user reviews of the Leopard Inn, Bishops Tachbrook

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Yesterday lunchtime was very busy with most people sitting outside and so there was a 40 minute wait for our main courses (paremsan crusted hake). Fortunately, the mezze board starter came out quickly enough as did the drinks (Birra Moretti for me). As Warwick Gates and Bishop's Tachbrook converge, this pub does not quite have the rural location it once had but it's still pleasant enough although some better screening of the car park would add to the al fresco experience. Wye Valley Butty Bach, HPA and London Pride were the 3 untried real ales.

We went to The Leopard last weekend and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. It has been OPEN for just over a month after a total refit to the interior - very well done. Lots of separate dining areas and it was good to sit and chat at the long bar before eating - not many places seem to have these nowadays - and my husband enjoyed the Abbot!
The food is superb and reasonably priced for such pleasant surroundings. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well. I'd love to go in summer as there's lots of outdoor space too.
Well done The Leopard - if only we didn't live in Devon as I'd happily use it as our local.

Now called the Revolver. We called in the other night for the first time in decades. And walked straight out again. The last thing you're going to do in there is enjoy a comfortable pint.

Whatever it is, it isn't a pub.

The Leopard Inn at Bishops Tachbrook no longer exists.
It ceased to be a pub in October 2006.

Used to be a cracking country pub with good food and ale. Recently renovated and turned into a shiny bar that is completely out-of-place in the village setting. When I went in shortly after the refit, they had no cask conditioned beers on. Didn't stay to find out what the food was like and haven't been back since.

I pity the people of Bishop's Tachbrook who have lost a cracking local.

We came here for a wake for friends and family of my nan and had asked them to lay on a buffet for this. The food was really good and tasty and freshly prepared. It wasn't brought out till we arrived and was hot so you know it hadn't been sat on the side for ages. The staff were really good and friendly.
Its in a nice location and is spacious and nice inside. Nice beer garden and plenty of parking space

Set in a lovely rural location, the Leopard is very nice inside and has a very welcoming lounge area near the restaurant back room, with the most comfortable leather sofas! The Sunday menu mains were local Lighthorne Lamb roast with red wine, Beef roast with red wine, Pork roast with apple and sultana sauce, Chicken roast including some black pudding (which went very well), Beer Batter Cod and chips and the only vegetarian option, some sort of vegetable and goats� cheese tart.

We ordered the Lamb, the Pork, the Chicken roasts, which all came with plenty of roast potatoes, and we were even asked if we wanted Yorkshire pudding even though we weren�t having beef (we all did!). The roasts were all excellent, with mine being the best roast dinner I have ever had out. We also had the vegetarian option, which was most tasty, and a half portion of fish and chips for the little one in our group, which seemed to go down well.

For dessert two of us had the red fruit soup with vanilla ice-cream, which was the fruitiest thing I have ever tasted; the richness of the soup was incredible, and the flecks of vanilla seed in the ice cream gave it an extra lift. The Chocolate delice with cherry compote was ordered on behalf of the little one, but we all ended up having a try as the chocolate mousse element was absolutely divine, and perhaps slightly much for a two-and-a-half year-old, which I suspect was well known when mother ordered it!

Service was discreet yet attentive, from friendly staff who also interacted well with the very social little one, who was made very welcome. Although the prices are not cheap (�11 for all mains, even the vegetarian), this was one of the best meals out I have ever had, and the whole table was all smiles and favourable comments for the rest of the afternoon. So the whole experience was good value for money. We will definitely be going back for another visit to check out the weekday menu.

Visited 03 Sep 05, as a pit stop before watching the Mighty Quins. 4 real ales available, we settled for Badger Tanglefoot which was in excellent condition. At first glance �5 for a sandwich seemed excessive, but when it arrived, the quality meant that it was value for money. I couldn't comment about it's suitability for a night out, but it was exactly what we were looking for at the time.

Excellent and friendly service with a good and interesting selection of food, which is fairly priced for the quality you are receiving. Reasonably child friendly since they have a beer garden that is fenced off. Beer is kept well and they have a good selection of real ales

This is a large food orientated pub with a pleasant enough beer garden close to Leamington but surrounded by fields. The food is good but fairly expensive for these parts (mainly �10-�12). The beer included a Hook Norton seasonal beer, Broadside and Abbot yesterday all well kept.
