Is there any better way to celebrate summer than by sipping an ice-cold G&T on a warm, sunny day? We think not. 

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best gin bars in and around Warwickshire and Worcestershire. 

From mobile bars and restaurants to a French-themed boutique-style café, there are plenty of great venues to visit where it’s always Gin O’Clock. 

 

Primo
Just moments away from the busy Worcester streets is this premium destination, offering an independent bar and dining experience in the historic part of Sudbury. 

Primo's contemporary cuisine and ‘carefully crafted’ cocktail list is sure to leave you satiated yet wanting more! 

The extensive drinks menu features 29 gins on a purely ‘spirit level’, alongside a large selection of gin cocktails. 

The Glass Bar, a wonderful addition to the already avant-garde restaurant, is one of the best spaces in which to enjoy the carefully selected gins!

The Little Gin Company
This unique and independent mobile gin business prides itself on catering for its customers’ every gin need. 

Available for private and corporate hire, the converted horse trailer features its very own gin club, offering a gin-tasting experience that’s perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or any sort of do. 

The company also hosts artisan gin-tasting sessions. Choose your favourite to enjoy as a full drink, complete with all the required accompaniments. 

The company is based in Warwickshire but can be found appearing at food & drink festivals across the Midlands.

Saffrons Bistro
This independent bistro loves gin and has built up quite the selection - over 60, in fact, ranging from the classic Plymouth to current favourite Brockmans. 

Saffrons is a largely undiscovered gem, its slightly wonky, cosy atmosphere making it the perfect stop-off for a pre-dinner G&T or an after-dinner liqueur coffee. 

Gin junkies can learn more about their favourite spirit in the venue’s special gin-tasting sessions. These feature a choice of five gins with botanical pairings and limitless Fever Tree tonic for only £25! 

15 New St, Worcester WR1 2DP

Cafe Vin Cinq
Voted the best bar in Rugby, this intimate French-themed boutique-style venue boasts 120-plus years of experience and a wide range of gin cocktails to enjoy. 

It also hosts now-famous cocktail workshops. Providing an introduction to mixology and the history of cocktails, the sessions offer participants the chance to become connoisseurs of the shaken drink, the muddled drink and the multi-layered drink, not to mention the opportunity to try something new. 

25 High St, Rugby CV21 3BW

Restaurant 23
Offering a ‘unique, highly satisfying and relaxed’ experience, this decadently decked-out restaurant certainly won’t disappoint. With several gins to choose from, not to mention some unorthodox but delightful-sounding cocktails, Restaurant 23 definitely deserves its place on the gin trail. 

The venue’s overall atmosphere fits in perfectly with the gin image: snazzy, sophisticated and exceptionally satisfying. 

34 Hamilton Terrace, Leamington Spa CV32 4LY

G & Tea
G & Tea is the realisation of lifelong friends Chrissy and Therese’s shared dream to open a tearoom with a twist. 

Quaint yet wacky, the venue caters for its customers all hours of the day, offering the classic tearoom essentials as well as its signature Gin Teapot Cocktails for gin enthusiasts. 

45 Friar St, Worcester WR1 2NA
