The Lord Leycester Hotel, Warwick, Restaurant Review
PUBLISHED: 17:05 04 February 2010 | UPDATED: 15:15 20 February 2013
Ideally situated right in the centre of Warwick, but only a short drive from the M40, the purpose-built Lord Leycester Hotel is equally handy as a basecamp for business, sightseeing or pleasure.
The hotel boasts three very different eating areas. Breakfast and light meals are served in The Squires Buttery, the Stratford Bar is popular with smokers, but the main event is dinner in The Knights Restaurant.
Modern British cooking is the order of the day. Open your account with prawn, smoked salmon and crabmeat roulade with vierge dressing or asparagus spears with hollandaise sauce before moving on to fillet steak on a breaded Brie croton with red wine and Stilton sauce or sea bass with a pine nut and basil crust on a red pepper, fennel and herb cream sauce. As a finale, consider bread-and-butter pudding with apricot and cinnamon or Champagne and raspberry torte.
