#151 The Wheatsheaf, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire : 1997 to 2013
It's back to Stourport-on-Severn for yet another pub that town has to offer. Our first visit to The Wheatsheaf was on the evening of Tuesday 27th May 1997.
Back then it was a Banks's pub that wasn't particularly memorable, but Stourport is about quantity, not necessarily quality! (That's not a bad thing in my book!!)
We didn't go back there until the lunchtime of Tuesday 27th May 2008 discovering that it'd had quite a makeover.
It was now branded as a Marston's pub with a more contemporary 'feel' to the outside. Inside it was no more memorable than before.
And finally we move on to the evening of Thursday 16th May 2013, when we'd been stranded in Storport because the River Severn was flowing at least 2 metres above safe levels!
Seemingly unchanged externally apart from the hanging baskets and the signs (from Marston's) saying 'Make it a success' and 'Retail Opportunity...Call 0844.....' We didn't venture inside as there were many more pubs to potentially visit...and we did pop into a few!
