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.

The Eagle Tavern


Once the through road to the "Great Park", one of Coventry's most ancient and appropriately named streets is Much Park Street, seen here in 1912.

Much Park Street 1912
In the Coventry Times in 1855 a Music Hall at the Eagle Tavern was advertised as follows -
' capable of holding 1,000 persons is opened, for present, on the evenings of Monday and Saturday. A constable is in attendence to preserve order.'

Problems with behaviour in pubs is nothing new then ! It is unclear whether the Eagle Tavern was in fact a pub, or just the name of the Music Hall
