Came to Leamington Spa for the weekend and booked this in advance as my other half is Gluten free and we find it hard to find decent places to eat.
Let me tell you the food service atmosphere was FANTASTIC! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Very disappointed we couldn’t have the Sunday lunch the next day!
Totally recommend!

We went for a Sunday roast, which according to reviews were supposed to be excellent. They didn’t disappoint! First meal out of lockdown was worth it. Good COVID measures in place and the staff were friendly and helpful. Will be booking again as soon as we can find some availability!

Food was excellent. Had to wait 20 minutes after our table was booked before we were seated. Wouldn’t usually mind but had somewhere else booked after for drinks.

Star & Garter
Responded on 21 April 2021

Oh no- I am sorry about that. We will look into the timings again in between tables. If a guest is late for their table it can have a huge knock on effect for the rest of the service. We will look at how to manage this a bit better. Thanks for your feedback, and we are really pleased you enjoyed your meal. Come back soon!

Very attentive service, good control over the Covid stuff. We all had elements of our Sunday lunch that were disappointing - the Yorkshire's were almost burnt and the roast potatoes were tough. Good veg and meat though - even if quite stingy portions of the latter. And the person who had the veggie Wellington found that the contents of the Wellington were pretty much the other veg on the plate!

Thanks for the review and the appreciation of our Covid efforts- its been a strange time to work in hospitality. Sorry to hear our roasts were not up to their unusual high standard, that is such a shame- we are famous for them! Can we invite you back?

Always loved Sunday dinner here and been several times. This occasion was sadly disappointing with food being quite cold and potatoes over done to the point of some weren’t edible. The service was also quite slow but it was very busy on this occasion.
The vegetable Wellington was lovely but incredibly small for £13.95 which was also disappointing.
Hoping it was a one off!

Staff were very nice but we ordered ribeye steaks & they were terrible-we complained & were offered free dessert which we didn't want so we asked for the cost of one of the steaks to be removed as they were £23 each. Very disappointing-everything else was pretty good but not brilliant. It's a nice welcoming busy place & I like the staff here.

Date night !!
Throughly enjoyed our meals, I had the special steak with cornbread and it was yummy, the steak was cooked to perfection!
He had the pork and although he left the slaw he was very happy with it. The fondant pudding was spoon 🥄 licking good.
I didn’t care very much for the black pepper in my gins but as soon as I got them out I drank with delight, the orange gin was my favourite for the evening!
Overall a very good date night at an excellent place to eat and drink !
