26 Abbeygate St
The Army & Navy is listed at 27 Abbeygate Street in 1865 & 1869. Assuming no change to the numbering scheme, this is now the section of Trotter & Deane immediately next to the Cancer Research shop.
The pub was apparently on one side of Abbeygate St between 1856 and 1859, then was on the other side until 1869.
