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 Fox and Goose

NAME FOX AND GOOSE
ADDRESS FAR GOSFORD STREET
ALTERNATIVE ADDRESS BRICK HILL LANE
Early instances of this name were a reference to Reynard the Fox, a medaeval satyrical tale which was highly popular.In many cases the inn sign must be an indication that the game called Fox and Geese was played there.

We have references to the Fox and Goose, Far Gosford Street in 1763 and the Coventry Mercury of 1772 and 1779.Then the Fox and Goose in Brick Hill Lane appears on an undated Tavern Check, with licensee C. Jackson. No doubt Brick Hill Lane should really be Brick Kiln Lane, which is the modern Gulson Road, parallel to Far Gosford Street..
Known Licensees are;
? C. Jackson
