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 Pannier


Panniers were large baskets used for carrying foods such as bread, fish and fruit. The word comes from the Latin panarium, a bead basket. Later they were specifically the baskets on either side of a saddle on a pack horse.

In 1474 the four year old Prince of Wales was presented with a gilt cup, £100 and 100 marks at an address given to him outside the PANYER public house, Cross Cheaping
