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.

Beerhouse

ADDRESS 5 COOK STREET
THIS BECAME HOLLY BUSH INN

In the 1871 census Thomas Dowse is a licensed victualler at the Queens Arms, 48 Primrose Hill Street. The move to a more central location must have been an improvement, although the adoption of a beerhouse license may indicate some problems for a short period.

This appears to have had a beerhouse license for a short time. It had a full public house license from 1822 to 1940

Known Licensees are; 1879 Thomas Dowse
