Came here for Christmas Dinner with my friends. We had a great evening. The service is really nice and friendly. Food...amazing. Everything was spot on. Great choice of different options on the Christmas Specials. All the traditional options with the special 'Clarendon-Kitchen' touch to it. Way above average. And not to mention the desert. Everybody loved it. And unbelievably it... More

Can't fault this place. Been going for years and never fails to impress. Delicious and wholesome food of a variety which is hard to find. Amazing value for money especially in the week when the menu is slightly cheaper. You can't ask for more than that! No complaints at all. Helpful staff and a hippy vibe!

I read the reviews on trip advisor and as a consequence visited the Clarendon with my family. We were not disappointed. Between us we tried all the roasts including the vegetarian and the meats were all excellent and the accompanying vegetables were delicious. Excellent value for money as you can choose between small/medium/large. So a small roast dinner (not small!)... More

My friend and I along with our babies had lunch here. The interior is interesting and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food (we both had burritos) was tasty and reasonably priced. The baby changing/disabled toilet was a bit small but did the job. Would eat here again.

I have spent many a great night at this lovely pub - it is that rare find, it's not a chain, it's not taking itself too seriously, but cares about what it does. Has a brilliant range of bottled and draft beers - great selection of Belgian beers too. Serious cocktails too - an imaginative selection that change periodically. The... More

A friendly team, an excellent range of beers and a selection of gins that made me wish I was staying longer. The afternoon was helped along by several of the aforementioned beers and a very welcome lunch. Here's to the next time!

Love both of these places and visit them both regularly. Staff in both are great. The food in the Clarendon never disappoints and has a great menu. Have also eaten in the Cask and Bottle with their 'Bring Your Own' from the take aways across the road- a novel idea that we have used several times! Always made to feel... More

It says it on the tin, it's a cracking boozer. Great beers, including craft beers in bottles and cans, brilliant selection of gins too. The staff are fantastic and always on hand to help and have a good laugh with - nice to go into a pub where the staff are allowed a personality. The food is always good and... More

I'm a 40-something female and spent a couple of hours outside in the beer garden at the Clarendon with 2 fellow colleagues both before going to our work conference venue on Weds 25/6/14 and before we left Leamington Spa at the end of the conference on Fri 27/6/14. From the outside there is nothing particularly special about the Clarendon but... More
