The Silver Sword


The Silver Sword


I believe this name has something to do with Coventry's Civic Regalia.

The Silver Sword opened on 3rd October 1957 with the license coming from the OLD BATHS which was demolished in 1951.

In1982 it was reported as 'popular with young and old alike and very well decorated.' By 1985 it had been recently given the treatment by Hampden Host Group with video juke boxes and purple and silver decore, revolving disco lights etc., etc.

Known Licensees are;
1957 Thomas Wright

Trinity Street 1962
