Nov ’14 Rating 52. The interest in this pub used to be the beer range, this has become rather tired and predictable now unfortunately. The Paul Pry brewery link seems to have disappeared, most of the guest beers are from Marstons or Greene King now. It is being removed from our Warwick circuit list now as there are better pubs to visit.
Dec ’11 Rating 80. A surprisingly old site for a pub one of which has stood here since 1780. The current building is Georgian and provides a great base for visiting Warwick Races, as there are 11 rooms available. There are always a constant rotating supply of guest beers many of which are unusual and hard to find. The name comes from the navvies building the nearby canals who used to buy a tot of rum and a coffee for 4d.
Update for Dec ’11 - Now the tap for Paul Pry Brewery, owned by a previous Landlord.

4 out of 6 handpumps working on my visit. The atmosphere was rather disappointing, reminding me of a typical 70’s Lounge Bar. The attached restaurant seemed very popular - in fact too popular for me to try.

New owners not very welcoming, though staff are. Beer now much too cold

Lovely pub, buzzing with atmosphere, five or six real ales available, both that I had were great, and very friendly. Would heartily recommend the short walk from the centre towards the racecourse to get to this little gem.

6 ales on rotating taps. A fine description of the ales on a whiteboard. Friendly atmosphere. I lived there for a night; fine new room, ok breakfast.
