Description: Restaurant 23 first opened its doors in Royal Leamington Spa in May 2006. Over the following years, the restaurant, led by Head Chef Peter Knibb, forged an impressive culinary reputation, showcasing the finest seasonal and local produce with innovative dishes.The care and attention given to cooking the locally sourced ingredients coupled with Peter's flair, led to the restaurant being awarded two AA rosettes, and saw it featured in the National Good Food Guide with an impressive score.February 2012 saw the start of a new era for the restaurant when it moved to a grade II listed Victorian building, merely a few minutes walk from the original Dormer Place location in Royal Leamington Spa.The restaurant's new home features beautiful, luxurious surroundings, seating up to 40 guests in comfort and style. In addition, we have two beautiful private dining rooms, to seat 8 guests and 14, available for hire, as well as the addition of a all-new feature cocktail lounge bar.

A huge thank you to Peter and his team for a fantastic Wedding Reception/ 40th Birthday celebration. We were over the moon with the whole afternoon's events, from the cocktail and canape reception, the delightful tasting menu with matching wine to the coffee and birthday cake finale. Not only was the food sublime but the service was attentive and non... More

Just a wonderful experience from start to finish. Truly superb service, unhurried and low key but friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic and paired with some excellent wines recommended by the atelier. Fine dining at its best.

We celebrated my birthday with dinner at Restaurant 23 last night and I have to say we were truly spoiled! We had a drink in the cocktail bar on arrival. It had a relaxed atmosphere and table service with complimentary olives and nuts. We were then seated at our table - a lovely table for 2 with views of the... More

We visited Restaurant 23 as part of our 26th wedding anniversary celebrations. We arrived about 30 mins early to give us time to go to the cocktail bar before our meal. The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived until we left. We ordered cocktails and chose our meals whilst in the upstairs bar. We were then taken to... More

This was our 2nd visit (the 1st was perfect!) and so disappointing. We picked the Taster menu and phoned ahead to confirm. We were invited for cocktails, but the bar was really busy and we were told "you'll just have to stand somewhere". No one came to collect us when our table was ready, so had to prompt the bar...

This is a restaurant for a special occasion, it's lovely but don't go on a budget. I would recommend a drink in the bar upstairs before hand, which is quiet before 8, but this means service is fast. Food universally well presented, well thought through and well cooked. The staff are very polite but not overbearing, surroundings very tasteful. This... More

Read other reviews and went with an open mind, met our friends in Morgans bar and they had been there around 20 mins and nobody had offered them a drink, when we arrived we thought maybe you go to the bar, we were told it was waiter service so another 10 mins and finally someone came to take our order....

Second visit in a few weeks, and I'd highly recommend a visit. It's not cheap, but the food and service are excellent and really not bad value. The beef fillet was simple and beautifully cooked. The pork a little more complex but both were delicious. My only slight negative was that our waitress seemed more determined to explain the dishes... More
