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.

We went here with 3 other couples and had a great evening due to the company and food...however the waiters made us feel awkward and at times unwelcome. This place should be one of the best in town...they just need to remember that service is about smiling, making people feel comfortable and catered for.

I've visited R23 many times before and its always a very enjoyable experience. I booked afternoon tea for myself and my grandma who has just celebrated her 80th birthday. The service was excellent as always, friendly, and timely. The food was all delicious, and not too over facing as some afternoon teas can be. The house blend of tea was... More

This was our first visit, after meaning to come for some time. We were welcomed and shown to our table, offered drinks, given menus, I must say the service and attention to detail was exceptional throughout the evening. The portions are small, but after you progress through the courses, you do feel full. The food was very well presented and... More

I visited Restaurant 23 on Saturday July 18th with a group of friends and unfortunately was thoroughly underwhelmed by the whole experience. Don't get me wrong, the place was okay but it was let down by two basics, a friendly welcome, and good tasty food. The booking experience was one of the most frustrating and least least friendly I have... More

What superb food and outstanding service. By far outshines the local Michelin starred establishments. The menu is extensive and creative. My partner is vegetarian and they can always accommodate her with something superb. If you haven't been you're seriously missing out!

We were recommended this restaurant by our daughter, who said it was just 'Our sort of place' she was not wrong. A real treat, truly fine dining. Ambiance, staff, service excellent. One tiny gripe, the panna cotta did not have a wobble, but after such beautiful food, small point.
