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 Wagon and Horses

NAME WAGON AND HORSES
ADDRESS 14 SHERBOURNE STREET

Goods were carried all over the country by horse-drawn waggons before the coming of the railways. Many inns acted as agents and goods could be left there for sending on or for collection by local people. Wagons and horses continued to be a familiar sight in most areas as they carried goods or farm produce over short distances.

c1900 this pub was leased by Phillips and Marriott for £15 per annum from W. Walton, Priory Street, Coventry. In the same year the lease was sold to W. Rowe. The pub was closed and compensated in 1907. It actually closed for business on 30th December that year.

Dict PN Goods were carried all over the country by horse-drawn wagons before the advent of the railways. Many inns acted as agents, and goods could be left there for sending on their way or for collection by the local people to whom they were addressed. That apart, wagons and horses continued to be a familiar sight in most areas as they carried goods or farm produce for short distances.
