Could you run this pub in Leamington Spa?
The Bulldog is traditional community pub located at the heart of Leamington Spa. The pub consists of a large bar, with a pool area and multiple TVs that show all key sporting events through Sky and BT Sport, for which the pub is known. It also has a function room, which can hold up to 100 people, making it the perfect place to celebrate occasions and hold events.
The pub has two patio-size beer gardens to both the front and rear of the pub, making this the perfect hub for the community during the summer. The pub has recently benefited from a brand new kitchen to allow for the introduction of a food offer. The pub is famous among locals for its regular live entertainment and for watching Sky TV and BT Sports matches and events.
A small sparkle investment was completed in 2018, changing the name of the pub back to the Bulldog from the Whitnash Tavern. The current publican completed their own internal sparkle in 2019, which included works to the bar and function room. In 2019 a new fully electric kitchen was installed.
