Leamington food and drink review: 44 Cafe Bar Bistro is ‘a recommended port of call’ Read the review article here!

Oliver Williams visited the Clarendon Street bar and eatery’s new menu and found the food to be tasty and the staff friendly and attentive making the venue a recommended port of call to grab a bite to eat if on an evening out in the town centre.

Nestled on the edge of Leamington’s central suburban area and the heart of the town’s retail and nighttime economy, 44 Cafe Bar Bistro is a highly recommended port of call to grab a bite to eat if you’re on an evening out in the town centre.

The Clarendon Street venue, previously Case Valle, is under new ownership by Gavin Leach and Rob Singleton of the Windmill Hill Brewing Company, who have put their own stamp on the business to convert it to a vibrant café in the daytime, bistro into the evening and high quality drinks spot at night.

Windmill Hill sells its ales at the venue and I was impressed by the samples I tried of their crisp lager, smooth IPA and punchy porter.

Having wet our appetites with succulent king prawns and crispy calamari from the small plates menu we next tucked into a vegan burger and fried chicken burger.

Both were very tasty, juicy and not stodgy in the way burgers can be.

For dessert, we had a delightfully sweet and light biscotti cheesecake.
