Independent operator Stonegate Pub Company has today (Wednesday) confirmed it has completed the purchase of the premises in Bath Street and will spend £400,000 to give it a fresh new look.

And the company has also said all 27 jobs will remain at the pub with a further five employees joining the team.

The pub was originally Leamington’s first library - the new name being a nod to this - before it was turned into a theatre and most recently being owned by pub company JD Weterspoon before it was closed temporarily while the purchase and renovation takes place.
