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.



One recorded beerhouse here. In the 1841 census Robert Golsby, 30, is a publican in Leicester Row. By 1851 he is 43 and avictualler in Bishop Street but in 1861 he is 54 and a porter in New Street.

This was the CANAL TAVERN, where Robert Golsby was licensee from 1835 to 1841. From 1850 to 1851 he was licensee of the nearby CRANES.
