Whether you're visiting Shakespeare County to bone up on the Bard or studying at the university, there's no shortage of restaurants in Warwick and the surrounding areas. This corner of the Midlands is packed with eateries of all kinds, from rustic trattoria and Greek tavernas to innovative gastropubs, classic curry houses and a few places that offer something a little bit off the gastronomic beaten track. Find them all and book a table today by checking out Quandoo's selection of restaurants in Warwick.
If you're studying hard at the University of Warwick, restaurants near your halls of residence won't be hard to find. Leamington Spa has plenty of excellent eateries near the campus and the major residences, with options from all over the world. There are some friendly Italian places which serve up a mean pasta carbonara to keep you going into the small hours, or if you're out in town with friends, there are curry houses that can feed a small army, as well as brasseries that know how to cook up quintessential British dishes like fish and chips or steak and kidney pie.
Back in Warwick itself, the high-end gourmet dining scene is booming, so if you live in the city and feel like splurging on some top-class food, there will be plenty of places to choose. For instance, you can head to 15th century coaching inns in Bridge End for a three-course Sunday dinner with all the trimmings, or head over to Packmores for a top of the line Indian meal. These Indian restaurants in Warwick go well beyond tikka and vindaloo, bringing lesser known specialities like Chennai salmon sambar to the attention of Midlands foodies and providing an unforgettable dining experience.
Or maybe you're staying in town as part of a Shakespeare tour? With Stratford-upon-Avon just a few miles down the road, Warwick restaurants provide a handy way to end your day of literary tourism by booking a curry house table and chatting about the stories you've heard. Or you could stop off on the way back from Stafford in villages like Barford, which host some of the best restaurants the Warwick area has to offer. Grab a gourmet burger or a perfectly-cooked steak to bookend a trip to the birthplace of your literary hero.
If you live in the Birmingham area and fancy a trip out of the big city, you can easily blend a little sightseeing with fine food at Warwick's restaurants. The city has plenty to see, with its famous Medieval castle, the Jephson Gardens and the Victorian household exhibits at the St John's House Museum. After seeing all of it, set aside a couple of hours before your train to savour a finely spiced murgh massala or steak frites at one of the Warwick restaurants on Quandoo.
Warwick's restaurants are part of a burgeoning local food scene in the area and make great use of Warwickshire's produce. Anyone who has been down to the farmers market in the city square every Saturday knows how fresh the county's spinach, carrots, herbs, broccoli and soft fruit can be, or the succulent texture of its steaks and the rich meatiness of its pies. Find out what the town's finest chefs can do by booking a table at Warwick restaurants which specialise in seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients.
