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.

The food was terrific but the service was mediocre at best; it took 20 minutes from arrival to get a drink. Despite it being New Years Eve, the party atmosphere was non-existent.

I went to this remarkable place as a 25th Birthday present to myself and had the Tasting Menu. It was the first time I had ever had a tasting menu! I was not disappointed in any way. I was warmly welcomed and shown to my table where I enjoyed a delicious amuse bouche of butternut squash puree with a ricotta... More

Another lovely dining experience at Restaurant 23. The food on New Year's Eve was impressive and the band playing made for a special evening for us and our friends. A real treat!

I have been going to Restaurant 23 (and its previous incarnation) for a number of years. It is still the place to go for a special meal, birthday etc. but I can't help feel that whilst it has gained a lovely bar, it has lost in its dining experience. However those who never visited the previous venue rate this restaurant... More

My wife and I dined here with 2 close friends. We enjoy good food, whether fine dining style or simple well prepared bistro style. Our universal consensus was that our experience was "style over substance". Sure 23 aims to give Leamington a fine dining venue. The decor, the cocktail lounge for pre-dinner drinks, the option of a taster menu, the... More

This place is fabulous! A bit pricey but worth every single penny. Things moved off our table without us even noticing, such was the fabulous service!! Food was perfection on a plate. A great treat for a special occasion.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who is local - so we went it with some raised expectations of course. Straight opinion upfront and details further below: The restaurant offers a simply perfect service - there was no flaw at all and the waiters were up to the top standard. It is one of my little "hobbies" when eating... More
