The Royal Horse
Leamington's newest pub, or rather restaurant. Part of the Hungry Horse chain, some bright spark decided to call it the Royal Horse. This is up by Heathcote crossroads near to the Heathcote Pub. That has a 'For lease' board outside at the moment and I would suggest it will be a brave person to take that on as a going concern. This new one has been open for a week now. I was in there last Friday, it was packed at lunchtime. The food was pretty good with a varied menu. Worth a visit.
The Plough and Harrow
St Margaret's Church, Whitnash
Leamington Bowls Club
Leaving Whitnash and skirting Newbold Comyn, I made my way home through Victoria Park. On the edge of the park is the Leamington Spa Bowling Club and, being Sunday morning, was in full flow. I did notice that many of the participants had their jackets and wooly cardigans on. Although it is nearly mid May, there is still a chill to the wind as these hardy souls will testify to.
A comfortable spin out today, just hitting the 15 mile mark. Not so sure that shorts and tee shirt was the best of gear today though.
