Must have the best pub garden in Leamington, good variety of ales with friendly staff. No food but this is a proper old fashioned pub. Enjoy

The 'Ville is what every local pub should be. Its warm and rustic character is undisturbed by sticky dining tables and garish food menus. If you are hungry though, you can complement the fine selection of ales with a trusty packet of crisps.
