18 High Street
Located across the street from Coventry's Council House,
this building opened in 1896 as Lloyds Bank.
Since the early 1990s it has been a public house
with a number of names, the most recent The Earl of Mercia.
The name is after Leofric who was The Earl of Mercia
and the husband of Lady Godiva.
This is a Wetherspoon's public house which
translates into reasonably priced food and drink,
conveniently located in the City Centre.
