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 Golden Lion

photo
NAME GOLDEN LION
ADDRESS HIGH STREET
THIS PREMISES HAS BEEN KNOWN BY DIFFERENT NAMES DURING ITS HISTORY FROM TO KNOWN AS
1842 1867 CROWN
1867 1928 GOLDEN LION
The Golden Lion is a popular sign, referring heraldically to Henry I or to the Percys, Dukes of Northumberland. I have seen only one record of this pub, in the 1871 Census, so I suspect it may perhaps be a mistake for the White Lion, High Street.
Known Licensees are;
1871 Jesse Sheppard & watch finisher
