Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Gatehouse Tavern

Another backstreet boozer in Coventry that looks more like a chapel than a pub/bar. Nevertheless, it has the feeling of a traditional local and was very busy with locals watching the rugby on multiple screens on our Saturday afternoon visit. Many had spilled over into a pleasant outdoor patio to the side of the pub.

6 real ales were on - Church End Brewer's Truth, M & B Brew XI, Phibbs NBC Red Star, Bass, Brunswick Railway Porter & Fuller's London Pride. Lilley's Rhubarb Cider was also on handpull.

Much busier than on my last visit, I scored it a 7/10 last time and I think it just about warrants that again almost 4 years on.

High ceiling sports bar - with the volume on a touch too loud. For darts, at least.

All the furniture is around the outside, leaving a barren space in the middle. Tv mounted above the door, so on entrance and if you sit under it, you feel that everyone is staring at you.

The bass was in perfect condition, alongside several other hand pulls.

Looked like it was staffed by enthusiasts who love their job. Always a good sign.

Promising exterior, apart from the Caffrays sign, the main door leads into a mainly stripped back single room. Three corners retain some plaster but otherwise it's just plain brick. 7 pulls of smaller locals including a scrumpy. Profusion of screens in spite of being a small place. Friendly enough and there's a Camra discount.
