“Excellent local restaurant”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Eleven is a favourite of ours and we have eaten here 6 or so times in the past year.

It's small and there aren't many tables and the service is relaxed but this makes for a relaxed atmosphere which is perfect for a relaxing meal.
The menu changes and there are limited options but all the food we have had has been of a high standard and good value.

If you want a quick meal, then try elsewhere but for a nice midweek evening meal in a relaxed environment then it's worth a visit.

“Lovely ambiance and great value menu”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Had a midweek dinner with my family and a local friend. I have been a couple of times before, and this visit confirmed our choice. The room is lovely, very plain with interesting pictures, some of which are for sale. There is no intrusive music and an open fireplace in the corner. Tables are a good size, and not too close to one another.
Midweek, Tues to Thurs, there is a menu terroir, from which there is a choice of two starters, two main courses and two puddings, costing £15 Last night, we could happily have eaten anything from this menu, and three of us chose it. My terrine starter, and salmon main course was excellent, and the pudding, a citrus meringue, was lovely, light and fresh, but a super finish to the meal.
My son had a fantastic red onion and goat's cheese tart, and a local steak,both of which he enjoyed.
There is a nice wine list, with some good, very reasonably priced wines, and for four, the £140 including service, this was super value.
Best of all is the service. The maitre d' is charming, not intrusive but very friendly, thoughtful and pleasant.
This is a truly lovely place, and highly recommended.

“Not good at all”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Not sure why it has been rated as highly. Food was very mediocre. Expensive for what it is. The food arrived luke warm and the lamb dish was very disappointing. Vegetables were awful and not fresh at all. Would not recommend this restaurant. Much better places in leamington.

Thank you for visiting us at Eleven , and for writing a review.
We have taken your comments on board , although I am surprised that Local Lighthorne Lamb wasn't a winner as it is very popular here. Our food is fresh and prepped daily .
I can only apologise that your experience was not up to scratch on this occasion.

Regards

“What a dissapointment!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Read the reviews, thought we'd have a special meal! Seemed to go quite well until the table of 12 turned up. Then a table of 4, 2, 2, and finally 3. Didn't see a dessert menu after that. French onion soup was like onion in a veggie broth. Lacked any flavour or seasoning. Bouillabaisse for the main, tasted like fish in a baby food sauce (home made at best). Duck was in an orange juice not A'lorange., Had to move the duck to find the vegetables. No intensity of flavour like we would have expected from French influenced cooking. Dropped a lot of hard earned money for mediocre food. Waitress spent most of her time asking customers if they wanted water. Felt second class once the masses turned up. Won't return. A real shame. Although.....the mussels were lovely, just like they should have been. If the restaurant can't cook food better than us, why are we going out to eat?

Thank you for visiting Eleven in the first instance and taking time to write a review.

Firstly I would like to apologise to you. On the evening of your visit there were issues with a particular table, However , this is no excuse for not getting the service that is expected from us.

My sincere apologies.
