“The most perfect & pretty beer garden/yard & fab staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I'm a 40-something female and spent a couple of hours outside in the beer garden at the Clarendon with 2 fellow colleagues both before going to our work conference venue on Weds 25/6/14 and before we left Leamington Spa at the end of the conference on Fri 27/6/14. From the outside there is nothing particularly special about the Clarendon but as soon as you go inside you have a great experience: smiling, friendly, helpful and straightforward staff who know their stuff and just want you to have a good experience; very reasonably priced drinks; fresh interior and a spotless, freshly painted, pretty, effortlessly sophisticated beer garden/yard. How I loved that outside space! A haven in a busy world :) We didn't have the time to order meals on either visit, but got top customer service from all staff we had contact with, and would definitely return if ever back in Leamington Spa. On both occasions the bar staff ordered a taxi for us and let us know when it had arrived, details which we greatly appreciated and did not take for granted in a town we hadn't been in before. Thank you to all at the Clarendon- we hope to be back!

“Amazing value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

On TAs reviews and assessments we chose this place from loads of good places in Leamington Spa. We arrived early on Sunday morning and it was empty but we were made to feel welcome. We ordered the Sunday roast but because we were having dinner later we ordered the small portions and they were huge! I had roast pork and VB had roast chicken. The picture says it all! Well done guys, brilliant.

“Great Sunday roast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Visited for the first time after recommendations on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. We had the Sunday roast sharing platter for £20, veg was cooked perfectly, homemade yorkies, wasn't keen on the chicken as prefer it off the bone, and my preference would be for crispier roast pots, but generally it was good and the staff were pleasant.

“best place to eat in leamington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We visited here as a family with 2 young children & the staff were very friendly & said we could sit anywhere.

A lovely range of beers & wines & the food is out of this world!

I had the Mexican burger which was a good quality beef burger, chili beef with chunks of tender steak, sour cream, guacamole, tortilla chips ( handmade) & a onion ring. it was so good, it was a lot of food but it was all such good quality I easily demolished it. My husband had the pulled pork burger which was again amazing & my 2 children had a huge German sausage hot dog. I was such good value for money & burgers are just £5 on a Monday!!

We will be returning when we are next in Leamington!
