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 Fleur de Lis

This name is literally 'lilly flower', but a heraldic lilly rather than a real one. It occurs in the royal arms of France and is thus a symbol of France in a general way. When Edward III assumed the title of 'King of France' the device was incorporated into English coats of arms, where it has remained.

As a pub name it makes a fairly vague reference to royalty.

This pub is only known from one direstory - Pigots of 1828/29
Known Licensees are; 1828 - 1829 John Bailey
