Myself and my girlfriend frequent often since moving to Leamington last September, great food, great service, but the servers also strive to know you, which adds to the service over time. The retro game night brightens up my month and is a great addition. Best beer selection in Leamington as well

Their range of burgers (including chicken and vegetarian) are well-prepared, decent portions and very good value-for-money. Staff are very friendly, service was good and there is a fine range of real ales.

Decent range of real ales including locally brewed ones, not a big selection on the main menu but enough to make a choice, nothing much for vegetarians I had the fish which was fine, service was quick and accommodating as one of our group wanted a starter instead of a dessert.

Great pub, the only pub in leam really that makes an effort with the choice of DECENT lagers and ales. The food is good here and me and my mates would regularly come here for an epic claz burger or pulled brisket burger. But after having one a good few months ago, the burger meat was really different and although... More

Can never go wrong with food in the Clarendon. Burgers are the best in town!! Couple that with a brilliant cocktail happy hour and you'll have a great experience. The only downside is they've stopped the 7 deadly gins happy hour deal, which was out of this world!!

This was a cool place, reasonably priced as well. The pitta nachos are unreal, don't get a huge amount for the price but sooooo good. Great place for beer, sport watching or a game of pool. If I'm ever close again will be making another visit.

We've been to the Clarendon a million times since we moved to Leam a few years ago. We've drunk there, we've got drunk there, we've danced there, we've watched England lose the 6 Nations there, we've eaten our way through the menu there, we've quizzed there. It's the first place we take our friends when they visit Leamington. It's so... More

In town for a overnight meeting and was taken here for a meal by one of the other people at the meeting they rated it... The menu was not bad chose a steak meal asked for it to be well done (not a blood person) and a pint of the local brew and sat down to wait. The atmosphere was... More

A strange review at best, and one that has been reported to Tripadvisor. We do not and have never sold steaks, you posted a picture of the Clarendon taken 7 years ago which you must have taken off the internet rather than taken outside the pub, which seems strange. And your strange pastime of watching toddlers groups in the local... More

I used to love the Claz. There was a nice vibe about the place and it was always a good night out. In fact, it was probably my favourite place in Leam. I went in a few Staurdays ago for lunch and a glass of prosecco with a friend. There was hardly anyone in the place and my God -... More

Wow. We don't usually reply to reviews on Tripadvisor but really felt obliged to here, and will be sharing this on all our social media platforms also. You have personally attacked an independent business with a tone we would reserve for an enemy who had done more to us than provided a "smelly chair" to sit on, not enough customers... More

The Clarendon is many things to many people. An income, a vocation, a noose; a front room to a motley crue of divorced career drinkers, and a place to drink, eat and enjoy the company of friends and strangers to Leamington's and Warwickshire county's more discerning good eggs.Independently owned since 2008, The Clarendon has catered to folk seeking great food, drink, a great soundtrack and a warm welcoming atmosphere for, well since 2008...and we have enjoyed the ride...hop on!
