City Centre Bosses Praise Pub's Arrival 

A restaurant and bar that opened in Coventry this week has been hailed as an 'exciting edition to the city's leisure economy'.

The Litten Tree, which occupies the site of the former Intershop in Bull Yard, offers a variety of entertainment and themed nights throughout the week.

Its arrival has been welcomed by the City Centre Company, which manages and promotes the heart of Coventry.

Liz MillettChief Executive Liz Millett (right) said:

"Obviously the Litten Tree will be open all day but there has been criticism levelled in the past that night-time entertainment in Coventry could be better - this certainly helps address that.

"The Litten Tree is a national chain that people will recognise from other big cities in the country and it is a vote of confidence for Coventry that they want to bring such a big unit here.

"We are pleased to welcome any new businesses that offer local people and visitors to Coventry city centre a greater diversity of options."

Shaun BeamishLitten Tree manager Shaun Beamish (right) said:

"We have recruited around 30 staff and we wanted local people so we went through Coventry Job Centre and they have been fantastic.

"There is also a café planning to move into the Bull Yard near to us so hopefully this area of the city in ready to spring into life."

The 500-capacity venue offers food all day and then a different programme of events for each night of the week.

Fellow manager Hayley Smith believes the versatility of the venue will prove a huge attraction to customers.

She said:

"We refer to The Litten Tree as a chameleon venue because if you were there throughout the day you would see its character change several times.

"In the afternoons it is a smart dining environment where people can buy very reasonable priced food, after work it is a relaxed 'chill-out' atmosphere and then at night it becomes one big party.

"Each week night will have a set programme and that will be consistent so people will know what they are getting each time they visit.

"That will include ladies' nights with complimentary bubbly for the women, Premiership football nights with drinks promotions and top DJ appearances."
