What a joy to find such a gem directly opposite where we were staying. Great selection of real ales form Everard plus a guest and a excellent pint of Westons draught scrumpy.
This place has some much charm, apparently the pub goes back to the 16th Century and has little rooms and passages all at different levels. Staff were efficient and friendly even when under pressure. Would certainly return in the future.

Popped in for a couple of drinks on a Saturday afternoon Didn't eat here as we were booked elsewhere but the food I saw looked good to me. Proper pub with all sorts of different rooms They serve a good selection of beers I liked the sunsearcher bitter.

This is an excellent pub with a fine range of real ales and excellent food. Usual pub food is on offer but try the Philippine fare for a real treat.
Service is always excellent and the small patio garden at the back is idyllic in summer and just the place to idle away a lazy sunny Sunday afternoon.
They will cater for large parties also and do this excellently (menu B is fab)!

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime and three of us enjoyed the two course set menu and my wife had a very tasty club sandwich. Very good attentive service. Marked the atmosphere down one thanks to the couple behind us - they of the belching male!!

We recently ate 3 times here during our stay in kennilworth for a family wedding. Arrived on a Thursday, which was a bonus due to half price Champers and very reasonably priced combo's to share.
The fish platter was to die-for......they even "Held" the whitebait and supplied more scampi and fish cakes for my wife and I.....which was greatly appreciated...Thankyou!!
Pleasantly served and very efficient, the whole ambience of the V&C was glorious, hence we returned another two-times....!!!
The next visits were just as good and so was the Champagne...yet again!!!!
All in all...a very pleasant trip to Kennilworth, made special by good company, good food and great hospitality from the V&C....many thanks.
Would we call again??....Absoloooootleeee!!!..hope it's not too long before we return!!
("Still have a thick-Head"!!!)...quantity...not quality!!!!
