SquareMeal Review of The College Arms

Originally owned by Henry VIII, this 16th-century coaching inn, south of Stratford-upon-Avon, is these days owned by Steve Love, who some locals might know from his first venture, Love’s Restaurant, in nearby Leamington Spa. He’s transformed this local boozer into not one, but two exciting restaurants. First up, there’s Henry’s Bar, a good spot for a jolly lunch or dinner. It may have a pubby feel – stone floors, weathered beams, heavy wooden tables – but the food is not the usual pub grub. Even a simple sounding gammon & eggs, the house special, gets the retro-classic treatment with meat slow-cooked to melt-in-the-mouth tenderness. Less rustic dishes appear too, like beetroot-marinated salmon with cauliflower a la grecque, or chateaubriand for two. A second restaurant, Love’s, is in a bijou dining room. It’s open Friday & Saturday nights only & offers a more formal dining experience via seven-course sets that could run to scallop, frog’s legs & parsley jus, or ox cheek & bavette steak. Accommodation is also available.
