Hertford Arms

Picture source: David Gray


The Hertford Arms was situated at 116 Far Gosford Street. This pub is now used as a restaurant/bar.
My father was the landlord of the Hertford Arms for a short while in the early 1950ís. His name was Sidney Pollard. He ran the pub for 18 months but Iím not certain precisely when. What I do know is that we lived there when the Coronation took place in 1953 as Iíve got a photo of the outside of the pub with two enormous flags draped down the wall. I started school at All Saints School down the road from the pub. on the corner of a road on the left hand side of Far Gosford Street, in 1953. Dad took over the pub from a chap called Jim who had moved over to another pub in Coventry called the Bunch of Grapes, but I was too small to remember any details other than that.
