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 there is no matching record. In 1851 Samuel Poultney, 52, is an engine loom weaver silk in Little Heath, married to Hannah. In 1861 he is 62 and a publican at the Falcon, Well Street and in 1871 Hannah is a widow of 72 and a silk winbder in East Street.

Between 1850 and 1868 Thomas and Eliza Poultney ran the Chauntry Tavern, Derby Arms, Falcon, Kings Arms in Cox Street, and White Bear in New Street. Non of these are in Little Heath and there are no other Poultneys in the web site.
