Housed in a striking period building, the Leycester oozes charm from the moment you walk in. When Arthur Tyack created The Lord Leycester Hotel in 1926 he wanted it to be the best hotel in Warwick and general manager Carl Fox and his team have exactly the same goal. They positively encourage you to relax and sup a pint of real ale or savour a glass of wine from the extensive list in the cosy Stratford Bar before accompanying you to Jesters Brasserie where you can indulge in an array of dishes guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning of diners.
The Sunday carvery here is a bit of an institution, so if you feel in the mood for a traditional roast, drop by at the weekend. Alternatively, you can try starters such as a salmon, coriander and red chilli fishcake and Brie wedges in a herb crust with redcurrant and port sauce or main courses like slow braised lamb shank set on parsnip and potato mash, steak, kidney and ale pie or mussels in Thai curry sauce. Finish your meal with banoffee pie or a chocolate and cappuccino mousse and you will retire a very happy customer - thank goodness you don't have to go far.
