Eat & Drink

When it comes to places to eat around Shakespeare's England, there's a lot on offer. From the conventional to the eccentric, from vegan to vegetarian, breakfast and brunch to Sunday lunch: we know you will find something truly tempting to tuck into.

With a wide selection of restaurants for every taste and budget, enjoy a delicious exploration of Warwickshire’s restaurants, cafes and bars. From fine dining at the elegant RSC’s Rooftop Restaurant, and the Michelin-starred, The Cross in Kenilworth, through to relaxed wholesome pub food from one of Lovely Pubs or Peach Pubs venues. We have plenty to please your appetite.

Warwickshire is also well known for its locally produced artisan food, farm shops delicatessens and a unique cat café. You can indulge yourself with a wide variety of lush meals offering unique surroundings and to enjoy a drink within.

On long Summer days and nights many people gather in casual conversation to enjoy locally produced beer, cider, gin, rum and whiskey along the riverside, with a background of live music. And if you want to skip straight to dessert, go for two scoops of creamy gelato and a wide selection of waffles at Hoorays in Stratford upon Avon. Or perhaps some locally made fudge, chocolates and other treats in Henley in Arden to satisfy your sweet tooth.

We have numerous food and drink festivals throughout the year, including the legendary Asparagus Festival at the Fleece in and our lovely gin festival at Billesley Manor.

Make sure you keep an eye on our events calendar. It's busy year-round with fantastic food events, from pop-ups to themed events.
