    Was great curry and beers after the match. Only odd bit was although I booked the Gary McAllister booth they tried to put me in another one, and somebody else was given ours. When I asked the manager he said yes we just allocate the booths after you book them, so why then give people the choice to actually choose one on the website? I chose the McAllister as its furthest from the stage and less noisy where as they gave us the booth right night to stage. Anyway after a little complaining the manager did move the people from our booth and we had the McAllister after all. Just want to know for next time I book. Otherwise great food and good value for money.

    Took my Mum for a belated Mothers Day treat for the Indian Afternoon Tea which was absolutely first class and great value for money. Despite my Mum not being a Coventry fan she loved the venue and food which was outstanding. We had a booth which was comfortable and had a TV with Cheltenham racing which was great as my Mum and her partner are racing fans. My only slight complaint is that despite booking, there was no welcome, our table wasn't reserved and the guy behind the bar didn't really know about the afternoon tea. Had to ask for out Prosecco which was included. However, 30mins into our experience a waitress started her shift who was outstanding and very attentive. Food was brilliant and more than enough - we all took food home in a box - and the chai tea was beautiful and great getting as many as you like. We had two each. Everyone in the venue was jealous of our food. Not quite the place I'd normally have afternoon tea and prosecco but it was well worth it and I highly recommend. Most importantly - Mum was happy!!!

    We were given a different booth to the one that we booked which wasn't a big deal but I couldn't work out why you were given the option to book a specific booth if you don't get it when you arrive. Not a major issue though. Staff were friendly although a little eager to clear plates and glasses (even ones that weren't finished). It felt like there was a glass shortage and didn't really give off a relaxed atmosphere. It was quite loud but it is a sports bar so is to be expected. The food was good and was also good on the previous times I have visited too. Would return.

    On entering the establishment for the first time, there was no one to greet us and to show us to our table, which we had to find by ourselves. Ordering the food and drinks took too long, not enough staff. Wanted cocktails, but was told no they were not doing them. Then we saw saw them make some for others. On the plus side the food came quickly and was very nice. Could of done with more meat in some of the dishes.

    Xmas day at the Sky Blue Tavern. We had a 3 course meal which we were able to pre order a few days before. The food was lovely. Really fresh, nicely presented and delicious. The service was also very good. I would definitely recommend this place. I would say the only negative was there were some people in there who were just having a drink who were a bit merry & loud should we say, so maybe next Xmas they should have Xmas diners separate, upstairs maybe? Overall we really enjoyed it and would definitely do Xmas dinner here again.

    Was very annoyed Monday. When I walked in more than an hour before kick off I was assured that we would be able to watch the sky blues game. Being the ' Sky blue' tavern and advertising the game as an event on your calender why wouldn't I? Very surprised that the girl in charge didn't even know there was a game! Then at actual kick off an hr after we got there she admitted there was never any intention to watch the game! Though she did try everything she could to get the game on. But between the false advertising and the fake promises I missed the first 15 minutes of the first half through finding another pub that delivers what it promises! All that said I am sorry for my rudeness she was just trying to do her job but the management should know better!!

    Was told by the barman the Cov game would be showed. Spent north of £60 on food and drinks to get told after 7.45, you couldn't show it. The place was pretty full and plenty of Cov shirts; would not have hurt to let everyone know. Very disappointed. You have also never got any decent beer. Will not be back for a while
