Worst Wetherspoons near Worcester

The Crown

Tripadvisor rating: 3/5

Location: Crown Passage, Worcester, WR1 3LL

One reviewer wrote: “We've visited a number of Wetherspoons over the years and have one nearer our home in Malvern. We've always found them cheap and cheerful with good food and service at very reasonable prices. Sadly, this restaurant falls far below that standard, it was dirty, had run out of many of the basics like most condiments and the deep fried food was really greasy as no care had been taken in its preparation. We won't be back...”

The Foley Arms Hotel – JD Wetherspoon Pub

Tripadvisor rating: 3.5/5

Location: 14 Worcester Road, Great Malvern, WR14 4QS

One reviewer wrote: “Easily the worst wetherspoons I've been too. Always understaffed and the customer service was awful today. Absolutely appalling and unwelcoming. Food took over an hour to arrive and we had to ask twice where it was only eventually to be told they'd sold out of some of the stuff we ordered and no one had told us. No apology given. Lots of messy tables and about 6 chips on each portion. Never again!”

The Golden Cross Hotel

Tripadvisor rating: 3.5/5

Location: 20 High Street, Bromsgrove, B61 8HH

One reviewer wrote: “The food is very poor, not properly cooked, cold and we waited 1:30+ minutes for it to arrive, poor.”
