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 Raven

This bird was sacred to the Druids and was known in Norse mythology as Woden's bird. King Arthur was reputedly changed into a raven. The commonest belief about the bird is that it is an omen of something unpleasant. Nevertheless, the bird features in some coats of arms and it is said that in the late seventeenth century the sign indicated Jacobite sympathies on the part of an innkeeper.
