I love this place as a pub. But as a place to eat I am definitely unsure food was just okay certainly not where I would choose when I think of the many other places to eat in Leamington. What I would say to others is give it a go and decide for yourself

The title says it all really. I'd never been over this part of the country before, but it was a recommendation for a team night out. I found myself pleasantly surprised despite the locale which was right in the middle of a residential area. Obviously on-street parking is residents or you have to pay, but i found somewhere close by... More

Having seen all the positive reviews we decided to visit for Sunday lunch. Normally come here for drinks rather than food. It was pretty quiet with the usual laid back atmosphere. We had the roast sharing platter which was really very generous for the price although I found the food itself to be pretty average. The meats were a little... More

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
