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 Woodlands


This pub was sited amongst woodland.

This pub opened in 1957. In 1977 it was one of the pubs swapped from M&B to Courage. It stood back from the road, surrounded by trees and approached by an impressive sweeping drive. The Woodlands had a proper skittle alley. At one end of the pub there was a semi-circular panoramic window giving views of the woodland.

It closed in the early years of the 21st century and was replaced by housing.
