks a lovely spot. Sometimes the atmosphere is better than the food. Sometimes the best food is in a place that is not quite so beautiful.
Bill Phillips: It is a typical "chain pub" Mary. They are sometimes quite good.
another fine shot. the outward appearance does not say much about being a pub, the conventional or the steak type. but i like it as well as the environs, Bill
Bill Phillips: It isn't a bad building and you get used to the colour they have painted it.

You obviously researched and staked out this steak house
Bill Phillips: If it hadn't been for the fact that we went there with the people from the Acorns shop I probably still would not have been in there since it reincarnated as the flaming grill or whatever. Hadn't been in there for years
We seem to have more eatery style pubs round our way than normal pubs, this looks quite a nice one from the outside.
Bill Phillips: There are not many proper pubs left Brian.
The meeting place pubs of our youth have mostly gone now or changed beyond recognition, but those were the days.
Bill Phillips: I am afraid so John. People don't just go out for a drink like they used to.

There are not many pubs that do not offer food now Bill. Love the sky.
Bill Phillips: This is very true and most of those that don't are being boarded up at a very fast rate
Stunning capture Bill...
Bill Phillips: Thank you Ronky.
You did this pub proud, Bill. Nice of the landlord to like it on facebook.
Bill Phillips: It is a good job I wasn't rude about the place grin
