Traditional British pubs and deep mid-winter go together like Steak and Ale pie. Many pubs have disappeared in recent times but there are still plenty of black and white pubs offering boltholes for a weekend away. The Swan at Upton upon Severn and The Anchor Inn Welland are just two of those near enough to the Malvern Hills to enjoy a bracing walk before that lunchtime pint and a hearty lunch.
If you intend staying over for a few days and intend visiting The Malvern Theatres both places provide extremely comfortable rooms and a wide choice on the menu.
If you are intending to visit Malvern during the week then take a 90 minute tour of the Morgan Motor Car factory (Bookings advisable)
