This was a modern estate pub located right at the end of Kingswood Road next to the Nuneaton to Birmingham railway line. It opened in 1984 at a cost of 500k. The first landlords were George & Brenda Davies. It closed, however, and whilst standing empty attracted vandals. It reopened as The Poacher's Pocket but was beset by continued problems of vandalism, break-ins and theft. The last landlord, David Sullivan, closed the pub after only thirty-eight days on 31st July 2007. Unfortunately, it was burnt to the ground shortly after in January 2008.
