“Friendly Atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Went for dinner last night and thoroughly enjoyed myself. This pub is one of my favourite places to eat in Leamington. They are child friendly (up to 7pm) and have created a very relaxed environment. The staff are always very attentive and polite and the food is quick to arrive. They offer a large selection on ales and beers to suit every taste and have managed to create an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by students, professionals and families. I recommend going there for a Sunday roast.

“Lunch - very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I remember The White Horse from a couple of decades ago: rucks every Saturday night and a bit of a natorious local dive, but it's long since had a makeover and a friend recommended the food so I gave it a try.

It was a bit empty the weekday lunchtime we went, and when we left there were still only a dozen or so in there. I put this down to a sign of the times more than anything else. The decor is ok, 'shabby wood' etc.and could probably do with a touch-up. The service was fine. I had whitebait to start - hard to find on menus these days so I always choose it! It was fresh and cooked just right. We both had gammon, double egg and chips and these were both well prepared and presented. Together with two pints each of pleasant Cornish ale the whole bill came to a mere £24. Yes, £24! FIne dining and designer decor it ain't, but for plain, well prepared food and an excellent choice of ales this has got to be an excellent deal. Give it a try one lunchtime!

(NB: This place came up in Trip Advisor as 'an Attraction' ????? So it didn't ask me to fill in the usual standard info for a restaurant, sorry. Still, the review should suffice.)

“Fine choice of beers and international lagers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Eclectic furniture and clientele! Great atmosphere, lots of space but still has a cosy feel to it. Only called in for a drink but good range of beers (including Purity Ubu), international lagers on draught and Belgian bottles behind the bar. Only been to a few bars in LemSpa but this is the one for me.

“Nice pub, suspect bouncer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great pub and had a great night, just a shame that we bought drinks and 5 minutes later the bouncer confiscated them and ushered everyone out. I thought there was law giving people 20 minutes to drink up, they shoudln't have let us buy the round if they new we would be booted out 5 minutes later. Apart from that though, it was good
