Nice olde worlde kind of place. The inside is nice enough with its wobbly beams and stuff. There were 3 handpulls working and the beer was fine. A large and very good beer garden is to the rear.

Charles Wells house in an aged building, 15th century. A little of the character remains inside in the T shaped interior but we’re mainly talking wonky ceiling, beams etc. Overly loud music didn’t really enhance the atmosphere. The main draw is the fantastic rear garden, large and surrounded by trees, with a grassed rear. Three ales on; Wells Eagle IPA (good form), Hop Studio Citra and Camerons Fridge Magnet. Pub is child friendly. It's fine overall but lacks a little something to make it premier league.

A locals pub for local people, good luck getting served here if Old Tom wants to push in in front of you.

Unfriendly and unwelcoming, its one for the locals

A great looking black and white timbered old pub. The room to the left was full of diners on our visit. There's another small room to the right and a small area towards the rear which leads to a big beer garden. Friendly service from the barman even though he was serving meals at the same time. My pint of Wells Golden Cauldron was in good nick. It's a very pleasant pub.

We were met by a friendly barman on our visit to this pub. The manager was also very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the direction with regards to must visit pubs in the area. We were told this Charles Wells tied pub was over three hundred years old.
The bar counter faces you as you enter, with some seats in front and a log burning stove. There was a small room on the right of this and an area on the left, set out for dining.
The barman showed us their massive beer garden at the back, which was pretty impressive and showed us photos of it completely full in the summer. On the beer front, we went for the Wells Golden Cauldron and the Thwaites Crafty Devil.

For me it is the porter which sells this place. On every visit there hasn't been just the one to choose from and as a fan of the darker ale this is right up my street. It is a very compact and intimate pub but well worth a visit and very convenient for the Castle and River Avon.

Soup Dragon left this review about New Bowling Green Inn

A town centre white and timber framed terraced Charles Wells pub

The interior has two rooms; a bar/lounge and a 'games/quiet' room. The L shaped bar/lounge was generally in white, with a TV showing the Cheltenham festival (hence we moved into the other room). The bar had a mural on the wall seemingly showing Warwick folk. The games room, in crimson with a brick fireplace and wood floor had chess and other board games, but was a lot quieter. The service was fine, even when we returned our initial pints - the barrel swiftly changing. The clientele seemed a mature mix and the music, supplied by the radio, was at a decent level. There were planty of ceiling and support beams giving the place a touch of the historic feel.

Beer; tap stuff, with Wells' Bombardier and a decent enough IPA - its just not really to my taste. The guest that we had to return was Castle Rock Elsie Mo.

I liked this place, and was please to go despite Wells not being my favourite brewery. Try it!
