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 White Horse


The White Horse has been in use since the fifteenth century and is common because of its widespread use. It was the symbol of the Kings of Wessex and is the traditional emblem of Kent. A galloping white horse refers to the Hanovers and dates from the accession of George I in 1714. It is also used by several guilds such as the Carmen, Coachmen, Farriers, Saddlers and Wheelwrights.

This pub opened in 1961. In 1982 this was a 'busy estate pub' but by 2009 it was a derelict pub that had been set alight for the third time in five months. It was boarded up and owned by Admiral Taverns.
