Overview | Historical info | Public transport | Map

The pub's closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.

The police beat list shows that a bobby on beat 16 would walk past the Victoria Hotel, then the Artillery Arms and onwards to the Greyhound, suggesting that the pub was probably to the east of Berners Street (or on the corner). One list suggests that the pub was on the High Street, though the beat route seems to refute this (unless it moved?)
