Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Crown (JD Wetherspoon)

Impressive façade, with the main part of the 'spoons to be found on the right-hand side of the Crown Passage and the hotel entrance opposite the main doors. Large, elongated main bar, with another smaller one upstairs (not visited). Relatively light decor. Also has a few outdoor tables at the back. Thankfully the number of handpumps has doubled since my previous visit in 2014, and with 11 of 12 in operation, the choice of real ale was much better too so rating increased accordingly.

Graham Coombs left this review about The Crown (JD Wetherspoon)

Strange conversion of half an old hotel, with the opposite side of the old coaching yard given over to shops. The result is a very long and rambling interior, entering through the front room (or the yard) with the bar in the middle. An upstairs room features a small keg-only bar, open only at busy times. The bland furnishings and predominance of shoppers do not lend much atmosphere and the service was not great, but otherwise just another Spoons.

This is a long narrow city centre Spoons that was busy with mostly shoppers on my Monday lunchtime visit. It extends back a long way into the building. It dates back to 2004 and will be closed for a week in August to carry out a refurbishment.
I hope that refurbishment will include some extra hand pumps as six is a pathetic number for a Spoons this size.
On my visit three were taken up with Ruddles & Abbot, Vale Gravitas had gone off, leaving just a Locale Prescott Chequered Flag or an International beer from about six weeks ago Adnam's Sixpoint Make It Rain. I went for the Chequered Flag which was in reasonable condition and was £2.20 discounted to £1.99 on Cheapskate Monday.
I thought this Spoons was a complete waste of time and would only return if the refurbishment saw an improvement in the beers available. The one by the railway station is miles better than this.

Formerly a Lloyds No.1 but now seemingly a usual JDW during my late morning visit. Claims C16th heritage and the long, rambling interior backs it up a little. There are two carpeted seating 'ends' which are both quite bright and airy (the rear has exposed brickwork walls, the front has large gaudy high-backed banquettes). Upstairs room light and bright but closed. Some pleasant canopied outside seating down the passageway entrance. Six pumps so not a vast selection but they all looked operational; my US collaboration ale (Sir Ruan) was a little cold but otherwise in excellent shape. Usual Spoons clientèle with a noticeable slant towards mums and pushchairs. Quite impressed with this one and I preferred it to the Postal Order as a venue.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Crown (JD Wetherspoon)

A Wetherspoons during the day and Lloyds in the evening. This is a long and narrow pub, where you wonder were it ends, as it does go back a very long way. Six handpumps on our visit, the Hawkshead Cumdrian Hop was in good shape.

One of two JDWs in Worcester city center. Entering from the pedestrianised area it goes a long way back,with two minor ramps provided for wheelchairs. The long bar is centrally located,seating varies from sofas ,high stools to tables and chairs. This place is always busy with all sorts people of all age groups but you can normaly find a seat somewhere. Good choice of ales and usual lagers with food that arrives promptly. A good example of what JDWs do.
