Alcohol refused to a 28 year old drinking with a meal, and accompanied by a 31 year old who had id.
Sep 2020 • Couples
Regular customer...

Ordered 2 meals and 2pints for me and my partner, when the drinks came we were both asked for id (fair enough) my partner had id(age 31), I didnt (age 28). The manager serving handed us the drinks anyway without saying anything, so we both thought we were ok to drink afterall.

Food then came, few minutes after a server came and told me he would take the pints away if i continued to drink. (this was embarrassing, we both felt like children getting told off) As we were eating he then kept milling around us, and watching us from a distance just incase the 28year old took another sip of the paid for fairly, with a meal cider...

Very uncomfortable trying to eat when theres a guy staring at us!

This seems (and is) mightily unfair as:
1. It IS LEGAL to drink with meal, when accompanied by an adult from the age of 16. (im 28 theres no way i would ever pass for a 16 year old) and my partner was with me to supervise (remember shes 31years old) (lol)

2. I was the one to order off the app, they were happy to take my money without verifying my age, and no alternative drinks were offered after the man said i was going to have my drink taken. Its not legal for someone under 18 to even ORDER alcohol if they were that worried about the law why don't they enforce that aspect more strongly as well?

3. Im 28 and im clearly not 16 years old or younger, Im a grown adult who just wanted a nice drink with a meal.

In conclusion...
Food was fine, service terrible, the 20ml of cider I had was very nice...
Extremely thirsty after being threatened to not have any more though.

Probably won't return

Tasty Burger
Feb 2020 • Solo
Burger was very tasty, just enough chips and with a pint of Magners great value. I ate here alone after work before catching up with friends before going to gig.

Had food here before and always great value.

Cold food

Service was average. The food that we ordered was waaay too cold and dry. Had to ask for it to be warmed up. Dessert was nicer though. Overall, not impressed

Good Fayre
Jun 2019 • Friends
Wetherspoons pub this and went on “fish Friday” which is excellent value for money. It’s an old building opposite the impressive town hall and has eating on two floors. As usual very busy but the staff were excellent and the food and drink “spot-on”. Wouldn’t hesitate to return as very convenient location.

Economical, great options for breakfast
Apr 2019 • Friends
Great options for breakfast right from a small meal to a huge spread, very economical, superb customer service and the best part if that you can have as much of coffee as you want. Fantastic place for a sumptuous meal in the heart of Coventry in the high street.
Parking subject to availability in the city centre.
Ordering is through the app and food is served on the table. Loved it.

Quick drink
Mar 2019 • Friends
Spoons is what it is, difficult to criticise as you sort of know what to expect. Had been out for something to eat with my godson and we headed here for a quick cheap drink before going our separate ways. We went to the bar as everyone uses the app so nobody orders personally anymore. Cheap drink served quickly so no issues from me.

Staff made it

Had lunch here and food was ok however staff were friendly and helpful. The pub was quite busy which may have been the reason it was not as clean as I would have liked
