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 Star and Raven


Smithford Street 1939


An odd combination of images. Was this the combination of two other pub names ?

In the Coventry Satndard of 12th October 1838 it is reported that Thomas Grimmett was evicted from this pub by the police.

Known Licensees are;
1835 Richard Redgrave
