Not only is their Sunday lunch AMAZING. The breakfast is HUGE, absolutely yummy and such good value as it includes a hot drink or juice. Best brekkie in Warwick. Thank you Cape 😊

Lovely food. Friendly atmosphere. Menu a little short to eat there a lot. Canal side venue is great in the summer. Parking a little limited. Nice place to relax on a summer afternoon or evening.

We have visited this pub several times and the food has always been outstanding. I can recommend the pork loin with mustard mash and the fish and chips chosen by 2 of our group was a huge portion with crispy batter and good chips. Staff and very friendly and welcoming and the New Zealand ownership gives this pub a character... More

The Cape of Good Hope appears to be the only pub in Warwick where can't just sit and have a pint and good conversation. Honestly, this is a brutal shame as the beer is so good. But if you want to just sit and enjoy pleasant conversation with friends, you will find it very difficult to enjoy that here. Whether... More

Managed to find this place thanks to google maps! Very glad I did. While staying at the nearby premier inn I did a map search and about a 15 walk later I found this pub. Right on the waterside of a canal with narrow boats outside. Approx 300 years old ,this pub was cracking. Friendly staff and a great pint.... More

The interior isn't awesome and it's quite small but the food is awesome with reasonable prices. Chicken very tender and the choice of chips is great! Would always go back.... Short walking/driving distance from the premier inn in Warwick.

Went for lunch with colleagues who were in search of real ale. This traditional looking canal side pub is a real gem. I was really surprised and charmed by the diversity of the menu. The Kiwi Beef Burger (Beetroot, Fried Egg, Salad & Tomato) was in a league of its own - wow. A colleague had the White Fish Stew... More

Ideal place to pop in if your walking, boating or fishing the Grand Union Canal. Food good and wholesome but just a touch over priced. It would have been better if the time to make the food look pretty had been used to get it out faster! The wait was a bit too long when the pub wasn't really busy.... More
