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 Red Rose Inn

photo

Once the through road to the "Great Park", one of Coventry's most ancient and appropriately named streets is Much Park Street, seen here in 1912. The (Red) Rose Inn is in the centre of the picture, the second building down from Whitefriars Gate on the right

NAME RED ROSE INN
ALTERNATIVE NAMES ROSE INN
ADDRESS 35 MUCH PARK STREET
This is quoted as a famous old inn of Coventry in Mary Dormer Harris's ' Life in an Old English Town'. It is probably the ROSE INN, Much Park Street. Burbidge says that the Rose, Much Park Street, was known as the Red Rose and was used as a venue for Lancastrians to meet at the time of Henry VI and the Wars of the Roses.
