The Drawing Board

An Independent Free House in Royal Leamington Spa

A friendly independent free house with an eclectic mix of ale, malts, crafts & wines.

The DB is an eclectic, independent Free House with a good mix of ales, malts, crafts & wines. It is a relaxed, family & dog-friendly place to eat & drink.

We are a relaxed, family friendly, dog friendly eatery where you can feel at home whether clutching a laptop with a coffee, having dinner with your partner, chomping tapas pre theatre or supping a few beers after work. The DB opened in April 2015 after The Regency Arms (formerly The Newbold Bar & Brasserie) closed it’s doors in the January. The DB is two levels of timbered floor, smattered with rugs & mismatched dining furniture. Plants, squishy leather sofas & log burners both upstairs & down mean that you can eat or drink pretty much anywhere whilst still getting a fix of photosynthesis. Framed vintage comic books & games consoles adorn the walls whilst annuals from yesteryear fill the shelves.
