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.

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

At the weekend we attended our friends' Ruby Wedding party at Restaurant 23. We were truly impressed by the imaginatively presented, delicious food, an impression complemented by the modern elegance behind the Georgian façade. The celebration was enhanced by attentive service - formal, yet friendly. A memorable experience for a memorable occasion. Viv and Paul.

Had a lovely romantic meal with my husband, very nice cocktails to begin with. Had the Market menu, so was not always sure what I had ordered and should of paid more attention! We would of ordered more drinks but they always seemed to take a long time, probably because the bar was dealing with the customers in the bar... More

Didn't visit the restaurant but have been assured it's excellent. I visited the cocktail lounge which was fantastic. Leamington has been waiting for this for a while. Table service, fabulous drinks and a great atmosphere. Little bit on the pricey side but well worth it. Looking forward to my next visit .

We booked this restaurant for our anniversary and ordered à la carte. Though there were some minor problems with the service, largely owing to the restaurant being very busy, the food was excellent. Dietary requirements were asked for in advance and catered for in what we ordered. We had three courses and a bottle of white Burgundy, which came to... More

Our booking was made well in advance and it was easy to see why it was necessary. The place was pretty much full when we got there. We were originally going to go for the taster menu with wine, but decided not to as not all of us wanted the wines on offer and you can't have only selected diners... More
