Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime. Pub was quite busy but nevertheless we were served promptly and our food arrived quickly. For the price the food was very good - not outstanding but for £5 per person I wouldn't expect it to be. The staff were very hospitable and engaging.

Just visited the Squirrel to claim a free pint courtesy of Punch Taverns. Had hoped for Stella Artois but had to settle for Carling but then again it was free so it went down well!

As I visited the pub to have a quick break prior to a meeting with a local solicitor I was surprised to find it like an open shop with legal staff talking about their ckients,not very good for confidentiality as it is quite obvious the local watering hole for local estate agents.Not that I want to know when having a...

Booked a party of 10 from work here last Tuesday. Table set up beautifully, and food delivered quickly and efficiently. Food was very good, and hot. Everyone present complimented the staff on the food, quick service, and the way we were looked after. They even wrapped to meat leftovers in foil for the dog owners on the table. A really... More

This place is set in the commercial bit of the town (not far from Inspire) and looks nothing from the outside but inside it is lovely. Plenty of seating (even though it is always busy), the food is good and well priced and there is not usually too much waiting at the bar. It is a pub and so gets... More

In the heart of the commercial district of Coventry a watering hole that serves average food and drink to a range of interesting people. Here you can mix with lawyers, estate agents, local government workers and the general public. Even the odd petty criminal who has just left the nearby law courts. Its noisy, sometimes crowded, the food menu is... More

Went at lunchtime here. It was really busy and is obviously a popular location for office workers. There is outdoor seating both at the back and the front, and although the front is on the main road, it's not overly noisy. We ordered two sandwiches and a bottle of wine. The service was a little slow, but as I mentioned,... More

Came here for a quick meal and a drink in the sun filled garden. Food reasonably price very tasty tuna salad with chilly dressing. Large portion served in round dish. Why are soft drinks so expensive in pubs? It feels like it could be a popular place to come along to, strange to see boarded up windows at the front... More

Was given wrong drink in error but bar staff refused to replace it saying it was our error. What happened to the customer is always right? Disgraceful!
