A NEW brewery coming to Worcester city centre is set to bring up to 25 new jobs.

Davenports Brewery is moving into the former Worcester Steak 'n' Grill House in the Cornmarket.

The venue has shared that 25 jobs will be created at the new location, with a refurbishment in place which could take several months.

Ian Robinson, finance director for Davenport's Brewery, said: "We boast a strong portfolio of branded pubs which we are expanding with some key locations, to include this prime site in Worcester.

"A major overhaul of the venue is required to bring it in line with Davenports branding and styling, and to ensure it pleases the valued cliental we hope to attract.

"Worcester is such a fabulous, proud city, so the name will have to live up to the very high standards set by the area, and its residents.”

As of yet, Davenports haven not disclosed what the pub will be called.

The location has posters on doors promoting the takeover and a message saying "see you soon".

The venue previously opened as Francesca's in November 2019 and before that was called the Maltster, Bar 12 and the Slug and Lettuce.

It was listed for sale on March 2 2021.

The business also owns and operates hotels, nightclubs and event venues around the West Midlands region.

The Brewery was established in Birmingham in 1829, with Davenports' branded beer sold through online retailers and across pubs in the West Midlands.

Some of Davenports' pubs include The Elms in Shareshill, The Port House in Stourport, The Queen's Head in Birmingham and The Coach House in Stratford.

The new pub is one of many new businesses coming to the city centre.

A new Korean restaurant, called Grounded Kitchen, is coming to Foregate Street and a new Bubble tea cafe, called Mooboo, is coming to the High Street.

Worcester will also see a new Darts Venue, The Dart Side, and a new mini golf venue, Mr Mulligan's, in the near future as well. 

The location has yet to confirm an opening date or a date of when the refurbishment first begins.
