Further Afield

Heading south of Aston Cantlow, the  Golden Cross in Ardens Grafton is worth a visit if only for the views towards the Cotswolds and Malvern Hills, although the food is excellent. Also in that direction are the Blue Boar   in Temple Grafton, The Stag at Redhill, and several pubs in Alcester.

There is a plethora of choice in Stratford, including the famous Dirty Duck and Stratford’s oldest pub The Garrick. Another old Stratford pub The Windmill is shown here located in Church Street, near the Old Town.

The local Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, Shakespeare CAMRA web site is a good place to visit to find out more about the local pubs.
