Enjoying stunning views of the historic Kenilworth Castle, The Queen & Castle is a restored country pub serving a selection of gourmet recipes. Refurbished to contemporary standards, this gastro pub features a wineglass chandelier in its bar area, and a dining space which combines sleek composition with traditional British design.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Queen & Castle restaurant menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Queen & Castle bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Queen & Castle in Kenilworth is a mere 2-minute walk from Kenilworth Castle.

    Despite the restaurant being very busy on Mother's Day. The waiter was very attentive. The salmon cooked to perfection though I would have loved to have a bigger portion of veg with the dish. Cheese board generous serving of crackers and for me a nice size portion of cheese. You need to feel comfortable with lots of children around.

    We were staying in Kenilworth for the weekend and decided to have a Sunday roast. After looking on my phone we found the queen and castle. The booking was simple. We booked for 7.30, on arrival we were shown to our table and then told no roast's were available so we decided not to stay. Very disappointed as they serve till 9.30

    I am sorry to report it was a complete disaster. 1 starter arrived quickly and the rest followed 45 minutes later as the waitress forgot to put it through. We were not attended to like the other guess appeared to be the staff should have noticed earlier. A party which arrived after us had finished their dessert by the time we got our main which was another hour from the entree. Not at any point did the staff asked us how our evening or dinner was until I asked for the bill. we asked for some tap water and condiments with our main meal but got that delivered at our table at the same time as our bill. During our 140 min stay we were offered to order some drinks on our arrival. at no other point was this option offered during the rest of our visit. This appeared to be in isolation as other guests were flowing with drink orders. We felt totally ignored throughout the meal. My daughters birthday celebrations ended on this poor experience. I have discussed my experience with my friends and family and would not recommend your establishment. I was really embarrassed to raise a complaint to The manager apologised and didn't know what what else to say. I have never had such an appalling experience, an evening which should have been a joyous event turned out to be a bad memory best forgotten.
