We booked a table as we had a Groupon voucher but saying that the 2 and 3 course fixed lunch menu is brilliantly reasonable at £15 for two courses. We had the soup of the day which was delicious and the walnut crusted Brie for starters, then the fish on the specials board the Moules, plus two glasses of house... More

Went to Wilde's for the first time for my wife's birthday treat. We arrived around 12:15 so we were a little early for the lunchtime rush. Our waiter was very welcoming and knowledgable about the food and wines on offer. The Deli plate was a great way of starting the meal, a bit like tapas so you could eat as... More

Haven't eaten at Wildes, but often visit for cocktails. Great venue for spending a few hours catching up with friends. And, they do the best White Russians ever!

Took a friend for their birthday lunch. Service with a smile - always good. The food was excellent, nicely presented and filling yet without looking too much on the plate. We had a lovely time and intend to visit again.

Excellent service. Great food, supremely cooked, by what I believe is a dying art form, a chef that can cook a steak as requested. Lovely ambience. Chef that recommends to his patrons, don't see enough of that these days. Waiters and waitresses were polite and a joy to be around. We came late and the menu was restricted. We have... More

Visited with friends for lunch. Admittedly we did a Groupon deal, therefore excellent value. Whilst the venue was very quirky and the food freshly prepared we found the menu very limited especially for vegetarians. The staff were friendly but considering it wasn't busy service was very slow. If your on your lunch hour like we were don't go there. We... More

Glad you thought it a 'nice lunch'. Sorry if you thought the service was slow. We try and judge the pace by the signals from diners. On this occasion, it appears we misunderstood. We will always - and often do - move quickly if we know our guests have a short amount of time for lunch. I'm afraid the Groupon... More

Yes, we are still here. Much has changed in Leamington - not always for the better - but we adhere to our founding principles of good food, good wine and good company! Great to see you again. Thanks for looking us up. Hope to see you next time you're doing business in town. Best wishes, Wilde's More

I guess you were not the lady who made the booking, who was advised not to come at that time on that evening - which is the one evening in the month when there is potentially loud music and when it can get very busy. For most last Tuesday regulars, that is part of the enjoyment. In fact, when the... More

The place has a good atmosphere, but was very noisy at times so much so you couldn't hear the person next to you. The staff are averagely friendly but nothing to remember. They're are a large choice of wines which the waiter seemed to know nothing about. The food is completely over rated and extremely over priced! They have a... More

This is just not true. We are not a chain restaurant with freezers full of pre-cooked meals. We have an à la carte menu with six starters, 11 mains, and six puds. Which is more than experts would say should be sensibly offered by a small, neighbourhood restaurant. On all but two sittings in the week, we also have a... More
