We visited for afternoon tea which was really lovely a variety of finger sandwhiches cakes and scones with jam and fresh cream. It,s very handy for the Cathedral ,Herbert Art Meseum and Broadgate, which is at the top of Town,

Had pizza here which was OK. Service is minimal - we had to track someone down to give our order to and they were not busy, just chatting. Then the wrong pizza was delivered but we accepted it.

Attractive building in the historic centre of Coventry, near the Cathedral. Popped in for a late lunch. Good service, food arrived after only a short wait, was cooked well and tasted good. I am Coeliac and the guy at the bar was very knowledgeable, helping me make a gluten free choice with confidence. Not at all expensive - great value.

I am not sure if the Establishment wants to be a 'quality' restaurant or a 'trendy' bar? I am not sure it can do both. The restaurant is adequate as a good quality pub restaurant - although it is a bit pricey? The bar appears to be a 'Lads Bar' - which some people might find a bit intimidating. But... More

Went for an office Christmas party and all food had been preordered. My crayfish starter was presented with half a burger bun and the frozen crayfish were watery and insipid. The main course of chicken with Jack Daniels glaze and vegetables turned out to be a Christmas dinner of sprouts (frozen and overcooked) carrots (hard) broccoli (hard and undercooked) stuffing...

Myself and a friend were staying in Coventry overnight and visited The Cathedral and saw The Establishment and had a table straightaway. Very efficient waitress who checked that we were okay throughout. Lovely food - good menu suitable for meat eaters and vegetarians. Sweet potato chips were great. Peppermint tea was good and so was the pudding. Well worth a... More

The food was poor. Went to order a starter which was informed many were not on due to no stock. We ordered the Mains three roast dinners and fish and chips, well the fish was sent back as overcooked and one of the roast was wrong order. The food itself is not homemade as the taste had from frozen written... More
