NAME LEG AND CRAMP
ALTERNATIVE NAMES CHESTNUT
ADDRESS BRADE DRIVE, WALSGRAVE ON SOWE
ALTERNATIVE ADDRESSES Lismore Croft, Walsgrave On Sowe
This pub was built c1984 and was Banks's first pub in the city. The name was a result of a competition in the Coventry Citizen newspaper and was suggested by a theatre nurse at Walsgrave Hospital. In this case a cramp was an item of surgical equipment, although the sign has shown a sportsman's leg with cramp in the past.

Later named CHESTNUT
