Good Beer Guide Tick #2 in Coventry.

Architecturally stunning medieval building next to the cathedral... somehow surviving the blitz.

Inside its had a posh makeover - making it near gastro.

Four to five real ale pumps on. The Adnams Ghost Ship was in slightly better than average condition.

Nothing to make this stand out.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Golden Cross

One of Coventry's finest old buildings that somehow escaped the blitz, and thankfully reopened as a pub following a prolonged period of closure. However, the interior comes as something of a surprise, as the decor is definitely modern (although, to be fair, it works quite well with the retained heritage features). There is also a discreet modern extension at the back, housing the kitchen, etc. Three of four handpumps in operation, dispensing a 'house' ale, Waggle Dance and a very good Church End Stout Coffin (£3.50).

Newly opened 2 storey pub/restaurant.

Very old timbered building there is a bar on both floors. The beams are painted a neutral green and there is a modern staircase. Not sure these features work, but the building still possesses a lot of class, there is a large chimney near the bottom bar and there are more beams than you can shake a stick at! The upstairs floor is very wobbly and the walls lean out to the street.

3 real ales available and its a very nice place.
