Description: At the Blue Bistro restaurant we offer a fabulous menu featuring modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean twist, based upon great, preferably local, seasonal ingredients, ethically sourced and cooked with passion. Despite the quality of our food, it is still possible to lunch at Blue for a fiver. Awards include the Warwickshire & Worcestershire Life Food & Drink Newcomer of the Year 2012 and an OpenTable Diners Award as one of the top ten most romantic restaurants in the UK and Ireland. The dining area at Blue covers two floors of a beautiful medieval building dating back to 1450, the exposed beams of which are complemented by striking wooden furniture to create an elegant ambiance and a unique dining experience. The building was formerly a pub called the Green Dragon - reputedly the model for the inn featured in George Eliot's Middlemarch.The restaurant is situated on the historic Spon Street, in Coventry City Centre, an easy walk from the Belgrade Theatre, the Skydome and its Odeon cinema, Ikea and, of course, Coventry Cathedral.We have good disabled facilities, but if you have mobility issues please let us know to ensure that your table is not upstairs!Unlike many restaurants, we are happy to welcome children.

“Lunch on a Friday”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Visited Coventry and was looking for somewhere for lunch and just happened to wander by this place. Rustic furnishing and pleasant staff. We were the only people in there so expect there would be more atmosphere at night when busy.

It took a long time for the drinks to come given the lack of other customers, but the food was good - we had the Gormet steakburger which came in Ciabatta with excellent chips.

Would definitely use again

“Old Coventry at its best ”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Super to see Coventry's old buildings being used so well. A great restaurant with good quality food. A small but perfectly formed menu and staff that were happy to take their time and not rush you through, giving loads if time for chatting.

“Treated, absolutely treated!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

To say we're looked after is an understatement...it was some of the best service I've ever received and I'm a stickler for good service. Great wine, well cooked steak, awesome Stilton with honey and a velvety smooth espresso...loved every morsel.

“Lovely, different place”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We recently celebrated our 1st year Anniversary so we chose to take all 67 members of staff out for a meal.
Blue worked hard with us even before the night to ensure everything was in place.
The evening was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thank you to the staff at Blue for their hard work.
