Walter de Cantelupe

“I drink to make other people more interesting.” ― Ernest Hemingway

The Walter de Cantelupe Inn is situated in the village of Kempsey, just 4 miles from Worcester City centre on the A38. It is the perfect place for lunches, evening meals or a room for the night, has a large open log fire, plush comfortable furnishings, paved walled Garden – An Inn for all seasons!


A privately owned & run free house, The Walter de Cantelupe Inn, is understated in appearance yet embraces a soul brought to life by the Landlord & the staff. The house, partly dating back to the 17th Century, retains original features such as exposed beams & roaring log fire in the winter months. One of the bedrooms is in the oldest part of the Inn and is said to be haunted!


The food on offer combines both traditional pub dining as well as imaginative and exciting comtemporary creations all prepared in the pub’s own kitchen, using as much regional, seasonal and traditional produce as possible. Great emphasis is also placed on top-rated British cask conditioned ales. There are normally four hand-pulled beers available featuring at least one guest ale. The wine list is small but carefully chosen reflecting the knowledge and interest of the landlord. There is even wine from the local award winning vineyards.

“The Landlord Martin is the finest of hosts, whose attention to beer keeping, providing superb food and ensuring a great atmosphere are second to none. All this and great value, what more can you ask for in a wonderful period, intimate pub.”
