"The food is amazing, it makes a nice addition to Coundon for sure!"
Jack Weatherhouse
If there is another place in Coventry that does food better than this I want to know it cause I very much doubt it
Andy Gough
"Food cooked to absolute perfection. Perfect date atmosphere- feels special... from the minute you enter the building you know you are into something great. Hidden gem. Will definitely return! That chef knows how to cook a steak... a rare thing.. (excuse the pun!)"

"Absolutely fantastic food last night. Everything was amazing, all the staff were so lovely and helpful. We were particularly impressed with the chef who took my friends dietary needs into consideration and took the time to go through the menu with her to make sure she knew what she could have. We will definitely be returning again soon! Amazing job everyone."

Cant even begin to say how good the food was, we were a party of 8 and everyone of us said that it was the Best Sunday Roast we had ever had... Plus the starters were fantastic too!! The kitchen was open and the chefs were really friendly !! Cannot wait to book again, which will be very soon!"

On Thursday, we headed over to Lower Coundon to check out the hottest new restaurant in town.
Located within @rialtoplaza @theloft.coventry is a modern dining space with an industrial type vibe seating just 30 covers.

Admittedly, it’s not the most salubrious looking building from the outside but opening the door to the inside is like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia.

After climbing the two floors to ‘the loft’ we were shown through to a glass topped table made out of what looked like an old wheel where we got to watch the chefs doing their thing in the open-plan kitchen while we waited for our dinner.

I instantly felt at home in my comfy arm chair perusing the menu with a lovely glass of Viognier, trying to decide what to eat. I’m a sucker for anything that mentions Indian spices & cauliflower, then when there’s also pork belly involved that’s my mind kind of made up. So to start, a perfectly crisp piece of pork belly came sat on a cauliflower purée and rich silky jus served with a crisp fragrant onion bhaji. Carl on the other hand went for the arancini, which were undeniably divine. Crisp balls of arborio rice stuffed with sundried tomato, oregano & oozing mozzarella, served with a lovely light cream sauce.

For main, it was a toss up between the duck & lamb. Carl went duck so I went lamb knowing full well I’d get a bite of the duck. The lamb was beautiful. Marinated in Moroccan spices it melted in the mouth & came with a fluffy herb buttered couscous with a generous dollop of raita. It was the ideal bowl of food for a warm summers evening. Carl’s duck was also expertly cooked & came served with creamy dauphinoise potatoes, savoy cabbage & a red wine jus. Not going to lie, I did get a slight tinge of food envy.

And unfortunately that’s where the meal ends. Not one to ever say no to a pudding, the power decided to play silly buggers meaning a third course was out of the question on this visit. But in my mind that just gives us more of an excuse to go back, not that we really need one. The Loft is such a welcome addition to what seems to be a rapidly expanding Coventry food scene and I for one couldn’t be happier about that! "

Last night I got to try out Coventry's newest opening @theloft.coventry having WON a 3 course meal for 4. I live nearby to the @rialtoplaza and was shocked at how nicely the whole interior has been done (very excited for the cinema to open!) Its absolutely gorgeous inside and I'm so excited to see what they do with the space.

The loft opened yesterday and you wouldn't know, the service was fab and the food amazing.

I had the scallops to start with corn and asparagus. The sweetness of the corn worked really really well with the scallops and to be honest I could have eaten 10 of these starters.

The staff too were really friendly. I'm planning a brunch here with friends soon and I'm excited to go back.

It feels like everywhere you look in Coventry and Warwickshire at the moment there are new places to try. It’s hard to know where to head first but when somewhere gets the seal of approval from the likes of @hungri.ness @foodieloutravels @alice_ate_here and @covfoodie you know it’s gonna be good so last night mum and I headed to @theloft.coventry to check it out.


Tucked at the top of @rialtoplaza, it’s a cozy art-deco space with a real neighbourhood restaurant vibe.


We started with a little amuse bounce of bruschetta topped with sundried tomato and tapenade to whet our appetites while I persuaded mum that we needed more than one glass of wine each and should have a bottle of a lovely Italian red on the list.

To start, we shared arancini laced with more sundried tomato and served with a creamy paprika sauce that felt almost like a romesco rather than a creamy sauce and went perfectly.

Main for me was corn fed chicken with a thyme gravy, potatoes, carrots and puréed peas. No fancy nonsense to hide behind here. Simple, quality ingredients, cooked brilliantly, with a twist of imagination but the confidence to serve up what is basically a chicken dinner and know it will impress. Mum went for a tagine of slow-cooked lamb shoulder, packed with fragrance and spice and was obviously good since I only got one mouthful.

After a cheeky palate cleanser of pink grapefruit sorbet we moved on to share what is hands down the best lemon tart I’ve ever eaten. Perfectly balanced between sweet and tart, with excellent pastry and a to-die-for silky smooth filling, I would go back just for this.

Combine food like this with a beautiful interior that is well judged in every way, from the décor to the volume of the music that’s just loud enough to allow you to chatter all evening without being overhead yet not so loud that you’re competing with it, plus a front of house team who may not be the most longstanding or experienced in the world but have the most important skill - the desire to provide people with a good experience - and you’ve got a winner. What a great addition to the area.

Opted for the Lemon & Thyme Cured Salmon, which came adorned with creamed avocado, pink grapefruit, herb crumb & salmon caviar which was just as impressive in flavour as it was in presentation - a truly stunning dish 😍⁣⁣⁣⁣

Tony began with the Pan Fried Scallops, creamed sweetcorn, charred asparagus & garden flowers. The scallops were cooked perfectly & I don’t even like sweetcorn, but it turns out I like creamed sweetcorn! - having tried a bite I can say this is another standout dish 👌🏼

For main it could be none other than Duck for me. The fat was crispy & rendered to perfection and the meat pink & gloriously tender. Served with dauphinoise potatoes, savoy cabbage & a roasting stock & red wine reduction it was quite simply fantastic 😋

So last night my sister and I had the pleasure of visiting @theloft.coventry - a brand new restaurant situated on the top floor of the Rialto Plaza in Coundon, Coventry. Here's what we ordered:

🐟 PAN SEARED SCALLOPS with Charred Asparagus and Creamed Sweetcorn< br />
🐷 BELLY OF PORK slow cooked in Indian Spices and served with Onion Bhaji, Curried Cauliflower and Coriander

🦆 DUCK BREAST with Dauphinoise potatoes, savoy cabbage and red wine reduction

🐑 LAMB SHOULDER braised in Moroccan Spices with Herby Couscous and Raita

🍫 CHOCOLATE BROWNIE with homemade Honeycomb Ice Cream and Raspberries

🍦CRÈME BRÛLÉE with Blackcurrant Sorbet and Shortbread

Every single course was absolutely to die for - the scallops were cooked perfectly and the onion bhaji was crispy and complemented the pork belly so well.

My duck was again gorgeous especially that RED WINE REDUCTION oh my life 🤤 it took all my willpower not to lick the plate. My sister tried couscous for the very first time (I know, can you believe it!) and loved it and the lamb was "melt in the mouth".

And finally, desserts... The brownie was soft, gooey and delicious, and that ice cream was just wonderful. We also enjoyed the crème brûlée and thought the tartness of the blackcurrant cut through the sweetness of the cream so well and worked amazingly.

Thank you so so much to @theloft.coventry for inviting us out - we will absolutely be visiting again and I've already promised to take my partner for date night 🤣

If you're in Coventry, Warwickshire or the West Midlands and looking for top-notch, fine dining food for reasonable prices in a cosy yet trendy setting, then The Loft is definitely one for you. 👀

Last night my dad and I ventured to @theloft.coventry. They invited me a couple of weeks ago, however I’ve been super busy and hadn’t made it over there. It was 100% worth the wait! The food was delicious, I couldn’t fault it at all, staff were all super friendly and helpful. Food wise we went all out, nibbles, starters, mains and desert! (I didn’t think I’d manage the desert, but I’m glad my dad persuaded me)

To begin: Focaccia with garlic butter. The bread was full of flavour, light on the inside with a nice crisp on the outside.

Starters: Mozzarella and sun dried tomato arancini. Dad said he wouldn’t have ordered this, but on trying it he loved it and now would order again! Roasted pork belly with an onion bhaji, again delicious!

Mains: We both went for the wagyu and brisket burger. Always cooked well done throughout, really tender and juicy. The coleslaw was really good, something I have only recently started eating.

Deserts: Crème Brûlée, this is another first for me. I have always told myself I don’t like custard, but decided to try it out and it was amazing! Will be eating again many times. Lemon tart. Again, great quality food!

From reading that I’m sure you can tell I cannot wait to return. The quality of this food makes me think the steaks will be great also.

Head down there as soon as possible, you won’t regret it. You’ll probably want to book because it is tiny, but very personal. Thank you @theloft.coventry

@theloft.coventry , a lovely little restaurant inside the @rialtoplaza a fantastic looking building!@theloft.coventry has amazing décor and brilliant staff. The chef creates fresh ever changing food with what’s in season. We had a three course meal so today we take a look at our starters.

We had the hot chicken wings and soup of the day, both around £4.50 each. The Loft special sauce on the wings was so tasty it made them some of the best we have had. The soup was so thick and creamy plus came with a fresh bread roll and salted butter.

There are 4 other starters available just swipe for the full menu 👍🏼 Just on the starters alone we highly recommend popping in when in Cov or even just take the drive down the bypass 🥰

The mains are even better. As it was a Sunday we went for the Loft Burger, made from Wagyu grass fed beef brisket with smoked bacon ketchup 😳🤤 and (swipe for) the herb and lemon roast chicken with Yorkshire pudding and summer veg.

All of the food tasted amazing, so so fresh and made with a passion by the chef. The chef has free reign in his kitchen and creates as he sees fit, using all the local in season ingredients. The main only cost around £14 each, an amazing meal for that price.

The décor was fantastic and the staff so friendly 👍🏼 If you are ever in Coventry then what not pop in. With free parting nearby and being on the westside of Cov nearest Solihull.

To start we chose the Lemon and Thyme cured Salmon and Pam seared Scallops 🐟

This was probably my favourite course. Super tasty and really beautifully presented 😍

For main, I was feeling like something light after a heavy weekend of bbqs so opted for the Vegan Special which was Mushrooms stuffed with caramelised onion with a Mediterranean salad. It was surprisingly filling, and although I would have liked tomatoes in the salad (best bit about the med for me!) the flavours were great 💜

My friend had Fish of the day which was Sea bream with a huge side portion of jersey Royal potatoes which she gave a big thumbs up (head to my stories to see the lil fish teeth that made us laugh) 😀

For dessert we chose the crème brûlée and Pistachio and honeycomb ice creams, which tasted delicious.

Finally we washed it all down with a an ice cold and lush Pinot Blush 🍷

Molly was our attentive and friendly waitress for the evening and the layout of the little restaurant is perfect for a relaxed meal with friends or family. I could see some kind of open mic night with tapas and wines going down really well here 🙌

Special mention to Mike's soul and Motown playlist which really gave the perfect vibe 🎶

Check out @theloft.coventry for the full menu and most importantly to 𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙖 𝙩𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚!
