Pub 2 : Varsity, Gibbet Hill Road
“Varsity” – a team representing a college or university
“Gibbet Hill” – The hill itself is named after the crossroads at the apex of the hill (just beyond the campus on the Kenilworth road) on which a scaffold for public hangings called a Gibbet used to stand.
It’s a relatively new pub built around 1990 at the junction of Kirby Corner Road and Gibbet Hill Road. In 2019 it received a £200,000 refurbishment.
