Booked Sunday lunch for three at the last minute and were very lucky to get a table. When we arrived the place was buzzing with what must have been pretty much a full house.We ordered the fish shared platter and breads with olive oil etc for a starter and it was very good with two very tasty dips. We all had different roasts which were very good especially the choice of vegetables, already plated.I asked our waiter if i could be cheeky and have another roast potato. With a smile on his face he went off to the kitchen immediately and produced another one within seconds. Our plates were cleared quickly when we had finished and we were asked if we required desserts which we certainly did if the previous standard of food was anything to go by. I had a apple, blackberry etc crumble, ice cream and custard and the other desserts were ginger and toffee and custard, and enormous profiteroles and cream. What pleased me was that our waiter was happy to substitute custard for cream etc.
We were very lucky to have our waiter who made the dining experience such a pleasure and i had to ask his name. The top class service from Pete, I hope that is allowed to specifically name somebody, and the very good menu will ensure that the next time we are in Coventry we will be eating at the White Lion.
