We meet at Coventry station at 11.30 in order to catch the 11.42am train from Coventry which arrives in Nuneaton at 12.00 noon. Then we walk down to the bus station Stand C1 to catch the 12.16pm No 86 bus to Stoke Golding, which arrives at 12.30pm. Or we could catch it a minute later at Old Hinkley Road adjacent to Saints Way.

Alighting from the bus we make for Church End's pub, the GEORGE AND DRAGON. We could just stay here, or if people wish we could explore the village. I believe there is also the Three Horseshoes, The Swan and the Village Club.

Reurn buses run at 1.48, 2.48, 3.48 and 4.48pm arriving in Nuneaton at 13 minutes past the hour. From Nuneaton we catch the 17 or 41 bus to Tunnel's pub, The WEAVERS on Heath End Road.

The 17 leaves Nuneaton bus station at 3.20, 4.17 and 5.17pm. Later it becomes the 17A leaving at 6.26, 7.20 and 8.20pm. The 17B is a totally different route which doesn't run on a Saturday. There is also the 41 leaving at 3.25, 4.25 and 6.40pm. In all cases the journey will only take 5 minutes, or we could walk through town !

We could stay here a little while as I hear the Horseshoes keeps a wide range of beers, not just Tunnel brews. From the Weavers I guess the best return route would be to walk down Bull Ring to Coton Road to catch any of the buses going towards Coventry.
