Very nice site. Lovely welcome from Liz the owner. Good pub, with a nice atmosphere.

Easy walk into Upton on Severn, not much difference between walking the main road and cutting through the fields. Everyone on site seemed friendly.

Will definitely visit again.

An excellent site at bag of a lovely pub with great manager with great staff. Toilets and showers lovely and clean.

Only issue were some inconsiderate dog owners but it's understandable they can't be monitored all the time. Definitely go again soon.

Fees are good, £10 and £15 with hook up. Full marks.

We have just stayed at the Drum & Monkey for a few nights after reading their good reviews. Sorry to say we were not very impressed with site. Very uneven ground.

Grass had just been cut so the grass was every where, all through awning and in van. As for the toilet block, please take flip flops if you intend to use the showers, as hard plastic: what ever it was hurts the bottom of your feet.

Chemical waste area was very poor, it was in the hedge row, as was one of the drinking water taps. Nobody controlled their dogs either, all let loose to do what ever.

I stayed at this site over the bank holiday weekend.

Our little group of campers could corral nicely, without being ordered to be on specific pitches (ala caravan club stalag). Those of our group that needed hookup, got it. We were near to the 'new' toilet/shower block. I was paying £10/night for my tent, with free use of showers and wash-up area.

The camping area is at the rear of the pub, with easy access for me and my Outwell Fusion 300, up to Big Marks' american mansion on wheels and Guzzis' Airstream caravan.

The pub and site is run by one lady, so she isn't always there to give you warm welcome. However, the pub has great ales and cyder. They also do fantastic meals. Can't wait to go there again.

This site is a great one to stay at, Liz and her staff plus the locals gave all of us a very warm welcome on each visit to the pub. We were a group of three couples all in touring vans and we had a weeks stay.

The site was not crowded and we had a pleasant time exploring the area. We did see couples with children who also seemed to be enjoying the site.

The food served at the pub was great so good in fact we invited more friends to join us one evening for a meal, they are now spreading the word in their area.

Upton on Severn is interesting with more quaint establishments and nice walks along the river, so something for everyone's taste, we would certainly go back.

We booked this site last minute all other local sites were full. The site is behind the drum and monkey pub, easy to find from J 8 on the M5. The instruction board advises prospective campers to call at the pub before pitching, as the pub is only open 12-2. 30 and 6-11 campers need to arrive during these times.

There is a hard standing area behind a building or the open grass site with open views. Only the grass area has EHU. The grass is uneven and leveling blocks will be needed. The toilet block appears fairly new it is fairly clean and basic. The washing up sink is out in the open behind the toilet block. The 6 hook up points are around the edge of the grass area. The water, waste and elsan point are also at the edge of the grass area.

There is a small local road to one side of the field but road noise is not intrusive.

Upton on Severn is a short drive away with bus services to Tewksbury, Worcester and Malvern. There are two small supermarkets, lots of antique shops, riverside cafes and pubs. The site is also convenient for the three counties showground.

The pub serves a typical pub menu.

This was our fourth time visiting the drum and monkey. The new toilet block is a welcome addition, very clean, efficient lighting and background music.

The all grassed site is a little lumpy but well tended and we had no problems with our van. Liz the landlady is a star and the food etc in the pub is wonderful. The site is quiet, just 10 to 15 minute walk to the actual town.

I would definitely recommend this site nice clean and quiet. We are booking again for April and it will definitely not be our last visit this year.

This has to be one of the best of the best sites ever.

Toilets / Showers spotless. They even have clean fresh towels hanging up to dry yourself yes I have never seen this before. Also the heating and radio come on when you enter and water is nice and hot and to top it all the showers are free

The pub itself is also great and the food to die for. To be honest if your in the area and you go else where your a fool

Found this site in the Caravan Club 'New Sites' section. The site is lovely - a grassed flat field adjacent to the Drum and Monkey pub. The toilets and shower block were not finished but looked really nice and we were advised they should be ready within days. Beware there are a few lumps and bumps in the grass and care should be taken when siting your caravan.

The pub is a delightful traditional 'olde worlde' building, having been originally established in the 17th Century. The landlady and staff are really friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced.

The site is very close to the lovely town of Upton on Severn with its lovely shops, restaurants, etc. Worcester, Gloucester and Tewksbury are all within easy travelling distance and for those who enjoy walking the Malvern foothills are close by. We will definitely be staying here again.

This was our second visit to this site, first been in april for a rally and this time an over night stop before going to the malvern show.

The Landlady is really friendly and so are the staff. We had a warm welcome on both our visits and we were able to find our own pitch when we visited in August.

The site is a little uneven to say the least so take care when accessing the grassed area, don't be deceived by the plush look of the grass as it it hides the dips well!.

Unfortunately the shower block wasn't finished so cannot comment on those but the building looks good so lets hope the same can be said about the finish inside.

We paid £10 a night for hook up and we were informed it will be £15 a night when the toilet block is finished, hope to return when they are finished.

The food in the pub is excellent as we ate there on both visits and not over priced. If they have the pie's on the special they are really lovely all home made too. The also have a bitter called Butty Bach that we can recommend as when we were there for the rally they ran out on the friday night as everyone seemed to be drinking it.

All in all I would recommend this cl site and will definitely go back again.
