It is amazing that this place exists as it is a proper, British pub. Live music on many nights. Fantastic and well kept beers. Great Everards beers and guest beers. Interesting conversation. Great atmosphere. Also the best landlord in the area. What's not to like?

Must have the best pub garden in Leamington, good variety of ales with friendly staff. No food but this is a proper old fashioned pub. Enjoy

The 'Ville is what every local pub should be. Its warm and rustic character is undisturbed by sticky dining tables and garish food menus. If you are hungry though, you can complement the fine selection of ales with a trusty packet of crisps.

A brilliant traditional pub! If you want a quality drink and good company, then the Sommerville is the place to go. I've spent entire evenings debating and laughing there with friends- and strangers who became friends! Wouldn't imagine going anywhere else now. There's some music...More
