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 Green Dragon

NAME GREEN DRAGON
ADDRESS SMITHFORD STREET
This sign comes from the coat of arms of the Earls of Pembroke although the dragon in the George and Dragon stories is usually green.

In 1737 Mr William Skeers of the Green Dragon was fined for blocking the roadway at West Orchard with timber. This pub appears on Bradford's map of Coventry dated 1748 - 1749.
