There are certain things one often expects from a tasteful British pub: an old building in a peaceful setting, a cosy space containing booths, bar stools or big group tables, probably a pool table, plenty of quality ales and a great wider drinks selection. The Hampstall Inn in Astley Burf delivers on all those expectations, but it also boasts a few features not the norm for a British bar and restaurant. For one, it has a spacious conservatory opening onto an outdoor terrace area and directly onto the River Severn, a blissful setting no pub in Stourport-on-Severn could match. Then there’s the food, which goes well beyond the British classics (including homemade steak and ale pie, jacket potatoes, lambs liver and bacon, sticky toffee pudding and a Sunday roast carvery) to some intriguing dishes like sliced gala melon with raspberry coulis, a vegetarian take on beef wellington (mushroom, cranberry and brie) or a zingy Cajun chicken burger.
Very good location by the river. Friendly staff and excellent Sunday lunch. We are frequent visitors and look forward to their carveries. Very efficient service and never a proboem.
Very friendly atmosphere and excellent carvery. Booked a table and everything was ready on arrival. Would definitely recommend the carvery. Looking forward to the next visit.
Good value , meat cooked well and reasonable selection of vegetables. Not the best in the area, but above average. Pub itself is looking a little tired and lacking atmosphere.
