“Gluten Free Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Visited this restaurant twice for lunch on a recent visit to Coventry - it was quite busy both times but we were found a table at once. My coeliac husband was delighted with the wide range of gluten free choices and really enjoyed having lasagne and proper battered fish and chips - what a treat! I had the ordinary versions and it was all delicious and served in reasonable time and well priced.

“Nice Egg Benedict”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed in the nearby Travelodge and went to Playwrights for a relaxed brunch, before venturing out to see Coventry, and especially the cathedral. We had nice food, friendly service and reasonable prices - plus great coffee! It's a welcome find in a delightful little city that's not exactly overprovided with nice eateries.

I had the cajun chicken breast meal and the food was absolutely delicious!!
