Fox and Goose, Far Gosford Street
|Early instances of this name were a reference to Reynard the Fox, a mediaeval satyrical tale which was highly popular.In many cases the inn sign must be an indication that the game called Fox and Geese was played there.
We have references to the Fox and Goose, Far Gosford Street in 1763 and the Coventry Mercury of 1772 and 1779.Then the Fox and Goose in Brick Hill Lane appears on an undated Tavern Check, with licensee C. Jackson. No doubt Brick Hill Lane should really be Brick Kiln Lane, which is the modern Gulson Road, parallel to Far Gosford Street.|
