user reviews of the Cask and Bottle, Leamington Spa

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Been here a couple of times and it's really a locals pub - felt quite unwelcome on both visits. The toilets leave nothing to the imagination if you like peeing right next to another bloke with no divide between the trough. Oh and I nearly fell off one of their infested stools when the barman announced that it was 5.50 for two diet cokes! Joke.

I've been going here for years and love it. The food is OK, curry on Tuesdays is good, sunday lunch even better. The beer is very well kept, especially the guiness.
If you like your rugby, then this is your spiritual home! Where else could you fill a pub to the rafters at 6 Nations time with all nationalities represented.
I've never seen any trouble in there - but that's probably because most people are scared of Wranga (the landlord) but he can take the banter as well as dish it out!!
It's not in the poshest part of town - but in my opinion that adds to the charm. There's a wide cross section of customers, all with a common interest. Beer. This is beer pub.

Visited on Sunday night. Beer good and fair selection. Yes would return but would always go for the Sommerville just around the corner.

Quite a friendly place with pretty standard Pubco beer range. Reasonable standard, drinkable, its worth a look if you are over that way and certainly a cut above many Leamington boozers. Knocked through and soulless though.

In fact, there are very few passable pubs in Leamington. This is one of them. The beer is usually rather mundane and sparklered as well, but seems to be well kept. Worth stopping in at, especially at 6 Nations time.

Can understand why this place gets mixed reviews. Make you own mind up. I liked it. Good beer, Friendly staff/customers. Had that warmth a local pub should.

The are a lot of real good pubs in Leamington Spa. They have to be good because the always another option.

'Cask and Bottle' has a lovely warm atmosphere got talking to the locals and stayed far to long. It is nice for an outsider to be made so welcome! My Beer was beautifully served. The chap behind the bar know what he was doing and how to serve proper beer.

I rated this place as 7. In terms of the rest it is a really nice all round pub.

No idea what this is doing with 30 users scoring but not review in two and a half years.

Its an identikit chain pub no different from 1000 others. It was well worth 7.5 points when it was the Greyhound but the refurb - in fact complete wanton destruction - negated that. The Somerville is orders of magnitude better.

Totally changed from when Derrick Judd ran it. Was called the Greyhound then. Customers still very friendly and serves great ale.

Cask challenge has been devalued due to being far too easy. Otherwise not a bad pub.

This is a really good pub when it doesn't have sport on television since that completely dominates an otherwise nice atmosphere, good beer and, by all acounts, plausible evening food.

Very good pub - great beer and atmosphere. This is what is technically known as a class boozer

Cask and Bottle challenge is legendary. If you drink a series of drinks you get a free t-shirt. Can you manage it?
