Lovely meal. Not been before and our gang of 6 was impressed. Had Parlour room with round table to ourselves. Service excellent and food very good. Empty plates all round!
Amazing food, service, staff and ambience. My fave pub in Kenilworth!
Great food and service.
Lovely pub. Service friendly and efficient. Let down by the food. Large portions but didn’t enjoy it.
Lovely food and service. Sat in garden which was lovely
Amazing selection of vegan and plant based options! Very impressed with the quality and selection of food available. Our waiter was so helpful and looked after us so well. Will Definetly be back :)
the food was excellent when it eventually arrived.
1 hr for the starter and 2 hrs for both courses. Table staff were excellent kitchin overwhelmed even on a moderate Monday evening
We ate outside in pleasant courtyard at back of pub.
Pies of the day are to die for!!!!!!
Great meal and evening! Good food provided efficiently!
Have visited the Virgin and Castle for breakfast 4 times recently and have another booking for next week - I think that says it all, love the atmosphere, food and staff, would recommend.
Exceptional service, fantastic staff and great overall ambience
Lovely food and fabulous service. We will definately being going back
We ate outside as the weather was good. The ambience was good, slightly spoiled by one person smoking at another table. The food was good, and ample in quantity. The service was very good, the servers were pleasant and efficient, all in all an enjoyable lunchtime. We will return.
First time and certainly won’t be the last time great food lovely service 👍🏼
Hi the staff were very welcoming but didn’t really know what was available on the menu and didn’t know it was Burger night either. What we had was good but the option for vegetarians was limited as although it’s known for be it’s pies they we’re not available so menus were limited . Sorry guys but you need to have a good supply of what your selling I hope you take this as constructive as I want you to succeed especially after managing your offering through the pandemic
This lovely character pub is a very pleasant place to have a meal and a drink. I put on the booking form that my dad needed access to flat floor and we were appointed a lovely room easily accessed. The order for some reason was mixed up and so it took a long time to be cooked from scratch but staff were lovely about it and it really was delicious. Good prices. Only grumble was parking but we eventually squeezed in outside. Highly recommended.
I think sundays are busy anywhere anyway, but it taken so long to get served for drinks or to be given a menu even.
It taken 30 minutes to be given a menu. the drinks we ordered when we did get served actually came when the starter arrived near on 45 mins sitting down. Then mains were about an hour after that. Put me off going out sundays for dinner
Great food and service, overall an outstanding pub
The food took ages to arrive. If was a bit cold and felt like it might have been forgotten about as the next table who ordered after us received and ate some of their food before ours arrived.
Had to wait ages after asking for the bill, to pay.
We weren’t in a hurry so it was ok.
Nice breakfast , good service and a lovely atmosphere, thank you .
Very well looked after throughout
Great customer service and welcome. Lovely food and it was hot
Fantastic service & best steak I have had ever ! Thank you x
Good was excellent. Not a massive choice, but husband loves a good pie, and rated the steak and root vegetable one he had as "in his top 3," ever. Good to be back
Such helpful bar staff. Friendly, polite and looked after us well. We went to have a drink and watch the football. Everything was great...apart from the footy! 😉
Excellent staff , Excellent Food ,
Excellent night !
Lovely atmosphere and service. Always checking if you wanted another drink. Football was on and there was good crowd all having a laugh. Will definitely be back!
Food delicious and service excellent. Enjoyed the flexibility on the menu too. Value for money overall. We'll be back!
V and C has regained its charm. The menu is not huge, always a good sign. Food was delicious, I had a vegan Thai dish and my companion fishcakes all well presented. Wonderful honeycomb ice-cream. Service from sweet young people was great. Thank you Fletcher, Holly, and was it Georgia? And Harry at the bar.
The food was very well cooked and presented although the menu choice is fairly limited at the moment (a covid thing, I think).
Excellent, timely service, friendly staff and great food.
As always great food and service. We sat in the rear garden which is quiet tranquil and a perfect setting. Keep up the good work all at the ZB& C
Normally very good but food average last night, the beetroot salad was really just leaves with a slice or two of beetroot with very little else, really disappointing. The previous month I had the fish case which was delicious, I do generally love it here since it's change of ownership it's much better
Received a snidy remark from the waitress as well, yes I heard you.
Hopefully next time it's better.
This is my favourite place to go as it is relaxing, the food is great and the staff are friendly and helpful, love it ☺️
Fantastic food and lovely setting. We will be back!
Lovely food and great service- will be back soon for sure!
Thank you for the great service, lovely food, and care with the allergies I have appreciated.....
Staff are great matched by their food and drink. Home from home xx
Really friendly staff, offered to move us to an outside table (the weather was great so we accepted).
Prompt service, lovely beers and an excellent roast dinner (we went for the whole chicken between 2).
Definitely a return visit on the cards and would recommend to anyone.
