A quirky place as the building dates back to the 1700's and was formally the Court House in Coventry. Check out the glass floor cover over the steps to the cells! It's also right next to Coventry Cathedral with a nice outdoor seating area for the warmer months.

Nice menu and some good midweek offers (241 pizza's and burgers for example). Also live entertainment advertised for evenings and weekends.

The food was tasty and well presented. The service was good but it was a quiet Monday afternoon. Good selection of beers, wines and spirits.

Definitely worth a visit!

Tried to have a meal today at this restaurant and gave up after nearly two hours. We had pre-booked a table for 8 and added one more person on the day. At this point the member of staff was really helpful. Ordered our meals at 1pm to be told there was a 20-30 minute wait. By 1.40pm no food had arrived so one of our group had to leave and cancel her meal. Got to 2pm and after enquiring was told 'yours will be the next order we start'.....after over an hour. Speaking to the deputy manager we were told that one of the chefs had fallen ill and that's why they were now behind; apologies but nothing could be done.

The thing is that things do occur from time to time and they are unavoidable however its how its dealt with that's the important. No information/apology were forthcoming; we had to ask what was happening. We were not the only group of people that were about to leave so a lot of business would have been lost today. We cancelled our order, left and ate at Pizza Express.

Cannot comment on food as didn't get the chance to try any. Would I go back, not a chance as we were treated discourteously.

Can't rate the food, because after an hour and a half of excuses we walked out. Nine people sat down at a booked table for lunch, so the total bill with drinks would have been in the region on £250 .... It's a pity they couldn't be bothered to serve us in a timely fashion, a feeble apology but no effort to knock any money off our drinks bill. Never again, a waste of time and a big thumbs down.

Visited for mid week lunch. Pizza and fish both very good and good value. Not busy but I guess that's because it was lunchtime! Will definitely visit again
