About the Pub

Late 19th century four storey building with many fittings from Victorian and inter-war times. Above a black polished granite base is a fine recessed pub frontage including a rare central bay bowed and curved window above etched panels. The lower ‘Wines’, ‘Ales’ and ‘Spirits’ frosted windows look to be from the 1920/30s.

Built as an inn during the days between the medieval and modern market in an area which was then parkland. It is alleged that the pub was erected over the Path of Hope leading to a sanctuary church, which condemned prisoners from Newgate Prison were led, if they received a last minute reprieve.
