I recently discovered the Gauntlet when they initiated a pub quiz evening. The venue was not straightforward to find, but after the first time it gets better! The interior and staff are lovely. It is fairly modern, despite being in a very average building. The neighbourhood is very residential making it seemingly quiet.

The biggest asset of the pub is the set of prices for drinks and food. But don't let that fool you, the quality of the food is not excellent. My friends had some cheesecake slices that were pretty much frozen. My sticky toffee pudding was quite plain, but I was hungry and I ate it all :-). Overall the menu is comparable in size and choice to the major chains. Parking is not difficult as the pub is near a couple of corner stores which have ample parking (on Caesar road).

I would personally go back for quiz nights, but not just for the food.

Thank you for comments, but to clarify we do not have a cheesecake on our menu, we think you were referring to the Lemon Meringue freezer cake, which is a frozen dessert designed to go straight from freezer to table.
Thank you

The Gauntlet is a nice pub, tucked away on Caesar Road, Kenilworth. They do a great roast and other tasty pub meals and a children's menu. They have run some interesting evening events recently too like jazz and quiz nights, and a murder mystery. Good food, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Worth a visit.

I do like the atmosphere there. The new management has also changed the menu and their garlic mayonnaise is to die for. Went back after a few days only for the mayo.... and when we entered, they immediately started making it extra for us! That's more than good service. When asking for changes to the meny the staff are absolutely happy to comply to personal wishes, which makes this place a great option to try out.
The place is not packed and the music not obsessively loud so it's excellent for having an easy chat without screaming over a good plate of food. The TV screen is placed such that people can choose themselves whether they want to watch or not, much appreciated.
Prices are very reasonable, as well.
