British Queen, 41 St John Street
|Alternative Addresses:||48 St John Street|
|This could be any British Queen. The most likely candidate is Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni, who died in AD 62 from self- administered poison, rather than be taken prisoner by the Romans after being defeated by them.
It is mentioned in the Coventry Standard of 3rd October 1845. The pub closed c1903 and by 1904 had become a lodging house. J. E. Thursby is known to have brewed at the British Queen.|
