Afternoon tea

Whether it’s cheering yourself or someone else up, celebrating a special occasion or just showing someone you care, food and drink is often the perfect treat.

Coventry’s fabulous food and drink businesses have got you sorted for edible gifts in every form, from tipples to treats, special meals or food-related gifts. We’ve compiled some lovely ways to treat the food fan in your life, including food gifts from Coventry businesses. 

Meals & Ready Meals

There are plenty of Coventry businesses that serve great food and many that have adapted to sort you out with full-blown meals that you can enjoy at home. From FarGo Village’s Gourmet Food Kitchen and Leave it to Esmie to Earlsdon Supper Club, as well as Clara’s Kitchen and local chef Sophie Hyam, there’s a huge selection and many features in our guides on Cooking at Home or Lockdown Date Nights.

Clara’s Kitchen is doing a classic menu for delivery across Coventry, Hinckley and Warwickshire. Artisan Bar and Grill are also doing a special two or three-course lunch with contactless collection or delivery.

If you want to get a bit more creative, M&S has a full range of options from ready-made meals to the ingredients to whip up a feast at home. Also make sure you don’t forget some of the great producers in Coventry, from the fabulous Coventry market to the award-winning Bosworth's Butchers, Taylors Butchers in Earlsdon and Scotts in Binley Woods.

For something a little less time consuming there are plenty of takeaway options, with an entire array of cuisine from around the world on offer. Try pizza from Basement Browns, Dodo Pizza and Pizza Express to peri-peri chicken from Nando’s. Get Korean barbecue from Jinseon, award-winning Indian fare from Turmeric Gold or a taste of Mexico from Selminas - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Whatever the occasion, whether it’s treat night or a celebratory meal, Coventry food businesses have got you covered.

Afternoon teas

If it’s more of a delicate affair than a full-blown meal that you’re after, how about Afternoon Tea? Always a popular choice on Mother’s Day, there are plenty of Coventry businesses offering afternoon teas all year round - with many delivering them right to your door. From their home next to the Transport Museum, Esquires are doing a Mother’s Day Afternoon tea box, but can also cater for special occasions at any time of the year. Another option is Coventry-based Simply Graze, which provides grazing boxes and platters for any occasion.

If it’s eating in you’re after, you can treat someone to an indulgent afternoon tea at Laura Ashley The Tea Room, or just outside Coventry visit Coombe Abbey for its popular afternoon tea experience. In the city centre, Mocha Lounge also offers afternoon teas among a whole array of cakes and sweet treats. And if it’s just treating someone to a sugar-filled dessert that you’re after, you could whisk them off to Heavenly Desserts for everything from

Sweets and Treats

On the subject of treats for those with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of options for gifts to put a smile on their face. Carly’s Confectionery and Covfectionary have got everything sweet-related covered for you, including chocolate bouquets and sweet cones, as well as sweet selections. For fudge fans, the Fabulous Fudge Company sells handmade fudge-based treats that make perfect gifts, while Brownies By Us and The Brownie Box By Emily are both offering brownies that make a great treat no matter what the occasion.

Celebrate with Cocktails

For some people, a treat is less about the food and more about the drinks. Coventry has something for everyone when it comes to treating yourself with a tipple. For something to enjoy at home, M&S has a wide selection. Teezers are offering cocktails delivered straight to your door, while the Slug & Lettuce are offering take and shake cocktails are home.

If you’re planning on treating someone to cocktails out and about, rules permitting, then you could test out the Cosy Club’s cocktail menu, or maybe try a bottomless brunch at The Botanist. And if a night on the town is your kind of treat, you could try Samoan Joes Tiki Bar or Bayley Lane Kitchen & Cocktails.

Whatever you have in mind, there is something for everyone in Coventry to treat the food or drink fan in your life.
