Lloyds High St The former bank on the corner of the High Street and Little Park Street became a pub in the early 1990s called Cassidy's. This Wetherspoon pub takes its name from Leofric, Earl of Mercia, who founded St Mary's Priory, Coventry's first cathedral. A larger-than-life statue of Leofric and his wife, Countess Godiva, can be seen above the main entrance to the council house, opposite this pub. The building opened in June 1896 as the London and Midland Bank, later the Midland Bank . In the early 1990s it became CASSIDY'S, then in 1994 became the PHOENIX BAR with the comment 'The Phoenix rose from Cassidy's ashes'. At this time it was purchased by Mansfield Brewery. The name changed again in 1996 to LLOYDS NO.1, and then to the EARL OF MERCIA in 2001.
