Conserving the tradition of fine old English country pubs, Nostalgia Inns offer the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of times gone by.
Steeped in history with open fires and rustic interiors, Nostalgia Inns pubs serve excellent home-cooked food, freshly prepared from local produce, in well equipped, modern kitchens.
Nostalgia Inns began at our sister Pub the Plough Inn Far Forest when in 2002 we purchased our first venue with a small cash flow and a lot of ambition. In October 2002 we introduced our Carvery which created a lot of negativity with the locals as the saying goes ‘people don’t like change’ the concept in which we have thirty five years of experience in the trade, was an instant success at the Plough as the carvery started to outgrow the pub so we made vast modifications to the site, and doubled the size of the kitchens, bars and restaurant area by 2004 the Plough had doubled in size and tripled in turnover. But it didn’t stop here as our customer base kept growing producing up to 600 meals every Sunday, with the recommendation from our Bank manager we searched for our second venue and we acquired the Punchbowl in June 2005 to expand the business.
Nostalgia Inns is a family run business to the truest sense of the word, now owning two pubs in the Worcestershire and Shropshire counties. As our parents continue to prosper at the Plough we continue the success as the third generation in the trade at Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn.
Owner Adam Giles and his two sons Jake & Zach and their staff will be pleased to see old and new friends, and have the pleasure of supplying them with our fine Beers, Real Ales, Best Wines, Premium Spirits and cocktails.
A high standard of cellar-keeping guarantees the quality of our ales and during the summer months, a variety of traditional guest beers is available.
As Publican Awards Finalists with good parking and social events nights, you can be sure at Nostalgia Inns, a warm welcome awaits.
AGA Ambassadors – The Next Generation Carvery for the UK. The concept of installing an AGA(™) to serve the thousands of customers who pass through the Punch Bowl Inn every year was created by owner Adam Giles nearly ten years ago, and has now become reality – serving from our ‘Total Control AGA’ means we can adjust how and when to serve from our AGA, resulting in the optimum flavours, and efficiencies from our equipment. Come and see us and experience the Next Generation Carveries (™)
