Roebuck, 68 Little Park Street
|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
The roebuck is the male of the roe deer, the small species of spotted deer in England.
This pub was said to be the meeting house of the Lancastrians in the time of Henry IV during the War of the Roses. It is thought to date back to at least c1447.
In Mary Dormer Harris's 'Life in an Old English Town' this is one of the famous old inns of Coventry although she says that it was formerly the WHITE ROSE, of later years THE ROEBUCK in Little Park Street. The name White Rose hardly fits with its being a Lancastrian meeting place.|
