The Butts is pretty busy all year round now. If Cov are not playing there's either Coventry United, some fairly big gigs being held there now as well as the Bears in Rugby League during the Union close season. That combined with Earlsdon Village going up and the additional accommodation for the Uni in and around Queens Road and I'd have thought there would be a fairly decent crowd around there nowdays. The Aardvark, aka Hen and Chicks, seems a lot busier these days as does Akbar's.

NeilsYard, you are correct, Rainbows has closed its doors for the last time on New Year's Day. I think it's been quiet for a little while now with the usual Enterprise beer prices being £3.90 for Carling. It's hard to sustain. Although parts of the building are listed so although there will probably be a change of use, I doubt there will be much structural change. I was privy to see the parts of the old city walls once that currently reside in the underground (but not used) cellars. About The Hamptons, I'll try and keep everyone posted about what happens there. I suspect demolition and housing given the size of the land.

There's not been any mention on here that, during 2017, the "Tudor Rose" (or "Tally Ho!" to our older readers) has been refurbished and reopened as "The Philip Larkin" Oh my

Lovely pub that. I only remember it as the Wine Lodge. Cheers

I guess that's the only Coventry pub named after a KHVIII kid? Although I bet there are a few bottles inside, named after another one!

I can imagine Larkin would be mortified to know that a Coventry pub has been named after him.

It does look that way on Google Earth, Dream, but don't worry - the pub has been taken over again (a mate's brother and his partner now have it) and the Coventry and District Archaeological Society (CADAS) are digging out behind to try to unearth any 'treasures' from the foundations of an old row. There's some more info in a thread about it I'll try to link in here when I find it.
