Regular lunch stop

We stop here regularly for lunch as there are not many places to eat in Nuneaton town centre, and this place fits the bill for well made, simple, yummy food in a nice setting. Despite the lack of competition and bustling atmosphere I have never not been able to get a table for two of a lunch time... read more

On Thu 30/07/2015 I and my partner had the misfortune of visiting The Jail house for a bite to eat in the afternoon. I must say I will never return again to eat in the place again. Two plates of sandwiches came to £11.50, for that we got two slices of stale brown bread and about 10 chips with a... More

From the day I went in to pay the deposit for our wedding reception everything went pear shaped. Firstly they double booked us, I had to keep prompting them to answer e-mail or telephone communication, one of the lady staff members made my 3 year old son cry after snatching a balloon from him, most of our guests didn't get...

We were so looking forward to coming here. The coffee was lovely, my friend had tea. The pot however stuck to the table as poorly maintained and the paint was like glue. The seats had been left out in the rain therefore were grubby and looked dirty. I had a sausage baguette of which the bread was lovely, the chips... More

Sunday buffet is always terrific, and the hospitality is excellent. The price is very reasonable too.

After asking for our drinks the waitress walked off without asking if my daughter wanted a drink. No one curtesy checked us. Not once asked if our meals were okay. The... More

Nipped in for lunch, it was ok, nothing special. A bit pricey for what you get...the cheeseburger was straight out of the 80's but the other meals were fine. The surroundings are nice, but would not like to be in there when a tad busier as it was already squashed. Would i recommend it? Not sure, certainly wouldn't put people... More
