Queens Road Restaurant, Bar & Grill
The Butts, Earlsdon, Coventry, CV1 3GG
Situated in the elegant, four-star Ramada Hotel & Suites Coventry – located in Coventry city centre – is the contemporary Queens Road Restaurant, Bar & Grill. The restaurant can seat up to 80 diners, making it the perfect place for large groups, as well as those looking for an intimate meal for two. Queens Road provides a contemporary take on a traditional British menu. The talented head chef and his dedicated team work together to develop the innovative seasonal menu. The offering also includes daily specials such as steak nights, meaning even regulars will always have something new to try. The team uses only the best quality, sustainably sourced ingredients, which have been handpicked and trialled before making their way onto the menu. While we read the extensive menu, we selected a couple of nibbles, my favourite being the whitebait sprinkled with Cajun spice and accompanied by garlic dip. From the mouth-watering selection of starters I chose perfectly seasoned dry-aged beef matched with pickled beetroot and a swirl of smooth cauliflower purée, flavoured with white truffle oil. Finished with droplets of dill and tarragon oil and artfully placed pansy leaves, it was an exquisite starts indeed. To follow, I sampled the Norfolk pork medallions, on the waiter’s recommendation. It comprised succulent pork, sourced from Jimmy Butler’s farm, flavoursome black pudding, curly kale and streaky bacon, drizzled with apple and cider cream sauce. Each component complemented the others perfectly, and I was very glad that I had taken the waiter’s advice. Wanting to end the meal on a sweet note, I couldn’t resist dessert. After much deliberation I plumped for the warm ginger tart – a buttery pastry case fi lled with warm ginger custard and served alongside plum compote and luxuriously creamy ice cream. The food here really is fit for a king. Accompanying the food is an extensive wine and Champagne list, a selection of craft beer, and classic cocktails too. All diners receive complimentary on-site car parking.
