Bit of a timewarp pub from the 70s though not so bad for that. Not 70s prices though but the ale is drinkable.

Another backstreet pub in the Chapelfields area of the city. It has 3 small rooms that each have their own character. The landlord/barman didn't appear particularly cheerful. But the ale range was good - Otter Bitter, Fullers London Pride, Wickwar Shanakee Stout, Butcombe Bitter & Courage Best. Cider was Old Rosie. Quite a cosy place that is worth a visit if in the area.

I was very interested to read Beer hunter's comments 15/9/12. I too had the same experience about 2 years ago when I saw the barman filling up my glass with slops. I told him that was not acceptable and to pull me a fresh one. He said he was told to do it by the management.
I reported this to the Council Public Health dept and they replied that they had visited the premises and told them to stop such practice.
Obviously this has not been heeded .I have never been back although I had been a regular until then.
Perhaps more people should take the same action as I did.

Interesting to see that the other recent reviews have commented about the prices. I've not drunk in Coventry for some time so I had no idea about local pricing but thought 3.10 for a pint of Taylor's that was neither Golden nor Best seemed steep. Locals obviously think the same. 1.40 for a bag of scratchings was entering 'Aving a Larf territory as well. No wonder I was the only customer on a Saturday lunchtime.

Apart from that it was a nice enough backstreet boozer, a bit run down but I would imagine it to be friendly enough for an evening session. An expensive one, as it turns out.

This pub has been going down hill for a couple of years, less people are using it so the price keeps going up. Last night and before I have seen beer from the slops tray being put into customers glasses. Another ploy to make more profit but very unhealthy, if you drink here make certain you stand at the bar so you can see your drink being poured, this can be difficult as some is from the other room so pick your place with care. Preferably at the end of the bar. My visits here are very numbered if this practice does not stop I will be off, don't think if you are a regular it won't happen to you because it did for my mates and me and I have been drinking here for over twenty years.
