Steakhouse- Fox & Vivian
32 Clarendon Ave, Leamington Spa CV32 4RZ (http://www.foxandvivian.com/)
Another wonderful joint for steaks and burgers in Leamington, this pub prepares some excellent food for the beef eaters. With locally sourced fresh meats, their steaks and burgers are to die for. The garlic bread with cheese and chorizo or the BBQ Ribs are classics and are great picks as starters. From their whopping 13 burger and 7 steak menu, no burger beats the massive 14 oz Bacon Wrapped Juicy Lucy. If you’ve got a smaller appetite, the Wagyu Beef Burger is almost as good. Any of their steaks with peppercorn sauce are a great combination to go with.
It is located at a 4-minute walk from the Upper Parade Bus Stop on Clarendon Avenue. Reservations should be done well in advance normally.

Parsis boasts a very retro Indian type ambience, very different from the regular curry houses in the UK. With a great range of cocktails blended with Indian flavours, their masala chai is as authentic as on the streets of Mumbai. Their Vada Pau and Samosas, which are staple Indian snacks are flavourful and light starters to have. The Sali Boti, a rich mutton curry is the standout dish at Parsis. Apart from this, the Chicken Berry Biryani and Kebabs are great options for the mains. It is well priced in terms of portion sizes.
This curry house is well located on the Parade right next to the Upper Parade bus stop in Leamington.

An intimate place for those Christmas dinners, located in South Leam, Momenti is a small family run restaurant serving some amazing Italian food. Their garlic bread is served in a unique manner with toasted bread and butter with a roasted knob of garlic which tastes extremely fresh and abundant in flavour. Their meaty mains are great value for money but one dish, which is the reason to dine at Momenti (which probably is my favourite pasta in the world) is the crepe tagliatelle with mushroom which is tagliatelle pasta made from crepe batter served with a rich creamy mushroom sauce (The one you see in the image). Being a big tiramisu fan, I would recommend trying the one at Momenti.
It is located at 9 Regent Place at a 2-minute walk from the Parish Church bus stop. Getting a table is definitely quite a challenge, as their capacity is quite limited and they’re not open on Sundays and Mondays, so again, do book in advance.
