What Carrier to Book in UK

Hi there, we have most of our legs reserved for our Europe trip in May but I am unclear how to book reservations in the UK. When I searched for the trains in Reservations, it showed the train times and then said that I couldn’t book the reservation via Eurail. How do I book reservations on these trains and let them know I have a Eurail pass? Bit confused. Planning to go From London to Coventry and then back from Coventry to London before getting the Paris train (which we’ve booked already). We have a global pass.

Seat reservations in the UK, on domestic trains are for free and optional. 

Coventry London seems the most convenient with Avanti West Coast (Google maps e.g. Always nicely displays the operator, or use the National Rail Enquiries website ) . You don't need to let them know you have a pass, just book a free seat reservation.

GWR can book a seat on most UK trains, that have optional reservations. You have to make an online account, and then you can reserve in the booking section.
