Description: At the Blue Bistro restaurant we offer a fabulous menu featuring modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean twist, based upon great, preferably local, seasonal ingredients, ethically sourced and cooked with passion. Despite the quality of our food, it is still possible to lunch at Blue for a fiver. Awards include the Warwickshire & Worcestershire Life Food & Drink Newcomer of the Year 2012 and an OpenTable Diners Award as one of the top ten most romantic restaurants in the UK and Ireland. The dining area at Blue covers two floors of a beautiful medieval building dating back to 1450, the exposed beams of which are complemented by striking wooden furniture to create an elegant ambiance and a unique dining experience. The building was formerly a pub called the Green Dragon - reputedly the model for the inn featured in George Eliot's Middlemarch.The restaurant is situated on the historic Spon Street, in Coventry City Centre, an easy walk from the Belgrade Theatre, the Skydome and its Odeon cinema, Ikea and, of course, Coventry Cathedral.We have good disabled facilities, but if you have mobility issues please let us know to ensure that your table is not upstairs!Unlike many restaurants, we are happy to welcome children.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

If you're into the plastic chains that litter our high streets, you're welcome to them. Blue is hidden away on all that remains of coventry's medieval splendour, a collection of old buildings that missed the blitz that flattened the city. It was quiet when I was in, but I was greeted with the most personal of service, a big smile, and a tasty, tasty burger, which really hit the spot. Good food amidst more oak beams than you could shake a stick at. Enjoy! If you're visiting coventry, this is a must.

“Lovely homecooked chunky chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Had the gourmet burger, it was delicious & filling although was missing the gherkin. The anchovies & olives were great but bit pricey for portion. Had to ask waitress again for my daughters apple juice even though only 3 of us dining & she was on her mobile phone constantly & when asked for juice she had to end personal call she was on. On leaving I had to ask for bill as she didn't even look over to.clear plates etc. Very nice building, love coming here but more attentive staff required.

“Terrible staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I have been to Blue many times but my visit last night has left me very disappointed. I'm affraid to say I wont be returning. We were promised the christmas menu when booking but when we arrived for the meal were told that wasnt avaliable.
One waiter was useless and kept getting our orders wrong the other was very arrogant and rude.
When we did get the correct orders the food arrived cold.We would normally have a pudding but because our meal was so bad we didnt want to spend a penny more and asked for the bill.
On the bill were items we hadnt ordered and we had to ask for this to be changed.
Our night was ruined!!
