user reviews of the Graduate, Warwick University

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

I'm not sure the Graduate exists in its old format. The primary bar in the Students' Union is now called the Dirty Duck. Although it does have a smaller room adjoining it that is called the Graduate. That is for postgraduates and has no real ales. The Dirty Duck was busy on Saturday evening. It serves 2 real ales. These were North Cotswold Moreton Mild & Wye Valley Summit. There were also 3 real ciders from Lilleys - Mango Cider, Apples and Pears & Darkcider. Food is served from an open kitchen. Surprisingly we didn't seem to be the oldest customers in here on Saturday evening. A good option if you happen to be at the university.

As drtimthornton mentions this is the only place on the Warwick Campus that you may stumble upon a half-decent pint.

As long as I've been popping in there they've had a reasonable pint of St Austell Brewery's Tribute on. This is normally complemented by another guest ale (sometimes a cider) of variable quality. They also have bottles of different continental lagers and domestic ciders available if your feeling a bit flush. This place is quite poky and can get very busy of a night during term but if you can endure student banter you'll get on fine.

*Loner Drunk Alert* - You can often spot a guy in here known as 'Zoidberg' or 'Freddie Mercury' (because of his mustache). He looks a bit surly but will often just wallow about in a corner drowning in his pint.

---Other watering holes at Warwick Uni---

As you'd expect the Student Union serves up your standard student junk lagers the best on offer probably being the Grolsch. The Bar (Also referred to as the Airport Lounge) does have the occasional real ale on but please, please, please AVOID this poorly kept rubbish (I remember them murdering a Hook Norton once). You can play pool and on the games machines at both venues as well as see the footy on the box.

The Warwick SU is a crap night out. Avoid.

Now in its third year, this is the only plausible source of real ale at the University of Warwick (the quality at other bars being low). It has Tiger and its own Church End Graduate Ale on handpull and up to three guest beers by gravity. Because - I assume - of fluctuating demand the guest beers run out quite often. But it is an attractive retreat for much of the day with fairly reliable beer.
