Restaurant 23 & Morgan's Bar

34 Hamilton Terrace, ROYAL LEAMINGTON SPA, CV32 4LY

3 rosettes

The white-painted building that houses Restaurant 23 & Morgan's Bar is a handsome one which fits in well with its Georgian and Regency neighbours in Leamington Spa, but it actually dates from the Victorian period. The portico entrance and neat paint job make for an inviting frontage. Once you're across the threshold things get rather more 21st century with some contemporary design elements in the bar including splashes of bold colours on the armchairs and sofas. Stick around for a classic cocktail or one of the house's own, and note afternoon tea is also a popular affair. The patio offers alfresco opportunities. The restaurant itself combines old and new to create a sophisticated space that suits the fine-dining approach in the kitchen, while the service could be a little more on the ball. The kitchen's output matches the modern mood with dishes offered via ? la carte and tasting menus (there's a great value set lunch menu, too). A meal begins with a little freebie nibble such as an oxtail and potato number with horseradish foam (served in smart glass) and excellent home-made rolls. Cornish crab salad is an attractive looking first course, with chilli, mango and brown crab croquettes, while main course barbecue monkfish is partnered with Cumbrian ham and new season asparagus. Alternatively, dry-aged fillet of beef comes with triple-cooked chips and b?arnaise sauce, and the vegetarian option might be butternut squash and tallegio pithivier. Finish with an indulgently rich chocolate delice with roasted pear and popcorn ice cream, or the somewhat lighter vanilla pannacotta with poached Yorkshire rhubarb and gingerbread crumb.
