Best bit: It’s one of Coventry’s quirkiest looking pubs
Worst bit: Serving a G&T; without lemon - it's just not on!

From the outside this pub looks like it might be drunk.
It’s a gorgeous higgledy-piggledy old building with slate floors and low wooden beams and its external slants make it look like it’s about to fall down.
It has a reputation for being one of the city’s best real ale pubs and there are usually at least three guests to choose from.
It attracts a good-time gang of merry punters who are often happy to stay till the small hours instead of heading off elsewhere.
If you’re lucky you might find live music in the beer garden where drinkers can ponder what the bits of old machinery were used for before being transformed into flower planters.
