Dining options: Dinner, Late Night, Breakfast
Description: The City Arms has formed part of Earlsdon's history for many years. In March 2000 it was taken over and refurbished by JD Wetherspoon. The combination of its traditional Tudor - style structure and its association with this large and well known brand makes this a great value drinking hub and restaurant throughout the week, while on Friday and Saturday nights it transforms in to a lively environment and a perfect place to start your weekend.

“A really lovely pub!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

I'd first of all like to say what a pleasure it is to meet the staff within this pub! Always friendly and as helpful as possible. I regularly attend for the steak deals on a Tuesday and am never disappointed! My orders are always taken professionally and delivered quickly. The range of ales on always seems to please my husband along with the info and recommendations from staff!
Just like to say thank you and what a good establishment this is.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

I am currently on business in Coventry for 7 weeks and tried this pub for lunch one day. Needless to say I have never wanted to eat anywhere else since. It is cheap, cheerful, the food is very good and the staff are so welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone!

“City Arms - excellent oub marred by pensioner group of”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I was visiting the City Arms recently along with a couple of my friends from the local Bridge Club. We are regular users of the pub and enjoy a couple of pints after a competitive night's Rubber. The staff are always welcoming, well mannered and the pub offers an excellent range of beers and food. Unfortunately our enjoyment of our weekly post Bridge pint has been ruined quite recently by the loud, homophobic and xenophobic rantings of an elderly gentleman and his cronies. I don't know who this person is but his offensive and discourteous remarks seem to go by unchallenged. This rather unpleasant, borderline literate bigot is ruining things for others of a more tolerant disposition. Best wishes and that
