Originally called the Crown and first mention of an inn of that name was back in 1628. Name changed to Fox & Hounds before 1768.
Demolished for retail development and was on the site of what was the CoOp in Bury Street and is now occupied by Tall Orders coffeee shop and St Elizabeths Hospice charity shop.
Another pub called the Crown opened in 1855 and can still be visited today.
