#138 Ye Olde Seven Stars, Kidderminster, Worcestershire : 2008 to 2013
As reported previously, we've only ever stopped in Kidderminster twice despite passing through on the canal on many occasions.
Our first stop was on the evening of Monday 26th May 2008 and Ye Olde Seven Stars was one of the pubs we visited on out pub crawl around the town.
As usual, I don't remember too much about the inside as we only had one pint there.
On our second visit to Kidderminster, at lunchtime on Thursday 16th May 2013, we only went in one pub, but we did stroll around the town centre so I could get pictures of how the pubs had changed.
Externally Ye Olde Seven Stars has had a complete makeover.
In doing the background research for this post I've discovered that this is the oldest pub in Kidderminster and that I made a mistake in my blog entry about The Red Man (#127).
It was Ye Olde Seven Stars that allowed (in fact encouraged) people to eat their takeaway meals inside whilst enjoying their pint and, judging by the signage, they still do. The pub has its own website, but I'm not sure when it was last updated.
