You might want to look at Oxoniensia vol.57 (1992), which has a paper entitled 'Zacharia's: a 14th-century Oxford New Inn and the origins of the medieval urban inn'. It is quite a substantial report, combining both historical research and the results of standing building survey.

references to archaeology carried out at known coaching Inn sites.
I would also be interested to know if anyone has carried out any research
on the development of coaching Inns, or attempted to produce a survey of
their location within urban areas and the impact they had on development
of the surrounding area in terms of ancillary trades that would have been
needed for the Inns to function in this role.
