Photo During Lady Godiva's ride all of Coventry's inhabitants behaved chivalrously and kept indoors behind closed window, except one - the tailor who peeped at Godiva as she rode past. He was reputedly struck blind and gave rise to the expression 'Peeping Tom'. During refurbishment between 1850 and 1860 the SPOTTED DOG, 14 butcher Row was split into two because by 1868 we find the PEEPING TOM (sometimes referred to as the PEEPING TOM VAULTS) has appeared next door. This pub was previopusly the BOARD and later became the ROYAL HOTEL / VAULTS in 1868 Joseph March advertised 'crust and cheese with a glass of ale anytime of the day at the Peeping Tom (next door to the Spotted Dog)' - sounds good to me!
