Situated in the heart of England, Coventry is a beautiful city at any time of the year, and always worth a visit with your grandparents if you can get them there. Whether you’re looking for ancient castles and cathedrals, modern shopping districts, or lazy parkland walks, Coventry has it all.
As well as a great place to do things, Coventry also has a greatly unappreciated culinary scene. Should you ever be with your grandparents for a weekend trip to the city, you would be doing yourself a massive disservice not to check out these restaurants for your Sunday lunch.
The White Horse
The White Horse is a traditional country pub found on Kenilworth Road, and is contained within an historic gabled building that is quintessentially English. Offering homemade dishes made from fresh locally sourced ingredients, the White Horse’s appeal lies in its ability to offer modern twists on age-old classics. Much like the building itself, it effortlessly blends the old and the new.
Should you or your grandparents be of the vegetarian persuasion, the White Horse will not disappoint. It offers a rich and crispy Sunday nut roast, accompanied by golden roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, seasonal vegetables and some truly decadent red wine gravy. The perfect way to end the week.
The Artisan Bar and Grill
Offering the best roast beef in town, The Artisan Bar and Grill specialises in offering the most succulent cuts and the most flavourful of wines to the hungry populace of Coventry. Located within a former 18th-century workshop, the Artisan Bar and Grill is arguably one of Coventry’s best kept secrets and one we’re all too happy to spoil.
The bar keeps stock of over 100 different gins, beers, and wines, while the low-hanging beams and rustic architecture offer a timeless atmosphere. Be sure to ask for your steak medium rare, and enjoy what the Artisan Bar and Grill has to offer.
Hummus House UK
If your grandparents should be in the mood for something a little more Mediterranean, then be sure to drop by the Hummus House UK, found most frequently on Market Way. Do not be dissuaded by the humble appearance of a food stall, for the Hummus House is one of the most highly rated eateries in Coventry, and for good reason.
They offer the crispiest the falafel, the most flavourful tahini sauce, and the most tender chicken sandwiches around. Sometimes it pays to do something different, and your grandparents will thank you heartily for sharing this experience with them.
The Greyhound Inn
Returning to a pub theme, The Greyhound Inn sits on the banks of the Wem Brook and offers a traditional pub lunch fare. Built in the 1800s during the urban population boom of the Industrial Revolution, the Greyhound has been serving patrons for generations, and pride themselves in their high quality service. Whether your just want a quick drink or a full Sunday roast, you will not be disappointed.
Sometimes the old ways are better, and The Greyhound Inn is proud to offer good old-fashioned service and charms. It’s honest, it’s down to earth, and it’s a treat.
Coombe Abbey Hotel and Restaurant
Finally, we finish with a little something on the upper end of class. The Coombe Abbey Hotel and Restaurant is found a little way away from the bustle of the city, and offers a quiet countryside retreat surrounded by some truly stunning Midlands scenery. The building itself was formerly a country manor, and today it still breathes class and elegance.
As well as offering afternoon teas, scrumptious cakes and sandwiches, and some delicious cooked lunches, Coombe Abbey also offers a little taste of the life of the English gentry. Take a stroll through the grounds, relax with a drink in the Garden Bar, or even spend the night in the luxurious bedchambers.
It’s not quite Downton Abbey, but it’s a close run to be sure.
