Well maybe the biggest in the West Midlands anyway! There are literally pages of options with something for everyone. We had two chicken dishes, the peppered chicken was amazing. The steak looked good as did the fish pie which was absolutely huge.

We had 4 starters, 4 mains and 2 desserts plus a couple of drinks each and the bill came in at about £100, so not the cheapest place. Still the portions are decent and the food lovely.

If there was one thing I'd change it would be the music. It was way too loud to talk sometimes, and wasn't really 'dinner' type music, more disco - and no we're not old timers, we just like to chat over a meal not shout.

That said it is certainly one of the better places to eat around Coventry....although that might not be saying much!

Stopped off at the Shilton Arms "on spec" having spent a few hours at Coombe. Know the place from old but had been some time since I had been in there. My partner had Sunday lunch and her sister had the Thai Sea Bass so you couldn't have wished for two totally different meals. Both were very good and tasty, Sunday lunch was hot, well cooked and plenty of it, only slight constructive criticism, was that it did look a bit bland, perhaps some nice colourful peas or something just to enhance the look of it? Just an idea! Thai Sea Bass was excellent, and the lads waiting on the tables very polite and helpful. For good, varied, reasonably priced food you cant go far wrong!

Been here three times now and always enjoy the experience. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Food is great and portions are big. Maybe have a little to many options on the menu, could perhaps sacrifice some choice for quality. If staying in the area give it a go.

Very small pub style restaurant. The kitchen is connected, so when full, when we visited, the temperature was very hot. This made the experience un-enjoyable, especially when all the food came out very hot as well (as if it had been under a hot plate or zapped in the microwave). Other than that the service was good and the food quality was good as well. I would point out that I thought there was too much on the menu, probably more dishes available than seats in the restaurant, and they may be better to focus on fewer dishes. Would recommend for an Sunday afternoon.
