Worcester's Ancient Inns

Only the Old Talbot in College Street, and the Cardinal's Hat in Friar Street, remain of Worcester's medieval inns; with the Star in Foregate Street, and the Crown in Broad Street, surviving from the 16th and 17th centuries. But records survive of others. In, or near St.Peter's parish it was to be expected that there would be inns using the Cross Keys, the symbol of St Peter. In fact, there were three inns of that name in earlier times.
