Located virtually opposite the Crown & Anchor.
Street numbering in this area seems to be confused, but the pub was listed at number 25 in the 1911 census. It's consistently listed after the Grosvenor, working from the Cornhill.
On Sunday 17th October 1885 a man named Charles Nunn, a billiard marker, lodging in Berner’s Street, was admitted to East Suffolk Hospital suffering from severe injuries he had received on Saturday through his being kicked down the stairs leading from the billiard room of the Grosvenor Hotel, Westgate Street. It appears that a man kicked him in the kneecap, knocking down the stairs, and in the fall Nunn seriously injured his back, broke his ankle, and severely injured his kneecap.
