I promised to return to the Broomfield Tavern and on Saturday I had the perfect opportunity to finish here. I awarded it a 10/10 on my first and last visit. Many times a return visit doesn't seem as good as the first one. But on this occasion, it was every much as good, if not better. Customers are friendly and the welcome is warm. It's far enough from the centre for it not to get crowded. But it's clearly appreciated by the more discerning drinker. On this occasion, the ales were Church End Fallen Angel & Vanilla Jack, Froth Blowers Riverside Stout, Rat Jungle Rats, Shakespeare Bard's Best, S43 Seraphim & Burton Bridge Old Expensive. The cider list was Saxby's Cloudy Rhubarb & Original, Snail's Bank Raspberry, Lilley's Lemon & Lime, Merry Monkey, Somerset Scrumpy, Gladiator, Wild Dog & Bee Sting Perry, Hogan's Hazy Rays & Harvest Press, Dorset Nectar Organic, Gwatkin No Bull, Marches Appleshed, Friel's Vintage, Biddenden's Dry & Gwynt y Ddraig Farmhouse Pyder. Had another 3 pints here, despite being a touch sozzled. I don't recall getting back to the station. But I must have managed it somehow. One of my 5 favourite pubs in the land.

Excellent. Good range of quality beer. 15-20 mins from Coventry city centre - an oasis.

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.
