RAR 249 Warwick

header artwork

This month we visit some of the new (er) pubs in Warwick, We meet at5 10.45 in Trinity Street and catch the 11.00 bus to Warwick. We alight at 12.07 at the stop just after Warwick Hospital, that is, Wathen Road. On the opposite side of the road is a small industrial estate. Through here to the right is a bridge across the canal leading to Woodloes Park estate and a path past a school brings us to the WOODLOES TAVERN. This opened a few years ago as the Sarah Siddons but has since undergone a change of name to the Woodloes Tavern.

When we leave here we retrace our steps and pass the bus stop again making for Lyttelton Road. We cross Wedgenock Green and then Cape Road to enter Saltisford Common. Following the path under the railway we next cross Saltisford and take the path alongside the racecourse. We then turn right and take Hampton Road until it crosses Gog Brook. Here we walk along a path before turning right to join Purser Drive. We pass a Lake and arrive at a block of shops and the UNICORN. This pub was still two weeks away from opening when I visited it, so it is very new! It has been built by Marstons.

From the Unicorn we simply walk down to the main Stratford Road and back into Warwick to arrive at the OLD POST OFFICE, Warwick's new ( ish ) micropub, run by Tom Douglas, once licensee of the Castle at Edge Hill. Here we can await our return bus to Coventry. Return buses leave Stand D at Warwick Bus Station at 4.42, 5.12, 5.55, 6.40 and 7.25 is the last direct one. Other buses mean a change at Leamington
