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.
