The Throckmorton Arms
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Coughton Hill , Coughton, Nr. Alcester, B49 5HX
Just a stone's throw from historic Coughton Court - seat of the famed Throckmorton family and now treasure of the National Trust - this popular inn lies halfway between Studley and Alcester, within easy reach of Birmingham Airport and the NEC. It's well frequented by walkers due to its rural location and numerous nearby public footpaths. Old-fashioned beams, a large open fire and comfortable sofas lend a snug feel to this traditional establishment, which also boasts a spacious dining area, patio garden and ten very well-equipped en-suite bedrooms. The Throckmorton Arms often plays host to live music events and is also a convenient location in which to hold business meetings, with freshly ground coffee readily available, as well as free Wi-Fi. Lunchtimes see a range of sandwiches, salads and pub favourites on offer, with great steaks and locally sourced specials making up the evening menu. Accompanied by something from the selection of real ales and fine wines, your candlelit dinner might involve a serving of Throckmorton paté to start, complemented by balsamic red onions and focaccia crostini, before a main of grilled calf's liver, creamed potatoes, buttered cabbage, pancetta and red wine sauce - all at an affordable price. What's more, with full English breakfasts available at the weekend, you can pop in to fuel up before going about your day.
