|It's rare these days that I walk into a pub and get the wow factor that I did here. I'd say this is one of the 10 best pubs I have visited in the UK. Of around 3,000 pubs I've rated on the site, I've only ever given 5 pubs a 10/10. This one is the 6th. It has a rather unassuming location up a dead-end street next to a park and Coventry's rugby stadium. It has the feel of a village local. The interior is a single bar, with a real fire near the door. There were 10 ales, 12 ciders and a perry on my visit yesterday afternoon. The ales were Highgate Dark Mild, Hobsons Twisted Spire, Froth Blowers Piffle Stonker & Gollop With Zest, Framework Equinox Rye, Church End Vanilla Jack, Spontastic & Stout Coffin, Rowton Area 51 & Potbelly SOS. The ciders were Hogans Hazy Daisy & Panking Pole, Snails Bank Pineapple & Pink Grapefruit, Gwatkin No Bull & Stoke Red, Original Somerset Cider Company Apple Jack, Circle Roundabout, Thatchers Cheddar Valley, Handmade Crazy Diamond, Ross-on-Wye Oak Cask , Perrys Pathfinder & Turners Russet. These were supplemented by Broadoak Perry. The atmosphere was good and despite being reasonably busy, I could still get a table. Both dogs and families are welcome. The cider I had (Roundabout) was in good condition. But sadly I was driving on this occasion. I definitely need to come back to sample the rest!|

|Easily the best pub in Coventry, not that it has much competition. Landlady Angie is among the most desirable women ever to flutter eyelids and she alone makes the pub worth visiting.|
But it's the ale and the atmosphere that make this place stand out. They always have 4-8 ales on plus a range of ciders. The beer quality is usually B rather thsn A but they have no regular beers and the line up changes constantly.
they do real ciders and lagers, not that they interest the Captain much.
The decor is wooden, cosy and assisted by the log fire.
The punters are pretty weird, whether or not this adds or detracts from the charm depends on if you are one of them. 10/10.

|This is a real pub. No TV or machines. A basic pub where conversation rules. GBG 2014. Ever changing real ales and ciders. Bass is on most of the time. Sunday Lunches. Live music sessions.|
Although near the station and rugby ground it is tucked away in a quite corner of coventry. Like many pubs it has been struggling but the staff are trying hard to pull it around
It is the sort of pub I like. It just needs more custom. So pay it a visit.

|Very disappointing. Off the beaten track, overlooking a park yet in the GBG so I expected a gem. I got a basic, dingy bar with the back room closed and full of junk, two beers on, average Bass (is there any other kind?) and it smelled. In short, the type of pub that give pubs a bad name. |
The landlady was telling the other customer about an order for four beers and there was a cider delivery while I was there, but surely if she had her wits about her she'd make sure she stocked up before running out. All in all an underwhelming experience.

|Went in after visiting the Coventry Beer Festival nearby. Good service and selection of beers. Definately will pop in again if in the area.|
