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 Hotel bar

photo

Hertford Street c1910 (Photo Harvey Barton) Shown with the Coventry Savings Bank and the post office to the left, in that order, the ‘Queens Hotel’ was one of the major hotels in Coventry at this period. The entrance to the stable yard at the rear, can be seen to the right of the main entrance. Although the front was badly bombed in the Second World War it remained open, until Hertford Street was redeveloped in 1967.

NAME QUEENS HOTEL BAR
ALTERNATIVE NAMES Later QUEENS HOTEL VAULTS
ADDRESS WARWICK LANE

This could refer to a number of queens, Elizabeth I, Victoria or Anne being the usual candidates.

Obviously this was the bar to the Queens Hotel in Hertford Street, which must have had a separate license at this time. It was later known as the QUEENS HOTEL VAULTS.

Known Licensees are;
1881 E. Yates
1886 - 1891 A. Bundy
