When you've done visiting the real ale establishments of Cov and are looking for late night with quality beers, get yourself in here. Craft ales abound but think the couple of Bryatts available are cask - open until 2am Sat night.

Great venue, huge selection of beers from around the world. Most seats are outside as it's tiny inside but there are patio heaters for the winter. Certainly one of the best places in Cov. I think the same owner has a beer shop in Earlsdon high street ans there used to be beer tasting evenings that I attended twice. All in all probabley the best place in to go in Coventry!

One of the best (but also most expensive) places to drink foreign bottled beer in Coventry. was in top 100 bars in the UK in The Independent. Great crowd but no draught ales.

Really enjoyed visiting here on a trip to Coventry this week: lovely environment, friendly atmosphere, helpful staff. The only thing I would ask for extra would be a beer menu to help me choose.

I'm from Belfast and was over in Coventry a good few times a while back, wasn't over enamoured with the place - Belfast has much better pubs and clubs but unfortunately it doesn't have a pub quite like this!!! I loved this place, really miss it now. The staff, unique beer selection (well in Britain anyway) and atmos just makes the place special - I actually found this site by searching for a beer they serve in Inspire which I forgot the name of - Its a Belgian beer, corked and is very fruity, can anyone help me with this? If the owner of Inspire reads this - there's a market in Belfast for this type of place!!!!

Atmospheric place, good selction of beers, not much space inside but large heated seating area outside. Excellent place to relax!

Outrageously good café/bar in, wait for it, Coventry's 13th century Christchurch Spire. Getting a seat is nigh on impossible inside, but there is seating outside with patio heaters and they will come an light them for you if they aren't already lit, before you can get inside to buy a drink. The food and service (particularly the service) is phenomenal. Belgian beer is the house speciality, music goes live on a Thursday - but the essence of Inspire is its idiosyncratic but brilliant translation of the continental street bar and dining experience to Britain.The vibe of cosmopolitan city life means you could be in Amsterdam or Paris - but you know you're in England in all the good ways that conversation drifts from life philosophy to football with scarecely a wink from the staff and, on a good day, the noise of laughter and chatter becomes an anthem. Unique, pure and ... perfect.Truly world class, for many, Inspire is just about as good as café culture can get. One of the Midlands ... in fact, one of the UK's, best kept secrets, Inspire really does what it says on the can…
