This sign has been used since the fifteenth century and is an obvious reference to hunting. In 1803 this pub was used for an auction. In 1893 it was owned by Joseph Cotton, who died in 1895 and his trustees sold it to William Ratliff for £500. Until On Ratliff's amalgamation with Phillips and Marriotts in 1899 it was valued at £2,000. The pub was still brewing at that date as Phillips and Marriotts Property Book states that the tenant was to purchase 2 kils of ale for every 12 bushels of malt supplied. In 1903 the license was transferred to the Golden Eagle on Foleshill Road. In 1905 Phillips and Marriotts Property Book states that the license had lapsed and it was sold for £310. This shows what a premium a license attracted. Fox Inn Cook St
