Wilde's Wine Bar & Restaurant
Independent since 1976
Wilde's welcomes you from midday to midnight,
Tuesday to Saturday,
serving lunch between 12.30pm and 2.30pm
and dinner between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.
On Sundays and Mondays,
we open for private parties, gigs
and special events by arrangement.
Wilde's is an independent, family business which has occupied the same Regency basement since 1976. We remain true to our founding principles:
There are fifty or more of them, twenty or so by the glass. The emphasis is Old World, but the New World is more than adequately represented by major players such as de Gras from Chile and boutique wines such as Crossroads from New Zealand. In addition, we now offer a couple of bag-in-box wines on tap - offering great quality at a lower price, with minimal environmental impact. Less glass, and lower transport costs, for example.
And good value. We offer fine dining without stuffiness or pretension. We source fine ingredients from free range and organic suppliers wherever possible, cook them simply and well, and serve them with a smile.
Choose from our à la carte menu or our tapas menu. Or ask your server about the dishes of the day, which change according to market availability and the whim of the chef.
Because the right people on our side of the bar attract the right people on your side of the bar. And vice versa.
On Monday 26th June
Jill Every and Max Smith pass the torch of Wilde's to new custodians.
We want to thank all of you for your custom, your support and your friendship over nearly two decades.
We will leave with mixed emotions, but confident that Ben (Philpotts) and Gareth (Dore) will ensure that Wilde's remains a Leamington institution - warm and welcoming, offering good food, good wine and good company.
In other words, the same. But better.
Et quasi cursores vitae lampada tradunt.
Thank you all.
Max and Jill x
