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 1861 census Thomas Humphries is 45, a ribbon weaver in Carpenters Lane. In 1871 there are no matching records.

In 1850 Thomas Humphries is at the Shoulder of Mutton on Old Church Road, which seems a good fit for this Beerhouse. However, in 1863 Reuben Deeming is licensee, so this needs further investigation.

Known Licensees are;
1866 Thomas Humphries
