Grab a bite in one of these celebrated restaurants!
It might have taken a while for the city to catch up with the rest of the UK, but there are finally some truly fantastic places to eat at in Worcester.
Whether you’re looking to get down and dirty with a big burger, or you’re eager to try something completely new you’re sure to find the right restaurant for your next special occasion.
We’ve had an ask around on the High Street to see what restaurants the people of Worcester are getting behind:
Friar Street Kitchen
The aptly named Friar Street Kitchen (clue: it’s on Friar Street!) hasn’t been open for two years yet it’s already the toast of the town! FSK is only small, but what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in big flavours and locally sourced grub. The owners come from farming backgrounds, so they understand better than anyone the importance of sourcing good-quality food. The focus on the menu is very much to a carnivores taste, with their ‘Summer Benches’ proving particularly popular with the punters.
“I love coming to FSK on a weekday night, the service is always so good and the food is to die for: its definitely become one of my favourite places to eat in the city.” – Janet, 23
Thai on 7evern in Worcester
Opened in 2015, Thai on 7evern is the sister restaurant of another Thai enterprise in neighbouring Hereford. Goong and her team have worked tirelessly to provide the same warm welcome and authentic taste that visitors to their country have come to expect and they’ve become a roaring success in the process. There’s everything on the menu that you’d expect here: red curries, green curries and pad thai, but there’s also a few interesting specialities like their Weeping Tiger and Nu Pad Namman Hoi.
“When I came back from Thailand all I wanted was more of that delicious food, so I was so happy to find this place – it takes me right back there every time!” – James, 34
The Olive Branch
Nothing sets the scene better for family gathering or party than a huge table of tapas and The Olive Branch is the place to get it in Worcester. This successful Mediterranean joint serves up a wide array of classic tapas plates in addition to offering up some great offers throughout the week. From Monday to Friday customers can buy a sharing board with a carafe of wine for £25, or try 5 tapas dishes for £25. The big space accommodates large parties making this a great option for celebrations too.
“This is my go to tapas place, it’s perfect for a light lunch during the day or a long, relaxed evening of dining.” – Oliver, 54
The Old Rectifying House
Like many of the buildings in Worester The Old Rectifying House comes complete with its own unique history. Two centuries ago the building was used to distil booze, but today it sticks to serving it with a selection of delicious, refined pub grub. In this peaceful historical setting you can enjoy a number of carefully crafted meals, from Moules Marinier to Roast Wood Pigeon all whilst being treated to excellent service.
“I love going to The Old Rec on a weekend, their food is always excellent and they do fab cocktails.” – Sandra, 42
