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 the 1841 census Elizabeth Goodman is a bun shop keeper in Great Butcher Row. This is the only licensed bun shop I have ever come across, perhaps similar to the pie shop in Reading, where the rear of the premises was a pie makers and shop, whilst the front was a bar. A wonderful concept!

Also in 1841 John Goodman is at the Beerhouse, Much Park Street, which became the Black Prince, run by Sarah Goodman in 1850.

Known Licensees are;
1841 Elizabeth Goodman
