King Charles II Pub (Worcester)

The King Charles II is the most historically significant of the Craddock’s Brewery pubs, as it was through this pub that the King himself is believed to escaped after losing the final battle of the English Civil War.

As Charles fled after defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651, the residents of New Street held off Cromwell's army so he could make his escape from the house.

Since then, the building has been a judge's residence, a furniture-makers, an antiques shop, and a restaurant, before becoming the home of Craddocks Ale in Worcester in 2013.

Today, King Charles House is known for its oak-clad walls, roaring fires and dungeon - not to mention its award-winning pies, eight real ales and local ciders.
