Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Oil Basin Brewhouse

This was another excellent stop on our tour of Worcester's best pubs and bars yesterday. As previous reviewers have said, this was bigger than most micropubs. There is seating on the pavement at the front, whilst we retreated to the upstairs room, where the kitchen is also visible.

The regular beer Wintrip Butchers Beastly Best is brewed by the owner. Those amongst our group that tried it enjoyed it. Guests were Fownes Korvaks Isolation, Gloucester Session IPA & Salopian Lemon Dream. I had the Korvaks Isolation, which was billed as a rice pudding porter. With Heck's Farmhouse Cider also on handpull, I thought the selection was varied and eclectic enough to suit all tastes.

I'm undecided about which pub was my favourite in Worcester, but this one is certainly up there.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Oil Basin Brewhouse

Perhaps more of a mini-pub than a micro one, because the front room and compact rear counter area are supplemented by further seating upstairs and some benches out front. Food (in the form of pizzas) available and background music playing. Four real ales - including Crash Ball (£3.50) and The Mermaid's Tale from Fownes - and a cider available on handpump.

Good beer guide 2020 entry. Micropub with a good pubby feel - some wooden church style furniture, roof beams, various paraphernalia.

Regulars hog the bar - standing all around it - so this makes it tricky to see whats on offer and get to the loos (currently complete with a sign saying no pooping in the gents!). I couldn't get close enough to the pump clip to see what Vanilla Stout I was drinking but it was damn fine.

Plenty of choice in Copenhagen Street - with a bottle shop and Belgian Cafe alongside.
