We met up with our daughter and grandchildren to have a meal here. The staff are friendly and seem keen to ensure that you know all about the restaurant and its guarantees. We tried to book for a table for five but the booking quota was full. We were told to turn up and the wait shouldn't be more than 30 mins. This was the case. The food takes a little while to come but with a packed restaurant this is hardly surprising. The food was exactly as described, hot and tasty. We had 3 soft drinks, 1 bottle of wine (not the cheapest on the menu) 2 children's meals and 3 adult meals for just over £50, we didn't even take advantage of the meal deals. We felt that this was excellent value and just wish that the chain had extended to where we live. Will definitely vist again.

We went out for a large (21) family gathering on a Tuesday night and were slightly taken aback by how packed the car park was. We'd made a last minute reservation (thank goodness) and were all seated in a nice room just off the main restaurant area. There was another family party going on at the same time but no problem with service or crowding. The menu is large and there were lots of "deals". I had the ultimate mixed grill combo because I was starving and at £11.50 it was stunning value. We all ordered separately at the bar but because we used the same table number, we were able to arrange for all the meals to be served together. Some of our group had starters so we actually didn't get the mains until 45 minutes after ordering. But I thought that was pretty acceptable given we were such a large party. My combo was surprisingly good - the only negative was that the chicken skewer was a little on the dry side. Quantities generally were generous and everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes. The staff were friendly and efficient - not one dish was wrong. The coffee was good, drinks reasonable, and atmosphere pleasant. It was one of our party's birthday and the staff happily took the birthday cake we brought and then produced it with all candles lit at an appropriate point. It was a very enjoyable and surprisingly good evening and we plan to return to try out the rest of the menu.

We have just had lunch at the Cocked Hat Coventry waited 40 mins for it and thats after asking were it was. My husbands meal was okay, mine was luke warm with dried up chicken and bacon you couldnt cut with a knife. They said there policy is to replace any meal if you dont like it ,but as we had waited that long for it to come i hadnt got time to wait for another meal to be cooked so asked for a refund, and only got half of the cost because it was a meal deal.. There attitude was tough its that or nothing. will not be going back and i certainly will not be recommending it.

We were staying at the Premier Inn so this pub was a short walk up the road. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was tasty and freshly cooked... it was everything we needed for a quick, reasonably priced meal. I like the fact that the menu has a healthy options section too :)

You never really know what they will serve up.
But if you go to a two for ten pounds eatery, you really should not expect top cuisine. Having said that, we have had some enjoyable meals, but likewise quite a few average one's as well.
On a positive note, the quality of their drinks (beers) is of a high standard.
