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 Elms

This building was converted to use as a pub cum restaurant c2000. The building dates back to 1600, when George Pooler, a poor man of Allesley, was given permission to build a cottage on waste ground east of the church. The cottage was sold to Richard Ebourne, a baker, in 1629 and his son, also a Richard, built the main house onto the original cottage.

In 1929 it became a convalescent home, after whichj it was presented to the Crippled Children's Guild by Thomas Paybody.

In 1938 it became an orthopaedic hospital, then the Paybody Eye Hospital. Then it became a pub.
