Stood roughly where Suffolk College now stands.
Closed in 1950, when the license was transferred to the "Maidenhall Inn". This may have been an earlier name for the Smock, though that pub got a license from the Elephant & Castle in 1960, so this is uncertain.
I was born in the Malthouse Pub on February 28th 1941, during an Air raid. My Parents, Charles and Hilda Elvin, were eventually bombed out of the Malthouse Pub (in Long Street) having to vacate on the 17th July 1944. We moved to Rose & Crown and later to New Zealand in 1950 and I currently reside at the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. (information from Geoffrey Elvin)
