We got to this pub by walking up Hearsall Lane and then taking a narrow passageway between the houses on the right and coming out onto Craven St. We arrived in here mid Tuesday afternoon and the pub was busy with locals, who were a decent bunch.
This is a traditional two roomed pub, with the bar and tv on your left and lounge on the right. There were four ales on, which were Bass, Abbott, Church End and Hearsall. We went for Hearsall Brewery Chapelfield at 4%, which is brewed out the back, which was ok at first and then lost its way half way down the glass. The Church End Goats Milk was more to my liking. Prices here were good and my cheese and onion cob off the bar at £1.20 was brill. The Irish owner and barmaid were very welcoming here.

The green paint and multiple, traditional Guiness signs outside give a strong clue that is a local Irish boozer and the theme continues inside.
You walk straight into a corridor with the bar to the left, where a lively and competitive darts match was taking place on our visit. You can access the bar from the corridor so if you're frequenting the lounge area to the right there's a short cut to a drink.
The whole place is decorated with Irish photographs and memorabilia as well as lots of Beatles paraphinalia. I was impressed to see a signed Sean Kelly cycling shirt displayed in the corridor.
Despite it being a Monday evening, the place was busy with darts, cards and footie watching and there was plenty of friendly banter.
Beer: Church End Goat's Milk, Morland Original and Bass. The Bass was fine but it's not a wholly inspiring choice and most people seemed to be drinking either lager or Guiness. Funnily enough.
A warm and friendly local but with limited ale appeal.

The many illuminated Guiness signs hanging outside were the clue,this is a traditional boozer very popular with the local Irish community.You enter into a short corridor with a serving counter,beyond this to the left is a square room with a darts board,wooden floor,flatscreen and the main bar with four handpumps.To the otherside of the corridor is a carpeted lounge with another Sky Sports screen,more traditional furniture and a card school hard at work.The walls are decorated with Irish memorabilia and many drinks adverts.
Bass,Church End Goats Milk and Morland Original were on offer from the handpumps,decent if a little dull selection.
A real community pub with lots of craic,but no sign of brewing on the premises as stated in the 2014 GBG.

A green painted Georgian cottage styled pub with patio area, adjoining the Coombe Abbey pub. In the GBG 2010.

The interior has two rooms, either side of a central corridor, with the bar room to the left, in mainly white, with some green and salmon and a lounge to the right, which is in green. We went into the bar, where the actual serving bar is and where the sport was on the TV and there was no background music. The place is adorned with Guinness posters, plates and trophies and there is a dart board. The cobs were fine for a quid. The service was fine and the place was pretty packed, certainly in the bar.

Beer; tap stuff including Courage MILD, with Brew XI, Church End’s What the Fox is Hat, a decent Goat’s Milk and an excellent Gravedigger’s MILD on handpull.

Another great Coventry real ale pub, with perhaps the best Church End Brewery beer I have had. Well worth a visit. I will be back.

Traditional Irish bask street local, in an area of historic local pubs. Lots of green paint everywhere and tributes to Guiness and the lack, but not in a tacky theme way. Next door to

Basic inside, there is also a front terrace on the street, though used as a smoking area as well. Beautiful flower baskets outside compliment the pub very well.

3 real ales, including a local one, Church End Goats Milk on my visit. Quality was good enough

A pleasent pub, if not too friendly
