The war damage to the pub was repaired when it was practically rebuilt in 1961 In 1961 it was said that 'although modernised 30 or 40 years ago, it still shows evidence of its early history, for it is reputed to be one of the oldest public houses in Coventry. It was one of Coventry's early pubs and brewed its own beer many years ago'. From 1995 it was known as the BEER ENGINE.
