Average food and service. Table service was adequate but no special effort made, staff didn't seem very friendly. We had a selection of meals, the one meal we ordered from the specials was disappointing as this was more expensive than regular meals but came as a very small portion with no sauce for the meal and was very dry. The... More

Great hosts, delightful food, Sunday 'roast' for veggies too (imaginatively built around veggie sausage). The place was packed but everything was served hot and on time. Including soft drinks and desserts for four people, the total bill was a ridiculously low £74.02. Quite amazing value for money. Well done The Clarendon Arms.

So what to say about this place? this is now my new regular pub and I have to say I'm absolutely delighted with it, as I know lots of fellow Kenilworth folk are. The service is really good the food (I've eaten a few times) is decent, but it's about the atmosphere, I can't speak highly enough of this place,... More

Very accommodating to my 21 month old son. Most places you play hunt the high chair, waiter bought one straight over. Ordered pate between husband and I to start. Asked for extra toast for my son and plenty came out with extra plate. Sane with mains, but extra veg, potatoes and plate for our son came out without asking. Roast... More

Had two meals here recently and enjoyed both. The menu is fair value and imaginative and quality of food was matched by great cask ale. The pub has a number of rooms and is connected to the restaurant next door. Even on a Monday night it's ticking over nicely It's a good location too, just close to the Castle

We were let down originally by another place but found this pub had a function room and could accomadate 16 people upstairs. It was very busy for a sunday lunch but the menu was extensive, we all chose a sunday roast. I thought the service would suffer as a result of being busy but it didnt, all the meals came... More

Seven of us went for an pre booked evening celebratory meal. The table was set in a corner with very little room which necessitated staff passing meals over the table as they could not access three of the table settings. The meal was very average. The staff did very well in serving in such a limited space. Will hesitate before... More

Renewed our acquaintance with this delightful pub/restaurant last Saturday afternoon and, after a few pints of the well kept Purity UBU bitter, were persuaded by the landlord to have steak and chips. A superb recommendation and one of the best steaks in a long time ! Top quality Chateauneuf du Pape to accompany; all outstanding ! And the apple pie... More

It was fine, typical pup type place, food was fine at a reasonable price, although i'd thought not enough food, i had the 6oz steak and all it came with was chips couple mushrooms and a grilled tomato, i normally do not eat grilled tomatoes.

Well kept beer,friendly service and the fish and chips were good.Think the chips are not home made which is a shame as they were slightly better than the ones we have had in the past.Always a lovely atmosphere.
