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 Recruiting Sergeant


The Recruiting Sergeant was the man who would tour the country, setting up an office at a tavern, to induce local men to join the army. The men bound themselves by accepting the King's shilling. There was a barracks in Coventry.

This looks like a mistaken entry for the Recruiting Sergeant at 14 Spon Street.

Known Licensees are;
1822 - 1823 James Hudson
