The Almanack is a modern British gastropub in the heart of Kenilworth, between Abbey Fields & the High Street. Open seven days a week, they serve breakfast, coffee & cake, lunch, drinks & dinner.
The entrance leads into a comfortable bar & lounge furnished with vintage armchairs and sofas from the 60s and 70s. This is a busy pub where there is a good mixture of clientele from young mums with kids in pushchairs for tea or snacks and older locals in for a drink. Buy a hot drink and you can help yourself to the toast, homemade marmalade and jam from the bar. For lunch & dinner the menu will have British pub classics like free-range sausages, mash and onion gravy, Aberdeenshire steak and chips. Starters from £5 to £13.50 for Sunday roast, Deli boards from £11.50 and one of the few places where they still offer a cheese fondue.
