TINY REBEL 10th Birthday

As you may already know, or have guessed, our pals at Tiny Rebel are 10!

A big milestone like this deserves a big celebration, so they’ve created their best ever birthday beers in a special 10th Birthday Box to celebrate.

Naturally we’re getting involved at both The Tap, The Shop & The Pub.
As always there will be plenty of merch & chances to win goody bags.

Triple Tropica – 10%. Our OG, Clwb, but triple the recipe, triple the flavour. Not to be missed.

Imperial Bourbon Pecan Pie Pastry Stout – 9%. Indulge, yes please! Rich maple bourbon pecan pie wrapped in a pastry stout.

Vic Secret On Galaxy DIPA – 7.2%. Two of our favourite hops for a bright tropical double IPA full of burnt orange and peach.

Hazy White – 4.4%. American IPA and Belgian Wit married for a fruity, spicy mix. A light bready maltiness and a dry refreshing finish.

Cold Fermented IPA – 4.5%. This beers is fermented at a much lower than normal temperature, giving better mouthfeel, a fuller body and rounded bold flavours.

Wood Aged Belgian Birthday Cake – 11%. It’s our birthday so this was a must. Strong notes of vanilla, oak and chocolate. The only thing missing, the candle.

Cask Conditioned Citra Milkshake IPA – 4.2%. We love cask here at Tiny Rebel HQ. This beer is as close to a cask beer as possible from a can, smooth and silky.

Mixed Berry Double Froozie Sour – 7%. Our latest passion, Froozie Sours. Full of blackcurrant for a  tart jamminess.

Carrot, Apple & Mandarin Sour – 5.8%. Carrot, but not as you know it. Alongside fruit, a perfect balance of sweet and sour.

White Chocolate & Caramac Pale Ale – 7%. Caramac is back and we’ve rediscovered our love. We’ve blended it with white chocolate to create a velvety smooth and rich pale ale.

FRONT OF HOUSE JOBS

Assistant Manager
We’re looking for a full time Assistant Manager to join our experienced crew. It’s a busy old place that prides itself on the highest customer service and doing things pretty darn well (if I do say so myself)
This is not your first foray into management or your first rodeo – ideally you’ve been well versed in the ways of hospitality for a few years now. Either way we’re looking to indoctrinate you into our way of life so that we can continue with our plans of world domination. What is really important is your ability to thrive as part of a team & display genuine love for the trade. You’ll join the management team with the full support of a GM & Deputy – backed up by some of the fluffiest staff in Leamington Spa.
We’ll reward you with a cracking salary and tips. That’s not a bad swap!

We’re an award winning independent business that absolutely acts like one – we are not a faceless corporation and we do what makes us happy rather than what we’re told. We seem to like spinning plates and can always use more hands!

If this sounds like your cup of tea/glass of wine/pint of beer get in touch via email – send us a copy of your CV & a bit of a nattery type cover letter. hello@thedrawingboard.pub

Trainee Assistant Manager

You’ll join the management team with the full support of a GM, Assistant & Deputy, not to mention the fluffiest staff in Leamington Spa.

This is real opportunity to get involved in a rather exciting time in this pub’s life.

DB Dollars

DB Dollars

BUY DB DOLLARS

We, at The Drawing Board offer our own take on spectacular gift vouchers with the magical DB Dollars*. These fantastic pieces of premium, shiny card are available in three (yes three) denominations. £5, £10 & £20 – It’s only mildly confusing as they are called dollars but actually are £. That aside you can use them at The Drawing Board pub in Leamington Spa like they are made of real money, you know for food and drink and that.

They work as ideal Birthday presents, Christmas presents or just plain old ‘presents’ presents (even new ones, maybe) They might even be used as gestures of support for small independent pubs that are mildly concerned about the current state of affairs.

You can buy them HERE, over the telephone, in person or through a window and we will either give them to you or post them to you as they are physical collectible things.

(*may not be magical, fantastic, collectible or spectacular)

Situations Vacant (Jobs!)

The Drawing Board
Is looking for an Assistant Manager to join the team.

Can someone find me a sharp witted, food loving, personality having, passionate workaholic please?!! and for the love of God, let them have a sense of humour and let them tell their own faces!

For the award winning DB its year 6 and we’re looking for future Managers in the making. We want an experienced Manager to join us. We’re amassing a small Independent army to slowly take over the Midlands (obviously)

Okay so the globe has had a rather horrific experience through this pandemic & amongst the worst sufferers it’s us in hospitality that have had a pretty hefty kick in the ghoulies. We’ve held off opening for as long as we possibly could but it’s full steam ahead as we head towards October 5th.

As an Assistant Manager you are a key member of the management team and will be expected to support the other managers as the ‘right hand’ person in all aspects of sharing responsibility for the day to day running of the pub. You will also assume responsibility for the pub when the manager is not on the premises with the help of the rest of the management team.

You’ll need to be a real foodie; have a real passion for decent beer and wine; enjoy looking after others and help build and direct a happy crew. The role will therefore be very hands-on and pretty varied encompassing people management, food and drink, customer service, pub maintenance and day to day financial administration. This is a 24/7 full on front of house, customer facing, people loving cabaret!
At the end of the day the most important quality we look for in all our people is strength of personality. We like fun characters who set the bar high and have an eye for detail.

We’ll reward you with a cracking salary plus tips. If this sounds like your cup of tea/glass of wine/pint of beer get in touch via email – send us a copy of your CV & a bit of a nattery type cover letter…

The Drawing Board was established in 2015. It is an independent Free House in Leamington Spa- apparently the happiest place to live in the country (I have my doubts but who am I to argue?) we won The Great British Pub Awards Best Beer Pub in 2019 which we’re still harping on about amongst other various prestigious gongs over the last few years.

Reopening & Bookings

Greetings Boarders! Thank you pandemic for introducing us to a refreshing new experience – being genuinely pleased to see you!!

We are reopening from our hibernation on Monday 5th October at about tea time. You can now book a table using our online booking system on this very website. The old fashioned amongst you might still wish to pick up the telephone or fling us an email (bear in mind we aren’t currently in the building to answer the blower!)

We’ve finally donned scrubs to create a socially distant DB and hopefully you’ll all feel comfortable enough to show us you’ve missed us like we’ve missed you!
