4. The Old Rectifying House

Lastly, if you love having a wide selection of drinks, including older cocktails that are rare to find nowadays, then this is the place for you.
5. The King Charles House
The King Charles House is not just one of those old buildings to visit but it is definitely a must-try. The inn was originally built in 1577 and most of the features of the old building remain, like the carved wood paneling, exposed beams, and even an underground jail cell. Its name came from the visit of King Charles while he lost the Battle of Worcester. Though the building has been renovated, it is still that traditional English pub. Their specialty is pie and mash, with tons of versions to choose from.
