The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

The pub stood on the corner of Princes Street and Cecilia Street; the latter being somewhat foreshortened today.

In 1865 this pub was listed at 1 New Station Road. It has also been listed at New Friars Road and 65 Princes Street (1881).

Nearby in Ceciia street was a horse sale yard once owned by Spurling and Hempson.

After closure, the license seems to have been transferred to the Sporting Farmer (later the Drum & Monkey).

It has since been demolished.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
