"THANK YOU" for your quick reply there McSporran, as it's very much appreciated! I notice on the current THREE HORSE SHOES pub that its type of brickwork, and style in general, looks very similar to that which I've seen before on a few other pubs across the city and possibly even beyond? (Maybe that then dates them all to a certain era possibly?)

With its makeover now complete,"THE OLD SHEPHERD" pub on the Keresley Road re-opened its doors again today, with a freshly repainted exterior and newly refurbished interior! I popped in there earlier this evening to have a quick look at it and as you can imagine for its first day back open, the place was really really busy, but a warm welcome was received as always by the friendly staff in there, which is always nice to see!

My wife and I held our wedding reception in the Three Horseshoes pub in Foleshill Road in 1961 I also spent some months in that fire station in the 1950's Delivered milk to the tram depot in the forties Caught trams from that depot in the thirties So there's a little bit of historic memory in that piece of ground for me, don't you think.

This is a great picture! Thanks a lot for posting! Do any members of this threat have any pub pics that they would be willing to share for my forthcoming book on Cov in the 1970s? I write a lot about pubs but have been able to find only a few images. Would be much appreciated. All the best to all. Ruth

Hi Ruth You can get recent photos of Coventry pubs via the Street View option in Google Earth - for example, the Biggin Hall Hotel on the Binley Road - one of my old haunts:

So The Kamara Lounge (Butts Retreat) lasted about a month. It closed again a few weeks back. Now a sign has gone up outside advertising coming soon "The Hamptons" Indian restaurant and bar. Hope they manage to make a go of it this time.

Hi Wearethemods - it is indeed. I live a stone's throw away so keep an eye on the comings and goings.

On another note, I am reliably informed the lease on Rainbows nightclub (the old Admiral Lord Rodney) is up for sale. the owners have decided to retire after 20 years running the place. I'll try and keep everyone posted on that one.

It would be nice considering its listed status if it was returned to its correct name and colours as per the listing rules. Derek.

Having left Coventry about 45 years ago, but still returning frequently to visit family and friends, need some information / recomendations please. Need a pub, for lunch, on a weekday, that will seat 10/14 people on a round table. Any suggestions please. Many thanks. Slash1

The Cocked Hat, Rugby Road, Binley Woods (next door to B&Q) were very accommodating recently - we had a family get together of about 20 people which wasn't a problem for them (not a round table though). However we were in a separate room from the main bar which gave us privacy to chat and catch up. Thumbs up Edited by member, 10th Sep 2017 5:09 pm
