We often call in after a grueling session of shopping in Cov. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, a good place to meet friends new and old. Nighttimes are jumping.

Excellent afternoon catching up with friends that ended up going on into the evening. Drinks and atmosphere was really good and enhanced by the staff. Think it's under New management and you can see the changes already. Friendly and efficient service in particular from a young lady I think called Laura or Lauren. Will be returning.

A lovely sunny day, sat outdoors, very pleasant and that's where it ends! Ordered halloumi and avocado sandwich with side of chips. When it arrived we got Stone cold soggy chips, thin see through cardboard bread and a limp salad. I never complain I really don't but we sent this back and asked for a refund. The waitress and manager... More

We called in to this restaurant / bar mainly because we were interested to see the interior of the building. We stayed for a drink in the separate bar area. There is also a separate restaurant area. We decided not to eat as the menu was quite limited. It was mainly burgers and pizzas however there was an offer for... More

We often pop in here for early evening drinks and the food. The place is the old court house and so is different from your usual pub decor. It has a great outdoor space and can get quite lively. On this visit we had a few drinks from the very well stocked bar and a tasty platter of snacks to... More

We are usually served by a young lady who is extremely friendly/bubbly and always serves with a smile! Im quite particular with food so when I request for a thicker... More

This is a great pub set in what was Coventry's old Court house, it was also the place of the final public execution in the city but don't let that put you off !! Great original features such as the old cells, superb atmosphere and good food and drink at reasonable prices; highly recommended.

we've often been on the terrace for a drink. it is definitely a bit hit and miss with the crowd it attracts. it is mostly students but they get loud and leary quickly. food is average unless sitting in the restaurant.
