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 John Pickering, 48, is a victualler on the west side of Mill Lane. By 1851 there are no matching records.

In the website there only two nineteenth century Pickerings; William Pickering at the Bowling Green in 1847 and Richard Pickering at the Kenilworth Castle from 1879 to 1881.

Mill Lane was the old name of Cox Street, so possible pubs are the Adam and Eve, Duke Wellington, Kings Arms or Old Star ( Star ).

Known Licensees are;
1835 - 1841 John Pickering
