Demolished. The 1883 OS map shows this to have stood on the north-west corner of the junction between New Cut West and Bright Street. It closed in 1961 as part of a long-standing scheme to reduce the number of "excess" alcohol licenses.
Also listed at Griffin Rd (1855) and Griffin Wharf (in 1865 & 1869).
