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 Queens Head


These are typical weaver's three storey homes with the usual topshops where, to take the weight of heavy looms, the floors had to be reinforced. Needing as much daylight as possible for their close work, just as watchmakers did, they had large windows put in their top shops; but whereas watchmakers had theirs placed discreetly at the rear of the house, the not so fussy weavers had theirs facing the front street, so that it was obvious to every passer by what their business was.

There is a record of this pub being sold in 1862.
