If you find yourself in Warwickshire nearby the city of Coventry you MUST visit one place and one place only , located by the Coventry canal with a charming view you will find The Greyhound Inn. This unique Pub full of history and character will transport you to the XVIII century, the music , the fireplace, the nice mix of antique old-fashioned chairs and solid tables with the vintage memorabilia  gives you great

DSC_0507.JPG vibes that creates an atmosphere which is certainly a classic expression of British tradition.  In warm weather, the extensive back garden is a big draw  and there are seats and tables on a front terrace also.Beautiful menu that starts with lunchtime sandwiches or English breakfast and can reach up to Pan roasted honey glazed duck breast or Moroccan spiced leg of Lamb with toasted chickpea, herb cous cous and harissa sauce finished with a hint of cucumber and mint yoghurt. There is also a selection of homemade delicious pies and a Pie Parlour where you can find creations like beef borguignon with stilton flakes pie.

You must try the Chocolate fondant with salted caramel. The food is made with care and passion, not complicated using fresh seasonal ingredients and the value for money is excellent. Is my favorite place for Sunday lunch thanks to their great Sirloin Sunday Roast and the atmosphere.

The food menu is accompanied by selection of great real ales and lagers plus obviously a carefully sourced necessary wine list.Front of house staff is helpful and professional as it should be and the only drawbacks are the toilets which also dates back to the XVIII century and you could wait up to one hour in the busy moments of lunch and dinner for the food, however the staff will gently inform you about the waiting times.

Is definitely a place to visit and enjoy a good meal.
