We’ve been hearing so many good things about this spot that we had to pop it on our list.
Now admittedly, the Coventry Pavilion is more of a jack of all trades than a dedicated steak restaurant. But then this is a gastro pub, so a range of food is what you’d expect. with that in mind, the folks here also knock out Pizzas, some great sharing plates and a selection of glorious seafood.
However, we’re here for the red meat, and here they cook it on their Mibrasa charcoal oven. The go-to is undoubtedly the Tomahawk Steak with Blue Cheese Butter and Port Wine Shallots. Seriously, how good does that sound?
