The historic town of Warwick sits at the heart of ‘Shakespeare’s Country’.

Warwick is full of great places to eat too, with lots of culinary cultures on show. Here’s ten places to check out.
At The Aubergine you can find a taste of Turkey in Warwick. Chef Sezai Aslan set up on Smith Street, the eastern continuation of Jury Street and High Street, and named after Francis Smith of Warwick, the architect of many of the fine buildings in the town, in 2005. Customers think it’s the best place for Turkish food anywhere in the Midlands. There are lots of mezzes to start, then main courses are cooked on the ocakbasi, a traditional Turkish open barbecue.

Tasca Dali is located on the High Street, just up from the famous Lord Leycester’s Hospital and the Westgate. As you’ve probably guessed from the name Tasca Dali serves up Spanish cuisine and they emport lots of produce like olive oils and sauces from Jaen in Spain. They use them in the dishes, of course, but you can also buy them to take home and use in your own recipes too. There’s tapas available and a menu that changes daily, however expect to find things like paella, mussels, prawns, pork medallion and chorizo soup. Five courses are priced at just £25 per head.
