Picturesque pub strikes gold for fourth time at Leamington in Bloom awards

A PICTURESQUE pub has struck gold for the fourth year in a row at the Leamington In Bloom awards.

The Newbold Comyn Arms was the winner in the shops, pubs and restaurants section and has received its gold award certificate.

Judges from Leamington In Bloom – which has supported the Royal Horticultural Society’s national ‘In Bloom’ event for more than 30 years – recognised the pub’s striking floral baskets and beds and also commended its continued effort to maintain the town’s historic landscape.

Sarah Miller, owner of Newbold Comyn Arms, said: “With the global pandemic, we had a bit of extra time to care for our flowers and we’re delighted it shows.

“As an independent pub, we receive a lot of support from the community and this is one way we like to give back to this historic town.

“We would normally collect our certificate from the Leamington mayor at a ceremony at the town hall but due to coronavirus, the event can’t be held this year.

“We love taking part in the ‘In Bloom’ awards and hope next year we can return to regular celebrations.”
