Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just moved in around the corner!
Great little pub, with all the character of a local that you desire. Darts, scampi fries and a fine selection of real ales. The manager behind the bar was bubbly, informative and complimentary of her employer, rare these days! She was happy for a chat and was telling us about the history of the pub and how the current owner is proud to continue the tradition of a neighbourhood pub. We’re sad we didn’t meet him. On this occasion we didn’t try the food from the van outside, but the menu seemed to have something to offer for everyone, and it smelt fantastic as we left. The bar had a clipboard of what seemed to be a weekly newsletter, and the pub has a lot going on. It’s great to see a small pub doing all it can to keep going in the current climate, and we will be back for sure.

This is a funny little pub based in the ordinary backstreets of Leamington Spa. It has changed management but still retains an elderly clientele giving the old man pub vibe. But it is nice to see older people preventing loneliness as they all seem to be stalwart regulars. I am not sure if this would put some people off though as it seems like a dysfunctional famIly. It is a very small pub so covid concerns were on my mind because of the airborne virus and there is not much room. I think for regular punters who do not like change the pub has maintained it's previous vibe. I did not like the atmosphere of the pub personally but I do visit very rarely if I have to go. I am very surprised it survived Covid but the regulars must keep the profits up ha ha.

A lovely friendly pub run by two great lads, this has become a real asset to the neighbourhood since the management changed. Good selection of drinks at very reasonable prices. The Greek food van is pretty great also. Very dog friendly.

What a gem of a pub the Somerville is and always has been. It's largely unchanged despite some changes in management. Has a very genuine bar where punters still play darts! There is a small but very comfortable lounge at the back. A catering vehicle is invariably parked outside so hot food is readily available.

This is a great little local pub. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The cocktails and Greek food were excellent. We were on a short break holiday to Leamington and will definitely be back. The Summerville will be top of our list to revisit.

Old school vibe and the snug is lovely and cosy. Many traditional features make for an interesting atmosphere and the live music is excellent. Great selection of great beer too! Guinness is outstanding, highly recommended!
