1841 1850 BEERHOUSE, Foleshill
1861 present ADAM AND EVE
From 1845 to 1850, this pub was recorded as Beerhouse, Paradise. However, it was asserted to have been in existence by 1830 by the newspaper article of 1961 shown below. The name must be associated with the street and area name, although Adam and Eve are the arms of the Fruiterers Company. Around 1930 the brewery bought the three cottages adjoining the pub and added them to it. In 1991 it was purchased from Mitchells and Butlers by Charles Wells and extensively renovated.
