In 1861 Mrs Mary Birch, a widower, was a victualler at the Weavers Arms in Courthouse Green. It does not appear in directories as a public house until 1879.

The name of this beerhouse must have come from the occupation of John Birch. It has been listed under a number of different addresses over the years. it appears as a public house in an 1879 directory, and then not again until 1929. Fom then onwards it is always a public house, so I this must make it one of the last beerhouses to survive in Coventry.

In 2006 it added an Indian Restaurant
