Kenilworth's oldest pub dating back 450 years apparently although there was substantial repair in the early 19th century. As befits an old building, there are plenty of nooks and crannies, a snug and parlour and it's generally nice to look at. Ales were all from the Everards Brewery - Sunchaser, Beacon Hill, Tiger and Old Original. I tried a pint of Old Original which was in very good condition although I found it to be rather bland in taste. Bar service was instant despite there being plenty of customers last night and, if this were my local, I imagine I'd be spending a fair bit of time in there too.

A lovely interior, friendly staff and to be honest I am a little disappointed that I will not be eating here, I really like the look of the menu but we're eating at a place called The Cross tonight

Inside and out this place is a lovely. Beer wise the usual everard beers plus a guest and draft cider. A little pricey but the type of place you don't mind the little extra. The food menu looks super with a great tie selection.

Very disappointed I think this pub has lost that loving feeling in 12 months, bar staff more interested in themselves beer most expensive in area, ale ok but other pubs within half mile better,it needs a good clean, shame!

This is a massive old fashioned pub which had a range of Real Ales on, mainly Everard's, which was no bad thing. I don't think I've ever had Everard's before and all three pints were really tasty. Loved them. We ate a spot of lunch, I had the Ploughman's and the wife had the Club Sandwich. Utterly delicious! And big portions. It was a bit quiet when we went in, but it was 3:00 on a Tuesday after a Bank Holiday. The staff were friendly. I would only say that the place could do with a thorough dusting. It was clean, but dusty.

We really liked the place and would return!
