Here is what we think is the only comprehensive record of pubs and beerhouses within the Coventry city boundaries going back as far as available records allow. This is an ongoing project so contributions, corrections or additions to this archive, especially anecdotes, photos and media are most welcome. Feel free to contact us for a pint and a chat anytime.

In 1998 the site of the unfinished pre-war museum was taken over by a new pub/restaurant. The architects were Baynes & Co. of Cawston, near Rugby. Brown's had moved from the Lower Precinct to this new building. It is an intriguing place: the exterior has rough - cut sandstone walls, large expanses of glazing and a great curving roof that almost reaches the ground at the rear.

Internally it has a 'retro' 1950's feel with plenty of exposed timber. This is one of Coventry's most successful 1990's buildings
