Terrible lost these customers

Getting out of work at 8 p.m. our drive is approximately 50 minutes. We arrived shortly after 9 p.m. we were told we could only order from the late night menu no problem. We order a tavern of wings, 2 sandwiches, and an order of fries. The waitress comes back and tells us sorry the cook is leaving, the bartenders have to cook the food, and all they can do is wings. We say OK and order the wings. I get up and walk around I count 26 patrons, not enough staff to cook food??? They are putting the chairs on the tables next to us, enough so that we had to hold or move the chairs to get by when we were leaving. When I asked for a refill of unsweetened Ice Tea, I was told we do not do refills I will charge you for another, really a tea bag and hot water a refill charge.
Lets be clear NEVER AGAIN !!!! will we go to the Bidwell.

They will serve you cold and soggy French Fries

Bidwell Tavern Coventry Conn. The burger was tasteless, and the roll was stale. We have been there three times so far and each time was a disappointment. They will serve you cold and soggy French Fries unless you specifically tell them you want to wait for the next fresh batch. My guess this place is for people who like beer and hot wings.

Village Charm and Good Food

A landmark of Coventry for nearly two hundred years, the Bidwell Tavern is a great place to get a taste of this historic town with a sizable menu and fair prices. Particularly renowned for its atmosphere (original wooden beams and floors), it is also well-known in the area for its numerous varieties of award-winning wings, in addition to a number of burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Sometimes in the evening it can get quite busy and loud inside, but it gives you an idea of what the old taverns might have been like. Highly recommended if you live in town – certainly one of the top two restaurants in Coventry.
