Warwick Castle and Warwick train station are also only 2 minutes walk away.Enjoy great food, real ales and fabulous hospitality. With log fires, slate floors and traditional wooden beams there is an relaxed atmosphere and friendly service is always assured. Recline by the open fire with a glass of your favourite tipple in Winter or during the Summer months soak up the sun in our glorious, walled rear garden - the best beer garden in Warwick - and dine al fresco. Please note that St Nicholas Park car park has direct access into our rear garden.

“Great traditional English pub.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Took the family here for a sunday lunch. Great welcome by the staff, lovely range of beers and if the weathers good they have a huge garden out the back. Easy parking - great big public car park and follow the rear path into the garden. Lunch was very tasty and served promptly. Its such a pleasure to walk into a pub which still has traditional values, good beer, polite staff and good wholesome grub! Well done to Glenn and his staff.

“Great Beer and Beer Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

This Pub has a lovely beer garden which is open to children and dogs which makes it a really nice place to go on a sunny afternoon/evening and busy. We stopped off for some beer and were impressed by the knowledge of the barman who recommended the 'Proper Job' which was truly special having seen other customers eating we decided to try out the standard burger which was really meaty, satisfying and well presented.

“Real pub with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

I often visit this pub at lunch as it's the only one within walking distance. The food always looks very nice so decided to go with my boyfriend and parents for Sunday lunch. Sadly their chef was off but they were still serving their burger menu. When we got there they did say they had tried to ring to tell me but hadn't been able to get hold of me. The burger menu looked great so it wasn't a problem.

We were pleasantly surprised with the choice on this menu, it was not just your average beef burgers there was also kangaroo and venison and a 'burger workshop' where you could make your own burger with whatever toppings you wanted. There was also a good selection of real ales for my dad.

The only let down was the service as it was a little slow and they forgot one of our drinks orders despite there being 4 staff on and the pub wasn't hugely busy. It did seem that at least one member of staff was new but even so the service should have been better.

Will definitely be visiting again though. The food was great and they have a lovely garden out the back for the summer.

Popped into this lovely looking little pub on a sunny day only to find the most amazing garden !! What a find.
They were promoting a new menu specialising in homemade gourmet burgers. They were amazing !!
I had the warwickshire xx and my partner had aThe Bison. Simply delicious .
I would nightly recommend this friendly pub to anyone. Great for families with the biggest garden I've seen!!
Brilliant host in a chap named Glenn. Couldn't have been more helpful.
