The Clarendon is a great "go-to" pub. Not overly spectacular for food, but the option is there if you want it. The staff are knowledgable about not drinks, especially Gin cocktails. My husband enjoys so playing pool with his friends and I partake in some reasonably priced cocktails. Its recently gone quite quiet which is a shame as it's such... More

After calling into a different pub to grab Sunday lunch only to find out there were no spaces, we walked up to the Clarendon. So glad we did. For £9 each we had a plate of food that was hot (apart from the Yorkshire pudding) and absolutely delicious. There was every vegetable imaginable. .carrots, sprouts, red cabbage (beautiful) parsnips, roast... More

I went to the Clarendon for a Pub Quiz with my friends and loved it! The quiz master was amazing and the crowd comprising people of all ages made it more inclusive. Enjoyed my time here to the fullest!

Managed to get a last minute Sunday lunch booking here for myself and a mate and overall, it gets a good thumbs up. We both had the Pork Belly Roast which I must admit, was absolutely amazing. Came with all the trimmings, and was cooked to perfection. Had a chocolate brownie for dessert which was great as well. Not bad... More

We had the roast lunch platter to share for £20. It had 3 meats, generous portions of roast potatoes, veg and Yorkshire pudding with all the trimmings. Very satisfying. Staff very friendly. Good service. Will definitely come again.

I'm in here every week - excellent beers (draught and bottled), small but tasty food menu, plenty of TVs for live sport and great for an hour or two playing pool and putting the world to right. The staff are very friendly and they do great oddball nights like retro gaming - sadly my sensible soccer skills have not improved... More

Nice pub, very popular in Leamington; but not too many tables to have drinks with friends. There are tables for lunch and dinner, pool tables area, but not really drink tables where you can sit and discuss. music quite loud. Atmosphere is nice though.

Went to the Clarendon for Sunday lunch with my wife, son and daughter in law. First impression was a bit doubtful but we soon settled in to the atmosphere of the place. We ordered two sharing platers. Absolutely excellent and such good value for money. We followed the main with pudding balls. A really different desert which I will definitely... More

A cool place with some grungy furniture and a return to school with an old desk, complete with the customary wadge of chewing gum on the underside! Other areas offer a different vibe but overall there's a good atmosphere with a friendly and cheery staff team. After one of the barmen kindly checked out a couple of the beers online... More

The Clarendon is many things to many people. An income, a vocation, a noose; a front room to a motley crue of divorced career drinkers, and a place to drink, eat and enjoy the company of friends and strangers to Leamington's and Warwickshire county's more discerning good eggs.Independently owned since 2008, The Clarendon has catered to folk seeking great food, drink, a great soundtrack and a warm welcoming atmosphere for, well since 2008...and we have enjoyed the ride...hop on!
