The Roebuck is a nice looking pub with a long frontage,it is situated on the nothern edge of Alcester.
Once inside there is a long oblong shaped room with the bar facing,the seating is normal tables and chairs and a few leather settees,the left side is for diners,this area had bench seating and normal tables and comfy looking chairs,there was also conservatory to the far left which was also set up for diners.
There were three real ales on the bar,we had a drink of Purity Gold which went down very well,the other beers were Purity Mad Goose and Dorothy Goodbodys Barrel of Laughs.
This is a decent enough pub to have a few drinks in,it also opens at 10am on a Saturday,ideal for an early drink if in Alcester.

An old early 18th century Inn on the edge of town, a bit of a walk from the town centre but 5 minutes in the car. The first things to catch the eye are the old urinals on the outside wall of the pub near the entrance – they now have a new use as flower pots. The pub was rather quiet and sedate on my visit. The interior is a good balance between dining and drinking areas. 2 Real Ales on pump – Websters & Old Speckled Hen. The main bar area is partly flag stoned, long and narrow with a couple of TV's, fruit machines, dart board and small dais at one end that is occasionally used for live jazz music. There is a real fire near bar where the regulars seem to congregate. Various jugs and pitchers hanging from ceiling and line the shelves. There are some interesting old pictures and the ubiquitous Guinness mirror. A small room leads off to the rear of pub. From the main bar there is an oak beamed restaurant and this in turn leads to a large modern conservatory, also used for dining. There are some benches out front for warmer days and 11 en-suite bedrooms are available if you cannot stagger home. Homely and welcoming but there just isn't any one particular thing that stands out as making it exceptional and it is probably better to visit on a busier evening.
