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.

Possibly the best lunch I have ever had!

This is the second time I have ever visited for lunch - the first having been in December 2014 with my sister for a pre-Christmas treat! That time was exquisite, and we loved it so much we booked a return visit, along with a friend for a farewell/birthday celebration. We all had the three course... read more

We visit this restaurant regularly, whenever the menu changes, mainly for lunch which is particularly good value. We have never been disappointed with the food and service and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a slightly more formal dining atmosphere which is still friendly and relaxing.

My wife & I went to the Restaurant to celebrate her birthday. It was an amazing evening. The staff were all very friendly and very attentive, without feeling like they were pestering you. We started the evening upstairs with a cocktail from their extensive list. They were both very well made and tasted wonderful. The restaurant itself was intimate and... More

Lovely lunch at one of the best restaurants in Warwickshire. Lunch time set menu was very good, enjoyed by 3 of my party and good value at £25 for 3 courses,I had the a la carte at £45 which was fab. Staff who are very attentive and friendly make the whole experience even more enjoyable.

We went here for lunch and although the service and food could' be faulted, for me it was just all a bit too stuffy. We didn't eat in the main restaurant space but were in a side room and it was lacking atmosphere.

From the freshly made cocktails to the best crab salad I've ever tasted, the excellent service to the intimate atmosphere, this was truly one of the best meals out we've had.

Booked a deal they have for a meeting room and lunch offer. Seemed too good to be true but was exactly as their rep said it would be. We all met in the morning and had lovely teas and coffees and the most beautiful cakes and biccies! Lunch was in the restaurant and was sublime. Fine dining at its best,... More
