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.



We cannot trace this premises, but Jonathan Bray is also at the Beerhouse, Gosford Street in 1835 and in 1841 at the Griffin, Gosford Street, which must be the same place.

There are a number of other Brays recorded. H. Bray is at the Crow in the Oak in 1876; John Bray at the Half Moon in Stoke from 1835 to 1850; Harriet Bray at the Hospital Inn from 1896 to 1903; W. Bray at the O' Rare Ben Johnson from 1822 to 1823, where Arthur Bray was also licensee from 1835 to 1850.

1835 Jonathan Bray, junior
