1990: Deirdre Barlow and Dave Barton arrive at the Coach and Horses for a meeting with Nigel Ridley

The Coach and Horses was a Newton & Ridley pub located somewhere in Weatherfield. In 1990, Nigel Ridley chose the location for a meeting with Deirdre Barlow to discuss the brewery's offer to buy 1 Coronation Street. Nigel had the idea to transform the Rovers Return into a New York-style theme bar called "Yankees" and offered Deirdre £30,000 for No.1 to extend the bar - £5,000 above the asking price. Though intrigued, Deirdre was hesitant to betray Bet and Alec Gilroy, who were opposed to the changes, and so she insisted on meeting only one brewery representative and brought along Dave Barton for support. Meeting with Nigel in the quiet lounge bar after being directed by the landlord, Deirdre was shocked when he increased his offer to £35,000 to tempt her further.

The Coach and Horses was one of the brewery's larger establishments, with a main public bar, a restaurant area, a lounge bar, and a games area containing a snooker table.

The Coach and Horses appeared in Episode 3073 (23rd May 1990) in scenes recorded on location.
