Medieval pub that has been updated inside. But it still maintains plenty of character. Having been to Drapers and the Earl of Mercia and then moving on to the Slug & Lettuce (an old courthouse, but no real ale and not listed on here) and the Flying Standard, this was the only pub in this part of Coventry city centre that actually had the atmosphere of a decent boozer. A few people seemed to be in for a pre-Christmas meet-up. Ales were Caledonian Golden Cross, Byatt's XXXmas, Wychwood Bah Humbug & Ossett Yorkshire Blonde. To my surprise, there were also a couple of Weston's ciders - Old Rosie & Flat Tyre. CAMRA discounts are offered. But for some reason, they were only offered on the Old Rosie and not the Flat Tyre - seemed a little odd. Not a bad little pub though.

Good Beer Guide Tick #2 in Coventry.

Architecturally stunning medieval building next to the cathedral... somehow surviving the blitz.

Inside its had a posh makeover - making it near gastro.

Four to five real ale pumps on. The Adnams Ghost Ship was in slightly better than average condition.

Nothing to make this stand out.

No customers at 2pm on a tuesday afternoon, possibly due to the soulless interior. Did stay as quiz machine was obviously available, there was Broadside on and it was ok no more.

Nice old building, but not a very good pub. Has potential though; if they could just evict those pesky chimps.....
