The Virgins & Castle is the oldest pub in Kenilworth and full of character and charm of 16th century Warwickshire.

With a warm welcome we aim to create a place where locals and visitors to Kenilworth can enjoy a great selection of drinks and fantastic service.

With a great range of beers, ales and spirits as well as our temperance bar of non-alcoholic drinks we have four cosy snugs where you can enjoy a quiet drink.

It has the best vegan food of anywhere in the district. I have eaten there many times and keep going back. The people who work there are lovely, the wine and the ambiance is good. A couple of times, we haven't been 100% happy with a dish and both times, the team insist on taking it back, replacing and and taking it off the bill. I recommend it highly.

The roast beef was not tender and you needed considerable to be able to cut it. In fact my fellow diner had to leave most of hers. Service was not as attentive and we were left having to for utensils and condiments. Not a good experience I’m afraid.

We had a very tasty chicken leek and chorizo pie followed by rhubarb crumble and custard. Nice selection of ales, friendly helpful staff with excellent service in a nice traditionally quaint pub.

Proper decent pub and great food, we’d been disappointed earlier in the week with another former stalwart Kenilworth pub so this was a huge relief to know that some things remain as good as we remember
