After what feels like ages it is great to be able to share Table Talk with you again!
So starting in Coventry with two new openings this week. The team behind Monsoon Estates Coffee opened a new street food takeaway and coffee shop in Spon End on Monday. StrEATS will be open till 8pm serving dishes including corn dogs, skin on fries and homemade slaw.

The Clarendon Arms, Harringtons on the Hill, Rocking Horse Coffee Shop and The Almanac are among the local venues in Kenilworth taking part in #EatOutToHelpOut this month. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday you will receive 50% off your food and soft drinks bill (up to £10 per person).
Did you know that Michelin star restaurant Salt also has a cookery school upstairs? The Cookery School at Salt will be delivering a wide range of courses from bread, pasta and pastries to dinner parties and perfect Christmas dinners which are priced from £95 for a half day course.
And finally! Look out for The Warwickshire Gin Distillery new distillery which is due to open in Neilston Street, Leamington in September.
I’m making a couple of changes to this feature – I’ll be posting this update monthly instead of weekly and I’m focusing on just Warwickshire, rather than the wider West Midlands area for now. The links to venues Facebook pages or websites will always be included so that you can click through for more info / booking which I hope helps.
