Swanswell Inn Swanswell StThis name refers to a local pool, the Swanswell, which was the source of much of the water used in Coventry. The pub was first mentioned in 1850. In 1870 the pub was mentioned in the will of Richard Makepeace, when it was left to his wife, Susan Makepeace. Mark William Makepeace was appointed executor and manager of the property during Susan's lifetime. Richard died in the same year and Susan in 1880. In 1881 Mark William Makepeace sold the pub to William Ratliff (of the Coventry Brewery) for £850. In 1899, on the merger of Ratliffs with Phillips and Marriott, the pub was valued at £2,000, including some cottages. In c1969 this pub was closed and the license transferred to the Jubilee, on the same site. That closed because of drug dealing in 1992.
