Ring O Bells Yardley St Photo courtesy of The Coventry Telegraph. This was often a name given to pubs by the local bell-ringers. In May 1851 an auction was held at the Ring of Bells, however, on 27th August 1852 a new license was granted to Matthew Mann for the Ring of Bells. So we cannot be sure when the pub opened, but it must have been around these dates. In 1921/22 it advertised 'Prime home-brewed ales a speciality'. It was at about that date that brewing on the premises ceased. In 1926, 1927 and 1929 it advertised 'prime ales and stouts, choice wines and spirits'. On 25th. October 1945 the landlady, Mrs. Amy Davis, was found murdered. No-one was ever convicted of her murder. In 1961 Jimmy Taylor wrote, 'In Yardley Street before the war there were three public houses. Now the Ring O' Bells is the only one remaining, the others having been bombed and on the site the Corporation have built a 10 storey block of flats'. The pub was closed and demolished on 10th August 1970.
