The Plough - Eathorpe: Try a Steak
Traditional looking English pub that specialises in “Specials”, which may include ostrich or venison. Local produce is used whenever possible, the meat from Kenilworth, the fish from Coventry with a delivery of vegetables every morning.
Favorite Dish: Any of the steak courses
Piccolino's: Quality Italian
Piccolino's is a long established, good value, and quality Italian restaurant just off from the Parish church on Spenser Street. The vista isn't so great, looking out onto the unstylish warehouse that is now the Mirage nightclub, but it does neighbour some wonderful and genuine period buildings, with genuine timber frames. The food, however, is top notch for the price, and Piccolino's is one of the best restaurants on the south side of the river.
Tarsus is a bit of a legend in Leamington, and for me I have never found a better kebab vendor in the world. I don't know what it is they put in the kebab meat, but it smells wonderful, tastes great, and is addictive. The chargrilled Cypriot style doner kebabs are the only ones I have ever been able to eat sober. They don't just make kebabs, though, and the family run business has a whole range of mains and side dishes that are authentically Cypriot. They do great meals, with large servings, for a very low price, and cater for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Of course, it is very oily, but it is fast food after all.

The Lounge: Great place to Lounge
Great place to chill, superb atmosphere and the music relaxing, the beers are excellent if not slightly above average prices (you pay for what you get) The variety of food is second to none along with the vast amounts on the plate.
Favorite Dish: Cod in beer batter, served with a chilli sauce and home-made chunky chips;
Oscar's Bistro: A Touch of France
Oscars Bistro is a little bit of France in the middle of Leamington Spa, offering a rich selection of Gaelic delights. The laid back feel is charming but it's the ambience and café culture that makes Oscars really shine. Tuesday is Auberge night where a single choice three course meal is only £12.50 a head.
Favorite Dish: 2 Courses for £16.00
3 Courses for £20.00
Aberdeenshire Steak with Cafe de Paris Butter

Piccolino’s Pizzeria: Pizza at Piccolino’s
Piccolino’s Pizzeria is the best Italian restaurant in town. Great food and super service in a relaxed atmosphere and all at excellent value. The restaurant has recently undergone an expansion and makeover so it is now more spacious and airy. The Pizzeria and Restaurant is well known across the region for their fabulous (fresh) pizza bases, pasta and seafood. Sicilian cooking that really is good enough to eat.
Favorite Dish: Garlic Bread followed by Half Spit Roast Chicken or choose from the 15 pasta dishes or 21 pizzas.
The Red Lion - Hunningham: Sunday Carvery
Built in the 1600's and extended later it has always been a pub and rumoured to have it's own ghost. The Red Lion is a family friendly pub, with a mini adventure playground and the river at the edge of the pub garden. Does get very busy in the summer and getting a drink at the crowded bar can take some time
Favorite Dish: Sunday Carvery
Pump Rooms Cafe: Afternoon tea anyone?
Relaxed and airy self service cafe in the historical Pump Rooms/museum building.
Not the cheapest, but delicous teas, coffees, cakes and savouries, as well as wines and beers etc.
It is officially a 'patisserie and bistro' but I'm not sure it's really that sophisticated and it's more a snack place, although they do some tasty lunches.
There is also a lovely sculpture which incorporates the spa water itself (and you can try it if you're BRAVE!)
On a sunny day, sit out on the terrace overlooking the Pump Room Gardens.
Nice place to sit and read...pop into the museum afterwards...
Favorite Dish: Tea and cake!

More of a snack bar really: The Aviary
This is more of a snack bar in a very ornate building. Although it is called the Aviary, I did not see any birds there! There was quite a wide selection from memory of things like sandwiches, soft drinks and chocolate bars.

Café Rouge: Crocque at the Cafe
Café Rouge is about as perfect an example of cafe culture as you can think of. Food is gloriously French, coffee, tea and wine are as at home on the menu as all the beers and the outside tables in Summer can make you wonder whether you really are in England. A great place to people watch.
Favorite Dish: The Crocque Madame and Monsieur are particular treats.
Bar Forty Four (44): All Bar the Rabble
Bar and light restaurant with live jazz each Sunday, good business lunch menu and well located, just far enough from the centre of town to prevent the bar being too boisterous at weekends.
Favorite Dish: Modern Bistro Style Food
Benjamin Satchwell: Breakfast at Benjamin’s
This is a large popular town centre pub. It has a wide selection of food that is served all day. It stocks all the usual top brand labels and offers them at JD Wetherspoon value for money prices. Being a recognised 'Cask Marque' accredited pub there are always 6 or 7 traditional ales available at any time.
Sunday to Thursday: 9 am to midnight
Friday to Saturday: 9 am to 1 am
Favorite Dish: The Benjamin Satchwell is ranked one of the top five places by the Leamington Spa Courier to enjoy a first-class breakfast.
Two of the most popular dishes on the breakfast menu are the traditional breakfast and the farmhouse breakfast.
The traditional breakfast, popular during the week, features a fried egg, bacon, sausage, baked beans, hash brown, a large flat mushroom and half a grilled tomato.
At weekends, the farmhouse breakfast is a favourite with customers, offering two fried eggs, two rashers of bacon, two sausages, baked beans, three hash brown, a large flat mushroom and half a grilled tomato, served with two slices of toast.

Bombay Tandoori: North Side: Indian
There's a lot of Indian restaurants in Leamington, and many of them cater for the drunks who pour out of the pubs late into the night. The quality can often be a bit dubious, as their customers aren't always discerning. But Bombay Tandoori is a restaurant aiming a higher, and from my experience the quality meets that.
You can still enjoy a beer, and it has that traditional Indian feel to it that you will get elsewhere for less money, but the food and experience is worth the mid-range pricing.
Five Rivers Restaurant: South Side: Indian
This is Indian food with a difference. You still get the same taste, music and friendly service, but the restaurant is attempting a sleeker, more modern experience than your typical cosy Indian, with its tinny speakers and garish decor. The menu is still traditional, but you will find a few inventive ideas here. But the best thing is the quality: excellent Indian food. Might be a bit pricier than other places, but you won't find many drunks in here either. Quite family friendly too.
