The Bull & Butcher
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
In 2008 The Bull & Butcher was named 'Best Pub in Coventry and Warwickshire' at the Godiva Awards, which recognise businesses with creativity, flair and commitment. Outside, the pub's facade is adorned with pretty hanging baskets, while the cosy but spacious interior combines a bar for locals and a restaurant which provides a wide selection of food.
The pub is always teeming with customers, especially on a Sunday - a sure sign of its quality. The menu unashamedly dishes up a range of top pub grub. Homemade pies are the menu's focal point; the steak and ale rabbit pie is simply gorgeous, the pastry perfectly crisp, the meat chunky and well seasoned, and the ale gravy dark, smooth and brimming with flavour. If it is simple, familiar cooking you're after, why not try the lasagne, which is packed with quality mince and a wellbalanced tomato sauce.
All meat on offer is sourced by Berkswell Traditional Farmstead Meats - awarded 'Butcher of the Year 2008' at Warwickshire Life Magazine's Food and Drink Awards - who source from local farms. It's no surprise then that the steaks are succulent and mouth-watering. Finally, spoil yourself with a dessert. The menu includes everything from sundaes made with fresh ice cream to apple and berry crumble and bread and butter pudding, just like your mum used to make.
