This pub - the original building dating back to the 14th Century - is just 5 minutes walk from Coventry Town Hall and Art Gallery area. Original wooden beams and walls make it an intriguing place, with three small areas downstairs, one with the bar. Upstairs rooms are really curious, though not always open until the evening.

Bar has seven hand pulls serving guest ales - at time of visit they included beers from Sharps, Kelham Island and Black Sheep, also beers from Fullers and Everards. Several taps serving various lagers, also Guinness and cider. Bottled beers available too.

The beers we tried were on good form and fair price for Coventry city centre. Mixed crowd of locals, and with being close to the University is also popular with some of the students and staff.

Food available from mid-day opening until 3pm, and very good value, though variable in quality, so take your luck with the choice!

Live music evenings are held from time to time, see their web pages for more information.

An interesting and usual place to see, with decent range of beers available and fair prices, so worth a visit when in the area. One criticism however, the rest rooms/toilets are a bit 'basic' !!
