Following news of its rescue last month, Leamington Spa’s freshest pub ‘The Old Library’ has opened after a significant £400,000 transformation.
Monday 22ndMay welcomes first customers as the independent character and new ‘script’ are unveiled from the quirkily designed secret garden to revolutionary sports viewing, crafted beers, and music nights.
“Books might not be able to change their cover but iconic pubs most certainly can!” said new manager Ange Sinclair. “We’ve referenced heritage in the name to emphasise the message that we are restoring traditional pub values–we’re about community, diversity,and value.”
Opening from 8am, its breakfast where traditional English starts at £3.49, is a taste of the vast menu with over 100 combinations of dishes and a different offer such as Burger & a drink for £7.49, every day of the week.
Cask lovers will be pleased with the vast choice of real ales on tap next to revolutionary craft beers Purity longhorn and BrewDog Punk IPA. Cocktail lovers can enjoy the two for one all day every day whilst gin lovers will relish in the seven deadly gins range.
Yet the huge changes for the pub known previously for its no music and no sports policy, is the entertainment and nine screens airing both Sky and BT, which will showcase on FA Cup final day of the opening weekend.
“Our first weekend is a bank holiday,” added Ange, “so we’re starting as we mean to go on with live acoustic nights and opportunity to win £100. We’re hosting live music after the football on Saturday before our Sunday quiz with star prize a 40” TV!”
Another true pub tradition returns with the Sunday Roast – the dish controversially removed by previous owners in 2016.
The following weekend is as busy with Friday party night, Saturday beach party, and Sunday quiz when a ‘Crack the Code’ rolling jackpot will start.
Monday hosts poker; Tuesday acoustic nights; Wednesday why not try; Thursday after work social; Friday and Saturday party nights; and Soul Sunday with quiz night.
