Staying in Warwick for the summertime? Well, you just have to check out these 8 lively pubs to make your plans that little bit better. Student discounts, beer gardens, pub grub, live music – they’ve got it all. The sunny months wouldn’t be complete without exploring the best pubs both on and off Warwick campus. 

As you’ve probably come to realise, the University of Warwick campus is in the city of Coventry and isn’t actually located in the town of Warwick like its name suggests.  If you’re staying close to campus, perhaps staying in one of our Coventry student housings, just minutes away from the university. Then you’ll be keen to find out what the best pubs are that are in the vicinity.  

And now, without further ado, let’s get started. 

1. Fusion Sports Bar 

Fusion is an on-campus sports bar located on the first floor of the Rootes Building in the students union. The bar offers an excellent range of bevvies from local gin, wines, draught beers and bottled craft beers. As well as serving up tasty food like burgers and fries and chinese food – yum! If you want to stay up to date with all thing’s sports, then you’re in luck, they have Sky Sports and BT Sport games playing every week.  

With an array of offers available such as 2 for 1 cocktails on Fridays, what’s not to love about Fusion?!
