BACKGROUND TO HIGH PAVEMENT


This is a joint venture between local Paul Brown and Johan Ventur. The design of the interior has been led by Steve Howie Design who have designed many different styled restaurant interiors. Previously the premises were occupied by the restaurant and cafe chain Prezzo but the entire interior has been ripped out and replaced at a reputed cost of half a million pounds.

As well as a popular restaurant area there are two semi-separate areas for dining parties. One takes about 20 people and the other about 10 people. This keeps the more noisy parties slightly away form the main dining area.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF THE HIGH PAVEMENT, WARWICK


The interior is modern but comfortable looking. Probably the most impressive individual feature is the large curved oak bar with its granite surface and attractive lighting. The main dining area has multi-coloured brick walls with very chunky wooden beamed ceilings. The impression is of a most definitely high class restaurant which, at the same time, is not overpowering.
 

This is not just a restaurant though, it is a thriving bar serving all the normal drinks and a very intriguing list of cocktails all priced at £7.50. From the Calvados Old Fashioned (Cinnamon infused Calvados, Orange and Bitters) which no man would be ashamed to drink to the more feminine Rapaska (Belvedere Black Raspberry Vodka, Raspberry puree, Orange and Apple juice), there is something to suit everyone. They even have their own High Pavement draught beer which tasted very top quality.
 

THE MENU


The menu majors on the High Pavement "little plates" which are tapas sized portions of a variety of different dishes. They range in price from £5.50 up to £9.50 per portion and two per person plus a salad shared between two was about right for us. We tasted five altogether and it was a delicious experience. The deep fried lamb with apple chutney particularly tasted good but none of the portions disappointed. The menu does change on a regular basis so a return visit may well have different "little plates" to choose from.

About half of the "little plates" can also be ordered as main meals and there is also a selection main meals ranging from Sausages, mash and gravy at £9.50 to pan fried Sea bass at £17.00. Again the main menu is liable to change. All the items on the menu were available at the time we had our meal.

To one side of the main eating area are two smaller function rooms which can be booked if you prefer a bit more privacy. We attended a works Christmas lunch in the larger of the two rooms and were offered a choice of three starters, three main meals and three deserts followed by coffee. For this sort of get together the food was seasonal and good.

SERVICE


You are immediately and pleasantly greeted on entering High Pavement and shown to a table. The staff are very knowledgeable about what is on the menu and can give advice about the food on offer if you want. Service is attentive and unobtrusive. The time spacing between serving courses is just right, leisurely and not rushed. Unlike many restaurants there is no attempt to turn round the tables quickly and there is no problem with having a long coffee and a cocktail at your table when the food has been eaten.

PRICES


Five little plates and a salad would cost around £38 for two people and two average priced main meals would cost around £22 for two people. As far as we know service is not included. This represents good value for the quality of the food, service and pleasant surroundings.

NEARBY ALTERNATIVES


The centre of Warwick is a foodies heaven and there are countless restaurants and cafes within a five minute walk. For a selection of similar "small plates" we would recommend Pancho Tapas which is a couple of minutes walk away. But the reality is that Warwick town centre has a huge selection of  perfectly acceptable alternatives and we haven't yet had time to sample anything but a small proportion of them.

OPINIONS FROM OTHER REVIEW SITES


We scoured the internet to read all the reviews we could find of the High Pavement. They are of course the opinions of other people but we can report that in general they praised the food, the surroundings and the service. On Trip Advisor the overall rating is 4.5 out of 5, the TopTable rating was just under 4 out of 5 and other review sites rating it as just over 4 out of five. To sum up the adverse comments, some considered the music (on some nights) to be too loud and some considered it pricey but at the same time value for money.
