2 for 1 at Playwrights

Stylishly located in the heart of Coventry’s Cathedral Quarter, Playwrights in a café bar and bistro that provides diners with a versatile dining experience. Independently owned, Playwrights is proud to stand out as a little different to your usual run-of-the-mill restaurant. Visiting here guarantees you an impressive menu, personal and friendly service, and a laid back homely atmosphere for you to dine in.

Hand cut cheese and bacon filled potato skins are one of the starters on the menu, alongside the flavoursome spicy tuna and lime fish cakes. From the seafood section, try the grilled sea bass fillets, served with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, and served with rice. For a tasty lamb dish, try the braised lamb shank on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, served with a mint and red wine gravy and market vegetables.

Whether you are looking to enjoy home cooked food with a friend or a drink and a catch up with a family member, Playwrights is the place to be. When in the Coventry area, be sure to book a table.

    We'd eaten here before and found the food to be very fresh. I've recently purchased a taste card and when we were thinking of where to try for Sunday lunch we decided to give this place a go. The food was nice but I was a little disappointed as I was expecting a little better presentation after our first experience. I would certainly visit again but more for the snacky menu. "

    It was noisy and very chain-pubish and the food was pretty run of the mill. Think Whetherspoons. But it was hot and plentyful. I wouldn't pay full price but, with the tastecard, it's reasonable. "

    The service and food were amazing! We were just looking through the taste card app for somewhere to go to dinner, we came across playwrights and thought it looked nice so decided to book. We were seated straight away, the food took a while to come but it was worth the wait, would definitely recommend the steak strips! "
