    Another favourite of mine is The Castle at Edge Hill, and The Rose & Crown just down the road in Ratley is also a great pub.

    If you get the chance, the Greyhound at Sutton Stop is worth a visit.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    It does seem very popular and more well known as the Leopard than it's former name The Revolver.
    I think The Revolver closed about 2007 and was designed as a Seventies style Steak house back then.

    More Warwickshire pubs that I have enjoyed visiting are:

    The Crown Inn, Southam
    The Crown Inn, Claverdon
    The Windmill Inn, Leamington Spa.

    Ones that I miss:

    Bear in the Spa, Whitnash. It has since reverted back to the former name,"The Heathcote" and it is still good.

    The Racehorse, Warwick .It has now been taken over under new management as its street number only,"Number 34". I preferred this Pub as it was. Don't get me wrong it is all tastefully done and you may like the menu however it seems to have gone a bit too high end with its fancy menu dishes as I preferred the old Racehorse menu personally.

    I was talking to a young lady yesterday who is thinking about taking on a village pub. Bouncing ideas around, she said that she would gut it and create a completely new ambience. I did try to suggest caution, as the pub we were in had done this a few years back and had thrown out and destroyed a lot of irreplaceable history.

    I agree that doing that can destroy the former ambience and history of a pub to the point of visiting it less or focussing on another old favourite.
