There wasn't anything that particularly stood out. Food was nice enough but it's a little on the pricy side for the quantity. Lovely atmosphere; it was relatively busy even for a Thursday evening. The service was pleasant but the wait staff weren't attentive. We were only asked for a drink once, then our party had to ask! Maybe the service... More

Once a year a few us old mates from schooldays meet up round about Xmas have a few drinks and follow up with a curry. This we changed the format to a 'Disappear Afternoon' where we would have a great lunch, great time chatting, catching up and not rushing. All in a great relaxing original cellar restaurant surroundings. Couple of... More

A lovely restaurant with a great ambiance. The food is inventive and well prepared and served by friendly and attentive staff. The house wines are very good. I used a voucher but, unusually for me, I would happily return and pay full price,

I ate here with colleagues one evening whilst working for the week in Leamington Spa. The atmosphere is informal and cosy yet lively. There was a good selection of food and drinks, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Not thinking too much, I ordered a burger and had one of the best burgers I have ever tasted !... More

I visit this restaurant fairly regularly. I went for dinner last night with a friend who was visiting from out of the area. The food was excellent with a very attentive service. I would recommend this restaurant.

The meal we ate in Wildes was the best we've had in 2016. The food was SO good! Crab aranchini and scallops to start, chicken and seabass main then chocolate brandy cake to share for desert. Beautiful flavours and presentation. The restaurant itself is quirky but effortless with mix/match furniture, soft music and fairy lights. The prices match the quality... More

I've been twice, both times for business dinners. This is good, high-quality British food, served in an establishment where people seem to work hard to ensure their guests are enjoying themselves and their meals. They usually have good specials. Will be back.

Wildes is an absolutely lovely spot. It is off the beaten path in Leamington and is a nice escape. The food is simple and absolutely delicious. It's always a great sign when a simple dish (salmon with asparagus and mashed potatoes) tastes wonderful. There is an excellent selection of wine as well. The atmosphere is cosy and intimate. There is... More
