Vibrant atmosphere in interestingly converted riverside warehouse with tempting all-day food

In summer, the massive red-brick frontage of this 18th-c former warehouse looks fetching, with seats and tables under the lovely hanging baskets. Once inside, it's pretty impressive with spacious open-plan rooms and long runs of big arched windows looking across the broad River Severn at the back. But despite its size the pub has a personal feel, helped by the eclectic décor, furniture layout and cheerful bustle. A mix of wood tables and chairs are grouped on stripped-wood floors, the huge brick walls display floor-to-ceiling books or masses of old prints mounted edge-to-edge, and there's a grand stone fireplace at one end. Colonial-style fans whirr away on the ceilings, which are supported by green-painted columns, and small wall-mounted glass cabinets display smokers' pipes. Phoenix Brunning & Price Original, Salopian Oracle and Three Tuns XXX on handpump plus guests from breweries such as Hobsons, Purple Moose, Stonehouse and Woods, 19 wines by the glass, 100 malt whiskies, 84 gins, lots of rums and vodkas, a variety of brandies and a farm cider. The pub doesn't have its own car park, but there are plenty of parking places nearby. Dogs are welcome except after 7pm on Friday and Saturday evenings.
