A 4min stagger from the station/2min stagger from the registry office and nestled inside the ruins of one of Coventryís three iconic spires, a truly unique spot dedicated to your beery delectation. Decor ...well, churchy with bare flagstones, pews, carvings, candlelight and candelabra. Gazing heavenwards with a chalice in your hand you will be transported to another time and place. Probably in Belgium. Couple of tables inside, well-heated patio outside- youíll struggle to get a pew or table indoors of a Friday/Saturday night when it fills with a youngish, Bohemian crowd, the DJ sets up and the spire reverberates with funky sounds from the turntable. Not cheap but this is Cov, remember, and itís worth paying a small premium to exclude the scumbags (my hometown-Iím allowed to slag it off). Although having said that my penultimate visit was marred by a baying throng of Bluenoses too pissed to stand. But they were with me. 50ish odd tastefully-selected bottles sourced from Alexander Wines (the ownersí other Coventrian concern); Belgian favourites in requisite glassware, Nogne, Marble, Magic Rock, Revolutions, BBF- that kind of stuff. Nothing rare but all desirable and usually something new enough to guarantee a tick. No cask or keg as yet. Passionate staff that know their onions. Let me have the place for nothing for my wedding reception which scores them a straight 10 from me for service. Actually, minor nitpick: pouring sludge-bottomed BC English beers into pint glasses. Let me do that. Essential, atmospheric stop if for any reason you find yourself in Coventry.

Really nice place - lots of Belgian bottles, in a church spire location. Bar staff were friendly and although I didnít encounter anything particularly rare, it was nice to have access to such a selection of tried and trusted favourites.

Wide range of Belgian ales available, including most trappist beers. The selection of beers is updated monthly. The bar is in a church spire which gives it a great atmosphere. Live music on some evenings and beer tasting events on the first Wednesday of each month. Quite expensive and no draught beers, but it is a great place for bottled continental beers.
