Pubs are only added to the league after two visits by our team, we are happy for people to send us their own thoughts for consideration.

  3. Soho tavern? Are you serious? There’s more red colouring in all Thier food then there is red in Amsterdam! Totally fixed

    • Daily Ent. Xpress on

      The response on social media from people who have read it differs to your opinion, & trust me if it was a fix why would we put our favs. Just in the top 10. Amsterdam is more popular for its green than red

  13. You need to pay bruford arm in wolverhampton a visit will bliw 90% of these out of the water. How jacks in no.1 i’ll never know.

  14. Try the summerhouse in Hall Green… very very good food.. shame that chefs have to move around… he moved from special spices to summerhouse… guy from soho tavern has moved etc

  15. Went to Price of Wales, Duke Of Wellington Feltham before flying out at Heathrow….. thumbs up

    Mixed grill vibes. Landlord seems like a top fella too

  16. personally, scotsman should be placed more higher than The Royal Albion and Breakspear…. Ive tried scotsman 3-4 times and they never let me down.

  17. We went to The Copper Fox today as you rated it number one, we gave it a 5/10.

    Sizzler – chicken tasted over cooked.

    Fish – there was no flavour on these

    Butter Chicken – tasted better in Soho T

    Fish Main – waste of money

    Masala Chips – these were really tasty

    They obviously saw you guys coming and pulled out all the stops for you.

    • When did they change the chef? The review / title of this trail said the table was as of 5th April 2019. No mention of the chef’s changing in April.

  18. Hey guys, may I suggest you try Chillibite Bar & Grill in Coventry? One of the best sizzlers in the Midlands, particularly the lamb chops and the mixed grill, as well as the best chilli chips you’ll ever have!

  19. Jatinder Panesar on

    From what i know the chef is the same at Copper Fox, how anyone got to that conclusion now leaves doubt on your scoring ss a result?

      14 reviews since Christmas, whether the chef has changed or not, the difference is very noticeable, we love the venue and how it looks just very different to how it was in 2018
