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 Kings Head

photo
NAME KINGS HEAD
ADDRESS 188 - 190 SPON STREET
The head usually shown on signs is that of Henry VIII but at least eight other monarchs have been shown. Sometimes there are different kings on each side of the sign board.

It is thought that these properties began as private houses and were converted to the Kings Head in the nineteenth century, later becoming shops.
