“Sunday Lunch 19th Jan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Popped in for sunday lunch on the 19th January 2014 having eaten many times there before. The pub was RAMMED and I knew I should have booked. HOWEVER - the staff really could not have been more accomodating. We found a small area to have a drink (it really was that rammed) and in 15 minutes they had found a table. The food was (as always) fantastic - I had the roast and my friend had the bream - but it was the staff who really made a difference. We had a drink from the bar - allowed to run a tab, with no need to log a credit card. It's that personal touch that means a lot and they seemed to really care ... no "have a nice day" false bull! The food took a while - if your looking for a rushed lunch then don't bother - but if you want a proper rural English gastro style pub with excellent hosts then go there. I'm back next Sunday and it's becoming my favourite Sunday Lunch treat.

“Good Sunday roast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We went to the Coventry Arms for a Sunday roast and it was quite busy - fortunately we just about managed to get a table without having to wait. The staff were friendly, the food was nice, but the portions are rather massive!

They only had around 4-5 dishes as main courses, about 3-4 starters and 3-4 desserts, which suggests everything is freshly cooked. We had roast beef and roast pork with all the trimmings. Everything tasted good!

They certainly offer very good value for money food with a nice atmosphere. A nice pub to visit!

“Lovely Sunday Roast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We enjoyed a Sunday roast for 4 including 1 person who is dairy free and he was accommodated for with no problem. Very good value for the quality of the meal. We've visited the Coventry Arms several times in 2013 and have always had a good meal. Better quality food than other pubs in Corfe Mullen for a reasonable price. I'm sure we'll be back in 2014!
