Coventry Pubs #2 - The Rocket

Warwick Road, Coventry


Unfortunately, this public house is now closed and
boarded up.  It is located next to Coventry Railway Station.
I thought I had better get a photo, in case it is demolished.

The train in the sign is the Stephenson's Rocket.

What a crying shame. It's a great sign too!

A neat looking sign. Hopefully something good is done with it, without tearing the place down.

What a pity, such a beautiful building!

Unfortunate. Apparently, the Rocket didn't have much fire power with customers.

This is too bad. Tell me that the locals don't need a good pub next to the train station?

If it's not already a historic structure it will be, if it's allowed to live on.
