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 James Carpenter was 58 and a ribbon manufacturer.

The only other Carpenter we have records of is Thomas James (Joseph) Carpenter who was licensee at the Bricklayers in Foleshill 1888 to 1892. As there were six other licensees between 1835 and 1888 we cannot be sure whether this Beerhouse was the Bricklayers or not.

Known Licensees are;
1835 James Carpenter
