Leamington Spa Gastro Pub - The Star & Garter

At The Star & Garter – a Classic Warwickshire Gastropub


We serve the good stuff. All our meat is British and of the highest quality, from Aubrey Allen. This eighty year-old Warwickshire butcher supplies many of Britain’s finest restaurants as well as holding HM The Queen’s Royal Warrant. Our steaks are from Britain’s finest (increasingly rare) beef herds, 28-day dry-aged for stupendous flavour. Our Cotswold White chickens are free-range, as are our eggs, pork and ice-cream. Our lamb is Cornish. Our fish is native where possible, and we follow the ever-changing advice on sustainability.


Our head chef and his skilled brigade devise our seasonal menus and a range of tempting daily specials (check out our blackboards around the pub!).  As well as celebrating our increasingly-vibrant British food culture, the focus on seasonal ingredients means we buy the best stuff when it’s at the best price. This way we keep prices sensible even though we’re buying top quality ingredients.

Fresh Food All Day

Our menu is available throughout the day, if you are just dropping in for a drink but feel peckish then choose a couple of small pots of freshly made food or make up your own deli board. Or if you are hungry for more, you can tuck into a full three courses, choosing from our top quality pub classics, superfood dishes and gastronomic evening specials.

There’s also an exciting Daily Deal menu from noon until 7pm and Brunch (with plenty of avocado) at weekends. One thing that isn’t changing is our Sunday Best menu – Sunday Roast the way it’s meant to be.


We don’t have a children’s menu, because we think they should have the opportunity to eat food that’s as good as yours, but our chefs are happy to make smaller portions or simplified versions of anything on our menu.


We have well-kept real ales on tap – Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale and UBU – and Continental beers and World Lagers.

We are serious about our spirits too. Tanqueray Gin and Ketel One Vodka are our current favourites for pouring. Or try the range of premium gins, vodkas and aperitifs from our drinks list. Enjoy a large one served as a Grand Gin with plenty of ice, fruit, juniper berries and a choice of premium tonic waters. We also make a great selection of classic cocktails.


Our wine is chosen by Jo Eames, co-owner of Peach, from three multi award-winning suppliers, Tanner’s of Shrewsbury, Liberty Wines & Boutinot. Each has its own specialities, allowing us to pack our list with a great range of top quality and interesting wines. Let us help you choose something delicious to match your mood or your food.

Hooray for Winter

Winter is a wonderful time to eat hearty and comforting food. Our beef is British, grass-fed and dry-aged for unmatched flavour. All our chicken, eggs and pork are free-range. Our lamb is Cornish and most of our native fish is landed from coastal day-boats. We always serve the good stuff – cooked from scratch by real chefs.
