The Coventry Inn...

coventry inn indiana pa restaurant flanNestled in the heart of Indiana, PA, in an authentic English Tudor building there's a great little restaurant (open Thursdays through Sundays) called The Coventry Inn. Think dark exposed beams, warm candlelight and English Delft tiles; the ambiance is intimate and cozy. From the looks alone, you'd think you were transported magically to England! But don't let the looks deceive you, The Coventry Inn is more than just any old ordinary pub. The menu boasts an eclectic array of fine dining cuisine and an impressive beer and wine selection. (Yes, the Guinness is on tap and fish and chips are on the menu for the hardcore tavern enthusiasts!) While soaking in the environment and enjoying the menu, you'll see that the waitstaff is friendly, attentive and courteous. But if you're not interested in the full-on dining experience, not to worry! Enjoy Happy Hour at the bar with appetizers (my favorite was the hot crab dip with toasted pita bread and baguette slices) and dollar draft Yuengling.

Also noteworthy and definitely not to be missed is the Cuban flan. This silky smooth custard is drizzled in a rich caramel sauce and garnished with a candy-crunch bite of melted sugar. Even my mama, who makes the best flan, would be impressed.

So the next time you're in town, make The Coventry Inn a dining destination. (Can't make it to Indiana, PA? Join the Facebook Fan Page or follow them on Twitter for the latest special events information and menu updates.)
