Impressive looking building right in the middle of the shopping area and providing a welcome respite from the throngs of Christmas shoppers. This was the poorer of the two Wetherspoon's branches I visited in the centre of Coventry. It is set over multiple levels. I had to retreat to an upper level to find a spare table. This area had its own bar. But the beer selection was more limited. Most people were dining. Ales were Greene King Abbot & Fireside, Ruddles Best, Sharp's Doom Bar, Well's Bombardier Glorious English, Wychwood Hobgoblin, Banks & Taylor Santa's Slayer & Burton Bridge Santi-Freeze. Ciders were Old Rosie & Black Dragon. Handy if you're shopping.

Good place to eat, if they run true to their word that the room on the right is for diners only

Pretty impressive building, standard Wetherspoon's indoors, a pint of Abbott (2.10) was satisfactory & service was good. A pity the weather was vile on my little tour of Coventry as I might have seen more than the inside of average pubs.

I tend to agree with Spookyhead, though Wetherspoons tend to go up and down in quality frequently. The food quality seemed better than usual, though the menu is generic

The standard has gone downhill rapidly since the departure of assistant manager, Sean. The majority of the guest ales are always not ready to be served even though the pump clips would suggest otherwise. Fairly clueless staff who seem to have a problem topping up your pint after they've served it with a huge head. I was even informed by one that it had to have a big head to make it legal. You couldn't make it up. Increasingly this pub is one to avoid. Its a real shame after it had improved considerably.
