Quinno _ left this review about The Paul Pry

Has continued to have a turbulent existence, with various people trying and failing to make a go of it. The latest lot are having a good stab and were running a tidy pub which had a decent number of customers in on Saturday night (but not as many as it really needs, I suspect). The wonderful front bar remains, but this time we sat in the newly decorated rear room which has been done really well and complements the overall feel of the pub, with a restrained ‘modern Edwardian’ feel - green and white paint, a feature fireplace, moulded ceiling, some old oil painting portraits and a hammond organ. Forgot to note the ale line-up, my notes simply say ‘Pershore, NBSS 3’ so I’ll leave it there. Hope it keeps going.

April 2014
A CAMRA listed heritage pub that has had a chequered recent history but is now re-opened and appears to be going in the right direction. Two rooms, accessed via a lovely tiled lobby area. The front room is the star, triangular in shape with a beautiful solid wood bar and mirrored back, carpeted and with green fabric banquette seating. Light and airy in here with the large etched windows catching much of the early afternoon sunshine. There’s an old fireplace though it didn't look to be in use and may well have been coal effect, which is a shame. There was a private function in the rear room, so didn’t get a proper look-round though from what I could see it was nicely kitted out though less opulent. Talking of opulent, the tiling in gents fits that description. Four pumps featuring ales from Ludlow, Gloucester and Little Ale Cart breweries, plus a proper cider (from an independent producer I forgot to note). My half was cheap at £1.35 and came out well. Selection of daily papers were available. All-in-all this was a really good stop and is near the top of my list for revisit next time. Rated 8

Called in on Saturday as this bar was one of the 12 hosting a pub beer festival. Swan Black Swan, Dark Star Pale Ale, Holdens Golden Glow and Teme Valley Paul Pry on offer. We enjoyed the Swan beer.

Nice wedge shaped pub of heritage status including a stunningly tiled entrance corridor. Two rooms, the left hand room appears to be for dining or functions, on the right is the drinking bar featuring an ornate dark wood back bar. on the bar itself are four handpumps, featuring on my visit Salopian Dr Picc, Animal London Porter, and Paul Pry(house Beer), brewed by Teme Valley plus Lilly The Pink Cider on the fourth handle. The former beer was drinkable but not in the best condition. Lackluster beer aside a very nice pub.
