A warm friendly welcome, lovely atmosphere and great quality food and drink.
My favorite pub in Kenilworth!
Great Saturday afternoon with great food and drinks. The awful weather doesn’t really matter as everything is done to keep people comfortable and happy. Fab atmosphere as always!
Got the best table under a heater and large cover so even though it was raining I was very warm and dry, service was fast and there’s a large list of drinks to try - limited food menu at the moment I think but lots of choice I even tried a vegan burger as I had the beef burger last time and it was really good! Recommend the black pudding bubble and squeak and the brownie
Very good service and nice food, it was a bit noisy outside next to the road but there’s not much to be done about that at the moment
Great place to be! Food, ambience and service wise, will definitely go back!
We didn’t eat. Just drinks. Well looked after, nice atmosphere. Staff very attentive.
Will be back
Brilliant service provided by the two outdoor staff - very fast & efficient.
Food was very impressive - we’ll definitely be going back for more.
A good overall experience. The quality of the food was good and service was excellent. My only observation was that the cost of the food was a bit on the high side.
Had a really nice meal in the garden, staff were great, food was great, drink was great, will definitely come here again.
Service was fantastic. Kept comfortable with heaters which was a worry due to weather. Food great and a nice portion at a reasonable price. Would highly recommend.
We enjoyed watching the world go round at the front of the pub, and the food was good.
Both the food and service were outstanding; what more could you want?!
The menu is excellent and catered particularly well for my friend, who is gluten intolerant. The staff could not have been more helpful; a huge thumbs up for Chris and the team. We will be back again soon. Thank you.
I've never had a BBQ cauliflower steak before, but I'm sold! It was delicious. This pub has excellent vegetarian options. The service is also friendly and attentive.
Great job, managing outdoors in the rain.
Considering the problems associated with covid regulations and cold, wet, weather the establishment went to great lengths to mitigate the situation. Enabling us to enjoy a delightful lunch,which was exquisitely prepared and served by cheerful, helpful staff.
I very rarely write reviews but had to say something about the wonderful welcome we received at the Virgins and Castle. My husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary and when we mentioned this in conversation to the staff they responded wonderfully. They gave us an anniversary card, offered a complementary drink and basically made the occasion extra special. The food was excellent and the service amazing. Thank you! We will return for sure.
Really pleasant staff and beautiful location
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a great 5-star review Gary. Really appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon.
We enjoyed a lovely Sunday Lunch. The staff were friendly and looked after us well. They made a fuss of our 2 year old granddaughter too.
The puddings were yummy but the cheese option was very overpriced for the small amount of cheese that was delivered. We will definitely go again but won’t be ordering the cheese again!
What a great place to meet friends and family. The food was excellent :)
Staff were very attentive and friendly. Beer was great, we opted for Sunchaser. Food was really tasty and brought out to us quickly.
All in all we all had a great time here and will be visiting again very soon!
