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 Magnet Inn


Smithford Street 1900. Classic old turn-of-the-century view of Smithford Street looking westwards from the junction with High Street, Hertford Street and Broadgate. The Kings Head Inn is on the left. Photo courtesy of Rob Orland

Was this a magnet for customers? This one is a bit of a mystery, only appearing in directories for a couple of years. Was it a renaming of a premises, or a nickname ?
Known Licensees are;
1929 - 1932 H. George
