Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Imperial Tavern

Really fine old city-centre pub, given a new lease of life by Black Country Ales. Four different seating areas wrapping around the central servery: the main bar at the front, a smaller side section with an alcove opposite, a live music performance area - in entertaining open-mic use when I visited - on the far corner and a lounge at the back. Excellent selection of ten real ales - including a rare Worthington's White Shield in cask form (£3.60) amongst the six guests, plus four of the brewery's own beers - on the various handpumps plus nine boxed ciders.

Traditional pub not far from the train station. It seemed a bit quiet on my Friday afternoon visit with only 3 other customers in. The usual 3 house beers plus another 7 guests. I went for Saved By The Bell from Bespoke brewing which was fine. A lot of old photos of Worcester pubs on the walls. A decent pub.

This Black Country Ales pub consists of a long carpeted room in the shape of an unused staple. It's in a central location near Foregate Street station but was quiet on my Thursday afternoon visit but the whole city centre seemed fairly dead.
The ten hand pumps had the three regular BCA beers plus their seasonal English Summer. Sadly the other guests were all golden ales at around the 4% abv mark. There were numerous boxes of cider stacked behind the bar but being served in that way they would have been far too warm.
I went for the Wye Valley Butty Bach (£3.60) which was only OK.
Overall I found this one disappointing especially as it's in a city centre.
