Coventry Pubs #3 - The Millpool

The Millpool, Hipswell Highway

This public house is within walking distance of where we live.
The building is fairly new (built in the 1950's) so I'm
confident that it was never a mill.  
Maybe there was a mill nearby on the River Sowe
and it looked like the picture on the sign.  If anyone knows, please leave a comment.

We stopped by recently to have a
a drink...latte this time :).

Usually pub names relate to their history so I'm sure you are right about there being a mill by the river at some point.

I really don't know..I do know where it is though. I think we may have lived very close to one another!

Promise to go for a beer next time, and ask the pub owner about the name.

Even though it's a recent build, it has character.

You are lucky to have an attractive pub within walking distance. Even if it is not ancient.

Enjoyed reading your comments.

Point taken, Stefan! The whole time I was putting this post together I knew I should have ask the question when I was there. Next time.

Jane - I think so too.
