New Inn, 57 Gosford Street

New Inn Gosford St Old These inns were once new, perhaps replacing older ones on the same site. Many new inns came into being in the sixteenth century as a result of Elizabeth I's policies. In 1756 two soldiers were billeted here. Between 1853 and 1889 it was owned by the Lea, Webb and Archer families. In 1889 the pub was purchased by Phillips and Marriott for £2491/10s/0d and in the same year was valued by them at £4300, including an attached shop. Around 1926 it advertised 'Private room used for monthly committee meetings of Coventry Works Angling Section. Always a good fire going'. Outside there was a water pump, next to which were some stocks. New Inn Gosford St In 'Coventry in Camera' Drew and Mealey described it as 'ramshackle and insalubrious'. It closed on 30th September 1967.
