Wow what a transformation from the old beefeater, and finally a team that's full of energy, serving fresh hot food, and my favourite ale doom bar! Keep up the good work, I will be back soon with my family!

Hello and thanks for your review. It's always great to get a fantastic review that highlights our establishment and we're glad your experience was a premium one. I can't understand why the previous team didn't thank you sooner! Thanks again! Chris

Nice welcoming décor and very good service. The scallop starter was good but the main course fish had a raft of bones in it. (This should not happen in a restaurant of this standing) We complained and it was quickly replace with a fish pie.......More

A total refurb puts this place top of the pile in Kenilworth now. If you're undecided then try it out. We thought it was fantastic.

Many thanks for your review for our establishment. I'm not sure why the previous management didn't thank you at the time and highlight this review for our guests and visitors to the site to see. Thank you on their behalf retrospectively. Chris

Lovely decor but food not up to scratch- tough reheated roasties and leather Yorkshire puds. Staff treated place like a social hang out and surrounded all exits smoking. I think we will all stick to The Cross- miles apart and they make everything from scratch!...More
