Having been to The Clarendon twice in one week on the lead up to Christmas. I can only give positive feedback on both the food and service we received. Both parties were of around 30 people, there was a good selection on the Christmas Menu, well priced and the food was to a high standard on both occasions. We will... More

I live in Kenilworth and absolutely loved the clarendons food. Simple but the best pub food around. Unfortunately since visiting a few times over Christmas I have to report that the food is letting them down. Such simple things that made them great seems to have been forgotten, like their home made chips or the beautiful side salad they would... More

After my 'Not Great' review in October 16 we received a response from the pub manager, apologising and asking us to make direct contact, which we did. The outcome of that contact was another apology and an offer of a complimentary 3 course meal so that we could try the Clarendon, again. Cannot fault the customer service. We took up... More

This was a work event, we went here for our Christmas lunch. The food was nice, the staff were friendly. We needed this to fit in our 2 hour slot and and they got us in and out in our time requirements but without feeling rushed. The pub is sited across the road from Kenilworth Castle which is always worth... More

We arrived at kenilworth around 11.30am starving. Much to our delight the staff were all ready to go and willing to serve us an early lunch :) Really lovely sandwiches and ciabatta served with hot chips, salad all next to the burning fire. Just what we needed! Thanks to the team for a lovely visit! :)

We came across this place as a venue for a special family event. The food was great, as was the choice of beer and drinks, but what sets it apart is the team. It's not the biggest venue but that's not the point, we will definitely be going back next time we want to treat ourselves. The bar and seating... More

Kenilworth is exactly halfway between mine and my sister's house. We wanted to meet up for lunch so chose the Clarendon Arms. We arrived before 12 on the Sunday and the pub was nice and quiet. It didn't stay that way for long. Its clearly a popular place to eat. We ordered one sunday lunch, 3 steaks and a kids... More

dropped in here by chance, as it shares a car park with "The Queen at the castle" and we did intend to go in there. but the Clarendon looked more inviting through the window. just had the mains of rump steak. cooked to perfection for both my husband (rare) and me (medium to well done) good service and lovely atmosphere....
