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.

Great place for a special family meal, but not the sort of thing you would do every day given that it is not cheap. Fantastic attention to detail, nothing too much trouble.

I live locally to Restaurant 23 and have visited 5/6 times now. I have had the pleasure of trying the tasting menu - which is divine. We have had the set menu for dinner recently and the steak is just delicious. The service is impeccable and the food is to die for. One of my favourite restaurants

How Restaurant 23 hasn't got a Michelin star, I don't know. This was one of the best five meals I've ever tasted. We had the taster menu with the wines. Fabulously put together. Super tastes and subtlety in each dish, very special. Impeccable service, such a great experience and in our home town ! We have been for Sunday lunch... More

8 of us went to 23 last week. General opinion Good food but not value for money, basically too expensive and you can eat as well for a lot less. Wine was fine if bought by the bottle but bar drinks again just too much money

Have been to this restaurant many times and was the best in Leamington until a recent visit. They never bother to take your coats at reception so we have to awkwardly ask where to put them.
