In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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. larger map
