Also listed at Waterworks st.

the 1909 Rates book has an entry added (date unknown, but presumably after the pub closed in 1924), "Now forms part of Transport House". This suggests it stood on the north-west corner of the junction where the union building now stands. Old maps show a substantial building running round from Waterworks Street into Borough Road - this may have been the pub.

Borough Road was the part of what's now Grimwade Street that ran from Rope Walk to Waterworks Street (now Star Lane.)
